Garden Update- Planting Begins

Well, spring is really here!  It might have made a jump in to summer (93 today) but I’m not going to complain, it feels amazing!  I didn’t make it in last week to say hello because The Hubs and I were finally able to get in the yard and start prepping and planting.  This is what most of our nights after work looked like.

Oh yeah, and we built a shed!  It’s a snap together, kit we picked up, took a solid afternoon.  It’s going to come in handy storing garden supplies this summer.  It kind of makes me want to paint our house to match.  This picture would be even better if the lilacs were in bloom and I’d moved the pooper scooper…

As far as the actual garden goes, we got the main plot cleared, tilled, composted, and planted.  We’re trying onions, lettuce and chard in a few little rows.

Next to that, we’ll have 6 squash; zucchini and butternut.  We used our mini flower pots to remember where the seeds are. We’ll take them off once things start to sprout.

Last we’ll have cucumbers for pickling.

Oh, and those tomato seeds we started a couple of weeks ago, well look at them now!

These babies will go in the ground pretty soon.  We’ve been placing them out in the sun during the day now that it’s warm.  There are 9 plants of each type of tomato so we’ll be able to pick out the best of the best when they’re ready to plant.  We still have to plant the smaller plant on the other side of the yard, plus all the pots on the patio.  Hopefully we’ll finish it all up this weekend.

Oh yea!  I’m also going to volunteer at the farmer’s market this weekend!  I’m really excited to help but even more excited for it to be starting back up again.  I’ll be picking up some goodies for sure!
