Veggie Garden – Summer Shut Down

We’ve had 2 afternoon’s with thunderstom in a row.  If we get one tomorrow I’m officially declaring rainy season is here.  With it comes the burning heat of the summer.  A beast I have not yet learned to defend my garden from.

So after failed attempts to grow okra (I think the seeds were old) I decided to shut down the garden.  Not wanting to waste time, I covered it with plastic to increase the teperature of the dirt.  This should kill any weed seeds and nematodes.

I will use the extra time to drool…I mean dream about next season’s garden and what I’ll be growing.
