On Easter weekend our son’s, Buck and Karl, along with Buck’s girlfriend Jen were home and helped plant potatoes, onions and green beans. Then over Mother’s Day weekend the kids were home and helped plant the rest of the garden. I’ve planted a few things here and there since then but the majority of the garden was planted when Buck was home.
He calls periodically and asked about the garden and inquires if I am keeping it up. He asked for some pictures so I thought I would share with all of you too.
This is the flower portion of the garden….It’s a lot prettier that it looks. The holly hocks in the background will be blooming in a week or two. Then it will really look nice!
I am not a fru-fru flower gardener. If the plant is hardy it makes it I love it and if not, I don’t even buy it.
Here’s the onions and a view towards the tomatoes.
The green beans that he is so anxious to eat are hidden in this shot…
and here’s a shot from the strawberry beds.
Yesterday I was way out in the field and planted a whole pack of squash, another row of sweet corn and a row of beans…and another hill of zucchini (don’t tell anyone about the zucchini-we will have it coming out our ears if it actually grows). I am hoping they make it in field garden as there wasn’t much room left in the garden after it was planted so the extra space was nice.
All in all it is looking pretty good. We need rain here. I watered earlier in the week and will be watering again soon. Tomorrow I have to get some more weeding done but for now, I am off to go to an antique auction with Hubby.
