Happy Saturday everyone!
Thought I'd show you how my vegetable garden is doing. All of you garden pros out there who plant a garden every year~ you'd better not laugh!!! This is my first year at gardening and we got a late start, not to mention how busy we were with my daughter moving to California...
Ok, here goes... We finally have tomatoes! Yay!
Remember how our newly built beds looked in March?
Now we have 8 tomato plants growing in various stages. I think Romas, which are my favorite, are the easiest to grow and the plants are much prettier and compact.
The carrots have finally taken off. I never did get a chance to plant a second row of them :(
Next year I will plant things earlier and closer together.
I read that Marigolds keep some bugs away. So far, knock on wood, I haven't seen any!
I planted potatoes in the only little strip of sun in our backyard. This is a photo of them awhile back. They aren't looking so pretty right now, which means they are almost ready to harvest!!!
I've learned a lot about growing vegetables this year. I know a lot of you are practically pros at it!
Do you have any words of wisdom for me???
Have a great weekend!
