I've pulled out some of the flowering collards, especially the ones cabbage loopers took over.. and planted thinned out kale seedlings, after adding my home made compost as a mulch of course.

Snaps From The Garden

Today, the weather is beautiful with bright sunshine and a cool breeze, this weather is tomatoes’ favorite, so I’m happy to see tomatoes responding well to the sunshine after a week of cloudy, dark weather.

One of the beefsteak tomatoes has several ‘superbloom’ or ‘megabloom‘ flowers. Which is basically two or more flowers in one, giving the fruit a weird, large shape.. megablooms are the conjoined twins of tomatoes. I look forward to the freaky fruit to come.
One of the megablooms seems to think its a sunflower, its streched out and standing tall the same way, I’ve never seen anything like it.

Follow The Bee

My garden is buzzing with bees thanks to my tomato and pepper flowers.
Here is a garden photo tour brought to you by this pepper crazy bee:

Jackpot!

I’ve hit composting jackpot!
Look what I found in my compost, Earthworms!

These red wigglers create very nutrient rich compost which plants love!

Gardeners all over the world buy these worms and their castings to use on their plants, so finding these in my compost naturally makes me a very happy gardener! 🙂

My compost has finally matured and stopped cooking, I’m only a few weeks away from using it in the garden.. (my plants will love this)

Starting Seeds

Two things you can do to jump start your healthy garden are to

perfect your compost

It’s a little too early to start seeds, I’m testing soil mixes and lights. Start your warm season seeds in late August.
