What I’ve Done in the Garden This Weekend

There are always garden chores to do.

Garden Chores

This is the time of year when things really start hopping in the garden.  Much to do!  Here is what has happened around here today garden wise.

  • Picked up coffee grounds from Starbucks two different times.
  • Added coffee grounds to the compost at the school garden.
  • Fed coffee grounds to the worms at the school garden.
  • Fed coffee grounds to my worms.
  • Thinned the onions in my bed at the school garden.
  • Put a layer of grass clippings on my bush beans in the school garden.
  • Took a bucket to the brunch restaurant down the street and picked it up later filled with egg shells to use for fertilizer.
  • Watered school garden.
  • Watered my beds in the backyard.
  • Harvested a tray of worm castings.
  • Started a batch of worm tea.

This is the time of year when everything needs attention.  I love gardening.  I hope the really hot weather holds off for a while.

I’m pretty sure my bed at the town community garden has fungus.  The beans last year had fungus, and I now know that my tomato plants last year and this year had fungus.  I have to figure out how to get rid of that, but I don’t think it will be easy.  It’s possible that I water too much although I didn’t realize that was possible.
