The Queen of the Garden celebrated her 19th birthday on Cinco de Mayo. She enjoyed all the treats she could eat then perched up on the steps to oversee her staff (me) work in the garden. This is a routing (sans treats) she does most every evening.
Here’s what’s going on today:
Volunteer potatoes are sprouting amongst the green bunching onions. They will be removed to make way for the tomatoes. Potatoes and tomatoes do not grow well together because of the spread of blight. So…the potatoes gotta go.
Yesterday, the potted citrus (lemon & mandarin) had all the pansies removed, soil fluffed, and were deeply irrigated. Today, they look a bit better. I’m confident the lemon will progress; but the prognosis for the mandarin isn’t good.
As the sun sets, the Queen gives her approval to her staff for a job well done then takes a nap because it’s so tiring being the Queen.
