Today I rode my bike to our big garden. The sun was shining. It was a perfect day to be in the garden. Wait, who am I kidding, any day in the garden is a perfect day!!
Last winter was harsh and we even had a snow storm in May. That, combined with my surgery on May 27th put a slow start on the garden. Thank goodness for my green eyed geek and lil brother. They got the garden fence up and then they, along with our neighbor and a bit of myself, got it all planted.
The beans and peas are finally flowering and in a week or two I should be picking some gorgeous delicious produce. We have 56 tomato plants, green peppers, cantaloupe, watermelon, acorn squash, butternut squash, buttercup squash, onions, carrots, green beans, yellow beans, corn, peas, pumpkins, zucchini, broccoli & purple cabbage planted. Growing food is so extremely fun and rewarding. I don't mind the labor and work one bit.
