The Garden’s In

After months of dreaming, planning and buying the garden is finally in! God gave us a gorgeous sunny week in which to start it in, too! The boys were TONS of help! Especially since we had to re-turn and re-till the entire thing by hand. Ugh! :o(

We also totally reconfigured where everything was planted! We also planted a whole lot more and put everything MUCH closer together. There was so much wasted space last year. But since this is only our second year at this, we’ll see how it all works out…

But everything is in and now we just wait… In the next three weeks we will see what comes up, what needs to be replanted, what dies and what needs to be replaced with starts from the Farmers’ Market. I hate this part!

This year we have: rhubarb, raspberries, blueberries, dill, basil, cilantro, lettuce, spinach, lemon balm, chives, mint, orange mint, oregano, sunflowers, strawberries, corn, 5 kinds of tomatoes, peppers, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, watermelon, zucchini, peas, snow peas, acorn squash, summer squash, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, 4 kinds of cucumbers, and 3 kinds of pumpkins. Yup, I think that’s it… :o)
