My Allotment Garden
I finally found my camera again, so took it with me today. There is some kind of critter there, chowing down on plants, so I feared the worst, since I hadn't been in 2 weeks.
I need not have feared - aside from a few green beans and the lower leaves of a couple of peppers, all seems to be OK!!
I have 2 4' X 8' sections, which seems to be lots of space.
Here is the okra, sprouting even though I forgot to soak it!!
Most seeds have sprouted - not the oregano, but it was old seed. I forgot to bring the newer with me, so next time I'll resow. They are on a good sized property, next to the
Rideau Canal here. I found this rather sad site:
A snapper must have laid eggs here, and some resident foxes found the cache. Too bad, but the foxes need to eat too. Also ran around and harvested some cat mint. I'm going to dry it and make cat toys for the local animal rescue. They can sell them to raise a little money, and it grows wild here.
