A update on our garden

Growing up we always had a garden. My parents at the ages of 80 and 78 still love to garden. I have not had a garden since Bryan had his stroke. But this year I decided to have one again. It is pretty theraputic to work with the soil. I planted 2 kinds of tomatoes, zucchini, beans, onions, peas and 2 kinds of cucumbers. I thought I had 4 zucchini plants, but turns out I had 8! Guess we will be eating a lot of zucchini! Candy loves laying in the sun while I work in the garden. She likes taking wood off the wood pile and waits for me to get done to play fetch. I often question her pick of the piece of fetch wood and go get a tennis ball. I don't think my arm would last long throwing a LOG! After lots of nibbling by the rabbits we broke down and put a little fence around the veggies. Worked! I tried 3 different types of twine for the climbing veggies and everyone broke. I was so tired of fixing it, that I figured I would just leave it and hope it would work. So far so good!

  1. Your garden is looking really good! Looks like you'll be eating lots of zucchini before long, lol! Wayne has planted tomatoes, cabbage, peppers, zucchini, summer squash,onions and carrots. He got a late start because of all the rain, so we won't be harvesting any veggies for a couple more weeks. He's the one with the green thumb...not thumb's black, lol!
    Thanks for showing us your garden, Joan!
