Here is what we were seeing this week in the teaching gardens Zilker Botanical Garden:
💦 Watering is the most important task these gardens and we are so grateful for the recent rains. The gardens have irrigation and we also get extra moisture from the Ollas.
🍉 The melons are starting to take off. We are most excited about the Kajari melon and we hope we get to it before the wildlife.
🦗 Tomatoes are still ripening and this week we didn't see any stink bugs! We are using insecticidal soap and seaweed foliar spray. The seaweed is like a stress wrap and gives the plant nutrients it needs for growth.
We have lots of exciting things coming including in-person classes at the teaching gardens once a month on Saturday mornings. Planning and seed starting begins in August! We will be out there every Saturday until then tending through the summer. Join us!
