I sure love summer! I love the long, warm days, swimming at the beach, and not having to wear layers and layers of clothing. Another great thing about summer is my garden. I’ve been eating out of it for the past month, and it’s fantastic. So far I’ve harvested cucumbers, turnips, zucchini, a couple kinds of leaf vegetables and lettuce, and a variety of herbs. The tomatoes are still green but they should turn red and sweet any day.
This year the garden seems to be doing a bit better than last year. I think the reason is that in the spring I made a seaweed fertilizer and mixed it into the soil before planting my seeds and seedlings. Seaweed fertilizer is easy to make and plants seem to love it. I found the recipe online. My melon plant is absolutely thriving!
