With temps mostly 85F to 95F here in Zone 6 give or take paired with the fact we get missed by mostly every rain cloud and even a tropical storm missed us
I have decided to cut my losses and save my water to drink and bathe in and of course give the birds fresh daily for their needs. Gardening is not for those who are not up to a challenge so I will turn my attention to using my tractor to pull out the old fencing, remove my raised beds and pile up my incredible soil.
I will then pull Forsythias that surround it and move them to my upper yard and then lay down metal wire and cardboard to the new layout and add the boxes in a way that I can top each one off by coming in from the outside of garden and lifting my bucket over the new fencing. Right now I can do that to 3 boxes but the rest take a wheel barrel and with my injuries and joints I try to work smarter.
Enjoy your gardens or the cool grocery stores where you shop for items others work hard to provide for you.
Making Pickles is a bonus
Then I grab my book and sit in the shade and watch my baby birds of all kinds learn how to fend for themselves.
