Well - that was better than I expected! On my last post, just a few moments ago, I mentioned not quite having our vegetable garden in yet...I know, seriously! We just haven't had the opportunity to get at it. I mean, we put our tomatoes out and our herbs (which are doing ok), we planted garlic and potatoes (the potatoes were harvested already and the garlic is coming along) - but haven't put anything else in the ground in our big garden area. That is, until now!
Today, Mark, the kids and I grabbed our box of seeds and without a plan (this is a challenge for me) - we went out to the garden and put the seeds in ground (finally!) I don't know what we'll get from it...I hope that at least something comes along - we need to get better at this. I feel like I put together plans and then they always fall through. We put things in late, we miss our windows of opportunity for the perfect harvest etc. etc. If we are going to be able to put things up, we really need to get on it.
Anyhoo - here's what got in the ground today...
Kidney Beans
Northern Beans
Watermelon (Crimson Sweet and Sugar Baby)
Sugar Pumpkins
Black Zucchini
Yellow Summer Squash
Acorn Squash
Butternut Squash
Ashley Cucumbers
Homemade Pickles Cucumbers
Sweet Peas
Kentucky Pole Beans

Fingers crossed, we might get some food out of this!

  1. Im sure you will get a bonzer crop. Just make sure it has enough water as out of site, out of mind and most pest and bugs arrive when the plant is weakened by not enough water. Gosh, i leant alot from a garden guru on the weekend so stay turned.
