Wow, here is my comment in answer to the question:👇
If you don't celebrate Christmas nor acknowledge it, what does this time of year mean for you in the garden?
To me thid time of the year is quite fulfilling and fun although I don't participate in Christmas celebration.
Since we've switched over to the dry season where there is less or no rainfall, all I do spend time watering my plants especially the tender ones.
I devote much time to uprooting weeds from my garden, I do not want the unwanted plants to choke the growth of my crops nor share it's nutrients hence I'm always busy in my garden
While others will be busy making festive decorations in their gardens, I've made plans to fence my garden round with bamboo sticks and twine ropes to help secure it from animals like chicken and cattles which are very rampant over here.
It is said that a stitch in time saves nine, I really do want a bountiful harvest, hence I've gotten some fertilizers through mom's help and I'll be applying them anytime I'm free, I'm quite sure I'll do have a lovely time in my garden this season just as others will
my fresh pepper garden
Chickens and cattle can be real pests! I hope you have a productive holiday fencing and tending the garden. I have been mulching mine to protect the soil from the heat.
It is advisable to pull the unwanted weeds for our plants to have healthy growth. And you are correct, the nutrients received by the plants would be divided if it's shared with these weeds. Good luck with fencing your garden.☺️
Most of the time those unwanted weeds just show up even if you already uprooted them. They're just everywhere and pops out when you're not paying attention to your garden. Really troublesome..
I see you'll be doing a very great job in your garden this season, gosh! Your peppers look nice and true chicken and cattles are one huge problem to plants, I once planted peppers which grew beautifully but one morning I woke to it being rooted out by a hen and I was so heartbroken. I really love the idea of fencing, would do so when I get really involved in planting large crops again. Nice job
