Garden Update

For the last two weeks we have been planting the garden with lots of success and a couple of failures. The tomatoes and peppers are thriving, growing daily and enjoying the warm weather and recent rain. The butter peas and scalloped squash are up and growing. Purple hull crowder peas are slowly peeking through the soil. The failures include the La France green beans and zucchini and yellow squash. They were planted early and it looks like they will need to planted again. The cucumbers are questionable. We were unable to find seeds so we bought a few plants. I'm not sure how they are going to do. We have always had more success when planting from seed.
Everyday the garden changes. Kenny is working on the irrigation and then we will begin mulching.
Tending to the garden is a lot like tending to your children. You work hard to provide the perfect environment so they will grow and flourish.

  5. Hi! love your fenced in garden. We're going to have to do the same. Between the deer and rabbits, we can't grow peas and other great home garden items. You have inspired me!
