Garden is in!

Whew!  I finished planting my garden today.   That's a load off!  We planted all heirloom seeds this year, so I have do some studying on harvesting seeds.  We are trying a bunch of new veggies this year.  I have always done corn, beans, cukes, potatoes and carrots.  This year we are adding turnips, beets, lettuce, tomatoes, melons, onions, peppers and a bunch of herbs.  Taking a swing at companion gardening.  There is so much info on this stuff, it makes my head swim!  Anyway, one of my kids loves gardening with me, so at least I'll have some help with weeding.  I don't know about anyone else, but as far as I'm concerned, dropping tons of money at the grocery store is so yesterday! ;)

Re: Garden is in!

Good for you PD, there is such a good feeling when grow your own food.:thumbs: 

I have had meals on my table where everything on it has come from me growing and raising it.  Great pride in it and knowledge of knowing what is "in it" not to mention the great taste :eat:

Great also that you have a helper with you in the garden as well :thumbsup:

Re: Garden is in!

I saw with my own eyes last year how very beneficial weeding is.  I was away for a week near the end of July, and when I got home, I could hardly tell where the rows were.  I got it weeded and the garden lept up so fast it was alsmost like Mary Poppins had walked through!  Who knew, my mother was right all along...:wise:
