Here’s what’s been happening in Maybelline’s Garden this weekend.
Farmer MacGregor was busy constructing the supports for the tomatoes and lemon squash. He even has plans to make drying racks for the garlic and onions. Neighbors are in awe of his talent. The green onions were planted in one bed they will share with tomatoes. The other tomato bed will also house radishes. Farmer MacGregors supports will allow the tomatoes to be strung up allowing plenty of sunshine to hit the onions. The companion gardening of placing onions amongst the tomatoes should help with pest control. The same goes for the radishes. The hot peppers were transplanted into their final stage before being planted in the garden. They join the tomatoes in the nursery that looks like its making the best use of cups after a kegger. My mother’s lemon tree is loaded with small lemons. I squeeze the juice and freeze it in ice cube trays storing the cubes in freezer bags. Juice is always available that way plus the cut lemons make the house smell great.
