Garden | June 2020

Garden update for June 2020 | On The Creek Blog

Here's the garden update for June 2020!

The garden is off to a great start this year!

We planted the garden over Memorial Day weekend this year.  When we planted, the tomatoes were super tiny & I was afraid they weren't going to make it.  A few weeks in, I added the natural blood meal to the plants.  Then they really started to take off!

Our tomato plants are now huge!  They're the biggest tomato plants we've ever grown & it's only a little into July!

Using Natural Blood Meal on Tomato Plants

Using Natural Blood Meal on our tomato plants!

I've never really been interested in using plant food in the garden.  I always thought of it as the easy way out.

That also could explain why my gardens haven't done their best in the past!

Sometimes you need a little help & I got it unexpectedly this year.  One day, our neighbor brought over a bag of plant food.  He used it in his garden in the past & suggested we use it on ours.

Up until this point, our tomatoes were kind of struggling.  We had started them from seeds super late & they were still super small when we put them in the garden.

Roses 2020

Our roses are in full bloom!

The climbing roses we planted last year are starting to bloom this year!

As I mentioned in my spring yard walk post, a couple of the rose bushes we planted last year died.  I'm happy that these climbing roses made it!

I wanted to put some rose plant food on them but I never got around to it this year.  Luckily, they seem to be doing well.

I never saw myself as someone who has a lot of flowers & a huge garden, but here I am!

Remembering our sweet dog.

Our sweet boy, Rain, passed away last week.

He was 16 years old.

It's been so difficult without him here.  I miss him so much.

He was the best dog we've ever had.

Since he was an older dog, I tried to prepare myself for his passing.  I was still a total mess.  No amount of thoughts beforehand could prepare me for his loss.

He would have made such an amazing big 'brother' to our foster children.

I hope we'll be able to meet again someday, sweet boy.
