So this planting season I decided to use only half of the garden space available. I’m thinking this will give me a better chance of keeping everything alive. I’m pretty new at this and I found the last planting season a little overwhelming.
The four center rows are corn. I know I’m kind of putting a lot of eggs in one basket by filling it with corn but I really, really want some corn! Last year the seeds came up fine but then the birds kept pulling them up. Then I planted more but it was just too late and I did not give them enough water. This is is my 2nd try and I have wised up a little and covered all the rows with netting. Take that birds! Now I just have to be sure that I “feed” the corn on occasion.
I’m particularly proud of these tomato plants because my father-in-law and I started them from seed and then I transplanted them a few weeks ago. They have easily tripled in size and they love the speckled shade. I hope they taste good!
Jeff built some shade for me on the North side of the garden where I planted a rose bush that was just getting too much sun. In hindsight I should have planted it on the South side but now I have a bunch of shade that I can grow other stuff under.
Here is a close up of that rose bush and one of our 3 black and white chickens we have named BW1, BW2 & BW3.
It’s pretty fun to see everything growing again and I will try to take some pics at the end of the season.
ps, here is the video Grandma Albert requested…
