I finally got the urge to work outside and begin somewhat of a garden. I know I'm running a little behind. For the most part I'm doing a back porch garden. I think I'll tend to it better than I have in years past when everything was out in the side yard. Time will tell. My dear husband is gardening north of home at the camp: corn, tomatoes, and I'm not sure what else he has there along with the abundance of fruit trees.
I planted the below items this week......in containers on the back porch. Along with a blueberry bush and a variety of lettuces. My sweet granbaby girl helped water everything and then kissed the blooms on the tomato plant! I'm sure we'll have a bumper crop this year!!
|Sweet Banana Peppers for stuffing!!!|
|Better Boy Tomatoes|
|Rosemary, of course!|
|Basil! For Marguerita Pizza!!|
I also have an 8' x8' raised bed in the side yard. I don't know what I'm gonna put out there. Thinking about squash and zuchini and bell peppers. We'll see. Previous plantings haven't done so well cause of the watering situation, so I've gotta figure out a plan cause the sprinkler system doesn't seem to give it a deep enough watering. We'll see how it goes!!!
Of course, my "crop" area won't look as good as my virtual farm did! It was, however, fun while it lasted!! There were no weeds! That was a good thing!!!
