We have harvested (and enjoyed) the beets, broccoli, radishes, strawberries, snow peas, and Romaine lettuce. Now, we are enjoying the last of the strawberries, green beans and tomatoes!
We have recently planted 2 green, 1 red, and 1 yellow bell pepper plants. They are already blooming, so I'm am anxiously awaiting their arrival!
After seeing pictures of a friend's garden last year, I planted zucchini and yellow squash in tires in our front bed. I wish there was a better place to place them, but I have no backyard... just a back HILL!
They seem to be enjoying their new home, check out the first blossom on the zucchini plant!
1) Remember to harvest and water!
(Do you wonder how I know this?!?!)
2) Remember to use gloves when working in new, ummm, manure.
3) The teenagers aren't as excited as I am, but we are spending time together. This means a lot to this homeschool mom of 2 high school seniors and 1 sophomore. My time is limited. : [
