It rained almost every day last week, except for Saturday. I finally was able to get back out into my garden yesterday.
It was such a beautiful day, the kind you want to bottle up and keep forever!
Here are some pictures of everything in our garden. When we planted two weeks ago, I think they went into some sort of shock...they just weren’t happy!
Not to mention a few more cold nights...
My pumpkins are doing fabulous. I really thought we lost all four plants, but they’ve decided to enjoy their new home.
My lettuce is also doing great! And I planted more seeds about 2 weeks ago and already have them making an appearance. I have green beans planted behind the lettuce and they are doing great also.
I lost all my sugar snap peas. Imagine me crying here! I don’t know why, but they decided not to continue to grow and have completely shriveled up into nothing! I did plant some more seeds, but have yet to see any growth.
I planted more lettuce in this bed and you have to look really closely to see, but it’s coming!
We only planted 2 zucchini plants and they’re gone as well! And we planted 2 cucumber plants and only one survived. But do not worry, I made it to the farm last week and purchased 2 zucchini and one cucumber and the Colonel will be adding these to our garden when he gets home next weekend.
Our tomato plants are doing FABULOUS!
We only planted four and as you can see they are enjoying their new home!
If there’s one thing we have learned in our garden, it’s to not over plant! One year we had so many tomato plants, we could hardly manage! And the same with the cucumber and zucchini.
I have learned to only plant 2 each!
The one thing I’m really happy with are the marigolds. Here’s a picture of how they look now. They are getting so big, I can’t wait to get them in the ground, but not until they’re just a little bigger.
Here's a picture of the view I get to look at every day!
Hope you enjoyed my little garden.
The Colonel worked hard expanding it...and I think he did a great job!
