Oh, does it feel good to be posting these pictures, albeit late 🙂
Up here, gardens go in around the end of May, and sometimes that is even a little early. I think I may have gotten mine in a week later, but with everything going on around here, I honestly don’t remember!
Now, these pictures were taken about a week and a half ago, and since then, everything has just exploded, especially the zucchini! I am just praying the squash bugs, and squash vine borer are finally gone.
I actually have some more seeds I want to get in the ground… beets, radishes, and cucumbers. I still have time, but its getting close.
So, on this side of the garden, I’ve got two rows of potatoes, and three rows of bush beans.
And, you can see the two rows of zucchini, although they are much bigger, now.
Next to that I have four rows of tomatoes, and in between the tomato plants I have basil planted. Then this side of the same rows of tomatoes, I have two rows of okra, and two rows of sweet potatoes. I also had a full row of cabbage next to the tomatoes that the ducks and chickens took care of. Next to that, on the chicken wire, I have a part row of lettuce, then the rest of the way is snap peas. The big posts are for the pole beans, next to that are sunflowers, and finally, there are some pumpkins and squash…
And, finally, each corner, I used wood pallets for markers, and had the idea to also plant cucumber bushes. But, those aren’t growing the greatest as I had hoped – I don’t think they are getting the sun they need. The black plastic is to keep the ducks, chickens, and dogs at bay.
Here’s to a wildly successfully and blessed garden season! Can’t wait!
