My Garden is Growing!
Thanks to some help from my parents and kids, I finally have most of the garden in now. It has been soooo rainy here that I thought I’d never get the planting done.
A fun, unexpected surprise were these two new square foot boxes. Last year I just tried to grow things in the ground, but the weeds were out of control and there were water drainage issues. My dad came and helped me set them up. I’ve got Big Boy tomatoes and green peppers in one box.
In the second box I have some jalapenos and Roma tomatoes.
My two gardens in the backyard are planted too. I’ve got more tomatoes growing in the left-side garden along with some herbs.
I’ve got lots of bean plants growing in the other box. Oh and if you look carefully there are also some squash plants growing right along with the beans. I didn’t plan that. I guess I threw a squash in my compost pile last year and when the compost was mixed in with the soil for this year, there were some left-over squash seeds. I’m letting them grow for now. We’ll see what happens :)
I am hoping to make some salsa and marinara sauce this year. Does anyone have any good recipes?
