If a picture is worth a thousand words, then this will be a 4 thousand word posting.
So far this year I have not had to abandoned my tiny garden to the 105+ degree days, our on going drought nor have the grass hoppers that eat everything to the ground last year arrived ‘yet’.
My tiny farm with my tiny garden is located in what has been for the past 50 or so years wheat growing land and later was a cow pasture. This land only has about 1 or 2 inches of useable top soil that thinly covers 25 feet of very tight black and red layered clay soil.
Several cucumber vines are blooming and I have one cucumber that in a few days will find it’s way into a fresh salad.
It you strain your eyes you can find two tiny squash hidden away under the leaf’s of this squash vine.
So far this is the only pepper plant that has germinated and grown to a size large enough to bloom. On my next trip to town I will buy a six pack of hot peppers to add to my tiny garden.
As is normal for southwest Oklahoma, the past week we have had an unrelenting south and southwest winds 15 to 30 mph. The dry wind is beginning to take it’s toll on my young tender garden plantings.
