Well, it has been the coldest spring since 1955 this year, so the garden is going in about a month and a half late. We will have to take our chances and see what we get this year, but we are going ahead with it anyway.
The kids and I got out the seeds, trellises, and tomato cages and got to work. This year I even paid them each $5.00 to help me out. It got them to work longer and without too much complaint.
Robb found these cool bamboo pyramids at a clients house when they were throwing them away. He hauled them home and we set them up. The peas and the beans are going to have a great time climbing those.
All in all it went well and everything germinated in under a week, so I am crossing my fingers that the weatherman is right and that we are in for a warmer and dryer than normal summer. I am also hoping for a good Indian summer so we can get some corn. If not then we will be off to the farmers market.
This should make for an interesting canning season. Happy gardening everyone!
Here is a list of what we put in this year:
Corn, Carrots, Lettuce, Spinach, Romaine Lettuce, Beets, Radishes, Onions, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Butternut squash, Zucchini, Potatoes, Peas, Green Beans, and pumpkins
