I was finally able to make a lot more progress on the water tower. The weather has been nice and time has been available. Should only be a few more days of work before we can collect water in this system.
The garden is doing great. We’ve had a few peppers now. The pumpkin flowers are about to open. The pomegranate tree and loquat tree have shown lots of new growth since planting.
Suggested by a local gardener, we planted garlic around the perimeter of our vegetable gardens. This is done to help eliminate unwanted pests in the garden without using chemicals. And we never use chemicals, this is strictly an organic garden. We use fertilizers from Lady Bug, a local company in Austin,TX that makes natural gardening products.
