After spending a couple of hours in the garden yesterday, planting out a few seedlings and potting up some more seeds, I came home to a disaster zone after walking the kids to school this morning. First of all I stopped out the front to check on our pumpkins and sunflowers we planted yesterday. I was horrified to find 2 out of the 6 pumpkins that we planted had been eaten by bugs :(, one is totally destroyed, the second is about half way gone. That was enough to deflate me but then I actually walked into the house and looked out the back door. I just about cried on the spot.
Our little greenhouse which hubby had lovingly tied securely (or so we thought) up on two of our benches had blown over in the wind. Now it is a little windy today but nothing in comparison to some of the winds we have had over the last month or two since the shadehouse had been set up, but this time it got blown over. I am just totally devastated.
All my seeds that I had spent time labelling, and planting out and watering for the last week or two and some that I had only planted yesterday are now laying in a mount of dirt at the bottom (or should I say top) of the shadehouse :-(!!!
Hubby had tied it up on to our benches because our older dog likes to go around the yard peeing on anything that stays still for more than 30 seconds and I really didn't want to have to put the zipper up and down with his pee all over it,,,,,yuck!
Right now I am considering my options. They are:
1. To scoop the soil out of the shadehouse and place it in the veggie garden and sort of see what happens;
2. Just shovel all the soil back into the 30 or so containers and replant more seeds in it, relabelling as I go.
I swear my luck just has to get better eventually!!! Right now it just seems to be one thing after another with kids getting sick, school issues, Hubby's work and now garden issues grrrrrrrrrrr
