We finally got our Summer garden planted last weekend. I should say replanted. We have been trying to plant a few things in between rain showers since Easter. It has been a cold wet Spring.
Our onions are growing very slowly.
Our first planting of squash only has a few sprout in the cold wet conditions so we have replanted to fill in the holes. We planted several varieties including spaghetti, zucchini, and zephyr.
This year we are trying pole green beans because I hate picking bush beans. We have never grown pole beans. Our first planting of these was a bust too so we have replanted. There is really no rushing Mother Nature.
This is our first year to plant sugar snaps too. They have grown but no flowers. I thought we would be eating peas by now.
Our tomatoes have been moved all over the house to every sunny window and are finally planted very deep in the garden. They are my favorite vegetable/fruit that we grow. I’m dreaming of that first tomato sandwich of summer.
We also have peppers and okra planted. We have had a week of warm sun since these photos and now a whole weekend of rain. I will try to get an update this week. JQ has kept me busy with prom and graduation so I haven’t seen the garden this weekend. Farmer Rick says it is starting to grow! How is your garden growing? Do everyone else get too excited and plant too early too?
