Watering Tuesday 5/5

The garden looked absolutely beautiful today! Someone had already watered when I got to the garden this afternoon, but a lot of the beds and perimeter plants were already drying out so I re-watered them.

The blueberry bushes have tons of flowers on them:

confession: instagram had it’s way with the blueberries.

So does the orange tree:

Like someone mentioned in a previous post, a lot of the cabbage, lettuce, and other plants on the perimeter of the garden look like they are struggling, perhaps because the water cannot drain. They are flooded with murky water & thick (gunky) mud, so I dumped some of the water, leaves and gunk from a few. But we may want to do something more about this. Here’s an example:

The purple basil is starting to sprout:

That’s all for today.
