planking, monkey pod vine, christmas limas, garden stuff

ok so my niece started planking on facebook
so i started reading about planking
so i thought i could do that planking stuff

maybe ill do organicgreen planking
so here it is

rainwater harvesting water tank planking by
the organicgreen doctor


the monkey pod vine is growing
see my previous blog about the monkey pod vine
it now is reaching the top of our
arbor which is about 8 ft high
more later


the christmas limas that i blogged about recently is growing
its now at about 8 ft
its a long way until christmas
wonder if it will outgrow the monkey pod vine

hope it produces a lot of beans
more later

that black stuff in the picture is a sun screen that
ive put over my tomatoes and peppers to give them
some shade from our oppressive 100+ heat

dont put your seeds in the freezer
put them in the refrigerator instead

be mulching your garden
i have a 4 inch layer of mulch on my garden
i use a dripper under the mulch
this way my garden doesnt lose as much moisture in
all this heat

when i recently harvested my onions i overseeded the bed with
black eyed peas
they provide nitrogen back in the soil and provides peas for us
to eat and will turn the vines back into the soil this fall
