Gardening Time

Last weekend, we powered through and got the garden all planted and ready to grow. Colette spent many, many days whacking down saplings in the lower part of the yard, stripping their leaves, and making some fine wattle fencing to border each garden bed.  We love how it looks!  All the plantings were either grown from seed by me, or purchased from local, small-scale organic farms.  Can't wait for everything to grow!

Growing this year: eating tomatoes and plum tomatoes (11 plants in all), yellow and green zucchini, butternut squash, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, lettuces, onions, carrots, eggplant, basil, chives, sage, and parsley.  And growing on the trellis beneath the deck: green beans, cucumbers, and jack-be-littles.

I'm hoping for a great harvest.  Technohubby just wants SALSA!
