We finally got it all planted! Kenzie, Becky and I got out there Friday and planted our replacements for the seedlings I killed. It didn’t take long at all but we also had Mosquitos chasing around the backyard so we were git-n-er-done it fairly quickly.

I’m not sure if you are supposed to plant on mounds or not but we did. I’m glad we did because a monsoon blew through that night and the mounds saved our plants! Everything not mounded, was practically washed away!

Have a great night.

Well, the seedlings all died. I don’t know what happened. They were thriving in the window, we went out of town, it rained, and finally when it was looking like a good time to plant the little buggers, they died. When the were looking malnurished I planted them in my kid’s wagon thinking they needed some new rich soil to expand their roots. The next day they were not with us anymore.

On to Plan B, not that there was ever a plan B but now we are going to plant seed directly into the soil and we’ll have to buy a few plants like tomatoes and peppers.

If you happen to know what happened to my seedlings, please let me know. I am baffled.

Have a great weekend everyone. If you have time, you might search on SRI growing methods for rice. I’m going to use those methods for the garden whenever and wherever applicable to see if it makes a difference.

My new tree shifted last night. I’m going to stake it down over the weekend. I hear canvas is good to use so it doesn’t hurt the tree. This weekend is going to be busy in the backyard!
