It seemed like it would never get here.
Finally..time to put in the garden!! Our suburban homestead is a joint effort between my parents (who live next door) and us. We'd never get as much done without their help...and encouragement! They love it all as much as we do. It is so much fun to learn from them and share everything together.
Box of string (mom picked up for free from flea market leftovers) that we use to tie up tomatoes
Heirloom tomato plants started by my mom. The seeds are from her childhood friend. His family has kept this breed of tomato going since the late 1800's.
The garden this morning after planting. So far we've put in:
10 lbs. Pontiac Red potatoes
15 lbs. Katadin potatoes
Snap Pole Beans
Oregano, Basil, Parsley, and Sage
Detroit Dark Red Beets
Short and Sweet Carrots
Sugar Pea Pods
Bush Blue Lake Beans
Goldmine Yellow Bush Beans
Sugar Daddy Peas
Pink Beauty Radish
Tomatoes: Sweet million, Viva Italian, Early Girl, Amish Paste
...we still need to put in some corn.
Wishing you all a most wonderful holiday weekend! I'll be back next week.. Happy planting!!
