The garden- June

A week ago Cameron grabbed some free mulch for me at our compost facility. I wanted to put it between the beds to keep weeds at bay. I had some really good helpers for that. It was funny, Cameron started to unload it and asked for help. The boys wandered around and played but didn't want to help. The moment he called out 10 cents a bucket they were all over there in a second helping.



I have my soaker hoses on a timer now. Cameron taught me a lesson in fluid mechanics in the midst of getting those working. I'm sure most people already know this but at the splitter for the hoses I had one longer hose hooked up and one shorter (it was a different set up than you see here below). I was upset because the shorter hose was working and the longer hose the water was barely dripping out. He told me they both need to be the same length to have equal water pressure. Of course I didn't believe him. And well... he was right :) Publicly admitting that here :)



Since I didn't get my strawberries in the ground in time, we went to a you pick place a couple weeks ago. I made strawberry syrup, canned strawberry jam, and we ate the rest.
