I went to water the garden two days before thanksgiving. It seems that there had been a lot of rain coming along, so I did not water it to much. This plant looked in a lot better shape that most of the others.

I did my garden duty on Wednesday December 4, 2013. Now that it is December the weather is starting to get cold and windy. On this particular day it had been raining all morning and most of the week. Since it had just rained I didn’t bother to water the plants because they were still wet from the rain. The plants looked good and healthy. There were four good ones out front and two in the back that looked like they were doing well. I was actually very surprised that so many plants made it. I also pulled some weeds that were starting to come up in the beds around the plants. There was one dead plant in the front bed but besides that everything looked pretty good!

The weather when I was tending to the plants was a little chilly, but otherwise sunny and pleasant. I was surprised how much they have grown since we planted them a few months ago. They look great!

I went to our garden on this cold and windy day to find garbage and leaves surrounding our plants, I removed everything and took a picture of this plant that looks like it’s in really good shape. A purple plant looked very droopy, so I watered it a bit extra after the other plants were done. Our plants are growing really nicely!

On Monday I watered our garden. The weather was sunny and low 80’s, however the past week has been a little cooler. The buds are growing quite rapidly and are showing their green leaves. I wasn’t sure how high of pressure to use on the hose so I showered the plants without flooding them. There were some weeds growing around the plants which had to be removed. One of the purple plants looked a little drooped so I propped it up with soil.

Today was a dark, cold, rainy and overall gloomy day in Columbia. It had been raining off and on before my scheduled watering time of 3pm. The night before it had also poured rain. Therefore, when I went to the garden at 3pm the soil was already soaked. Due to the soil conditions, any additional watering was unnecessary because it would not be good for the plants to become over-watered. The last time I had seen the garden was when the seeds were planted. The plants had come quite a long way since then.

At first I thought the water was too strong and would ruin the plants, but it turned out okay. I watered the plants till I felt like the soil was damp. The plants seem to be growing well, which is great.

Today I watered the garden for about 15 minutes. It looked dry and it has been hot this week so that’s why I watered it for so long. I removed weeds and trash that was in the garden. The plants seem to be growing well. The one in the picture is growing very well and looks nice. The other plants are also coming in and sprouting up good.

Today I went out and tended to the garden. It looks like some of our plants are finally beginning to sprout! It’s so cool to see them growing. And the plants that were already there are getting significantly bigger! I took this photo after watering once. Then I moved away some trash around the front plot, checked the soil, and went over certain dry spots again.

I went and watered the plants again today. No noticeable growth since tuesday. I weeded some and took some trash off the plot. The plants that were there before we planted have gotten bigger while the ones we planted are just starting to grow above the dirt.
