I am so excited. It is almost time to get the summer plants in the ground. On Tuesday Nicole and I did our annual plant shopping"). We both felt like kids let lose in a candy store. This is one of our favorite times of year. We have a wonderful local greenhouse that starts vegetable plants and so many beautiful flowers. Nicole gets both flowers and vegetables. I usually just get vegetables but I may go back and get some flowers. I think I can hang a couple of long pots on our cross fencing out front:):)
Here are some local pics of our Garden Greenhouse…..
One small table of veggies:
Oh Happy Day…Nicole and I with only one of each of our boxes. We both bought two:)
Leaving my plants outside to get them used to being out. I will put them out a few hours a day until planting time. Hopefully Nicole and I can start planting late next week:)
Most likely I bought too many plants but I will get them in the ground somewhere, lol. I bought 12 of Mike's favorite Super sweet 100's, 4 Golden Jubilee tomatoes, and 4 Celebrity tomatoes. As for peppers I got 4 Red Beauty and 4 Lady Bell. Then I got 2 cantaloupe, 2 Sugar baby watermelon, 2 straight neck squash, 2 zucchini, 6 very healthy cucumber plants and a basil and one purple basil. I really hope I don't kill the basil like I usually do. Ugh!!! I also bought 6 Marigold to grow with the tomatoes and peppers and also one Sunflower to use as a trellis for one of my cuke plants.
Now for my gardens so far. I have my old square foot garden and also a new in ground garden.
My square foot garden. I cheated and bought 4 Romaine plants and 4 Purple Romaine plants. I just wanted to see something grow, lol.
Onions, lettuce, spinach and beets that have not sprouted yet:
Peas and strawberries are looking good:
My Fruit Trees…that the deer nibbled on over the winter…grr!!!
And my in ground garden. I will be working on the fencing today.
That's all for the gardening update. This is my favorite time of year:):)
Have a great weekend and I will post on Monday.
