So the word is in. The Community Garden is plodding along and not looking very good because our soil is lacking in Nitrogen. The people in charge are going to provide us with fish emulsion, green waste compost, and straw mulch to help. But I can’t help wondering if it’s too late to really get a good harvest out of it. I’ve got a few tomatoes on the vines, and they’re still growing despite the lack of foliage on everything else, but the soil amendment party isn’t until next week. I think I’d rather go find myself some fish emulsion today and get it started now. It wouldn’t hurt to have more, right?
Despite having been planted on May 16th, my swiss chard is still teeny leaflings poking out through the soil, no more than 1/2″ high. *sigh*
Feeling a bit disappointed about it. The picture at the top of this post is of the mint growing in a pot on my porch. It’s anything but disappointing! It’s growing like crazy and seems to be thriving in the sunny spot on my porch. I’ve also got some potted sage there that is happy.
