And when the drought finally broke all hell broke loose with it. The storm howled and unleashed its first round of hail from the south, then southwest, then west (with more hail), then northwest, then north (I swear I saw Elvira Gulch ride by on her bike in mid-air), and for just a moment there I thought we might emerge into a technicolored landscape, with Pink Floyd's "Money" rising in the background.
Losing streak suddenly over, and a few days' reprieve from endless watering duty, perhaps it's time to share some photographs of Small Batch Garden, and talk about some of the wondrous things that have transpired here since we last met behind the camera.
|On to that little ailing nectarine tree we talked about in May 24th's post, Fast Forward. At that time the tree was not happy, looking like it was ready for some winter rest, and sporting a black spot issue on the leaves. If you remember, we treated it by chopping that big healthy comfrey plant underneath it back to the ground, and using it as a mineral dense, high-potassium mulch, (which is the whole reason it's there).|
Well, no aerial tour this time. The black asphalt roof is too hot to climb up on! But hopefully there was something useful in this photo set that you can apply to your garden, and more importantly, to your philosophy. I'll check back in with you again very soon...
