Preparing the vegetable garden

The weather was in the mid 90’s this morning, but cooler weather is on the way tonight. We are heading into the mid 60’s tonight and high in the 70’s tomorrow (finally fall weather)

Today I added home made compost to my vegetable bed, after four months of slow cooking in the backyard, it was finally ready for the garden. This is the first time I’m using home made compost and I am excited to see the results.

I should be ready to plant in a couple of weeks, I am waiting for my local nursery to bring in the tomato and pepper seedlings, in the mean time I am covering the bed to prevent weeds.

Today I harvested the other banana tree, the last bunch of bananas were such a success that these are all spoken for.

there is nothing like home made compost for plants; at least you know what has gone inside. I am sure you will be pleased with the results.

Hi Rusty...bananas, how lovely.

I love my own compost....I think it is the best and so very satisfying......

I can't imagine harvesting bananas from my own garden!

Compost rocks, especially selfmade!
