Here’s the view of my garden as of last weekend. I’ve planted some flowers since then, but you get the idea.
About a month ago my dad and I built the fence around it to keep out critters and my dog. Oscar thought it was fun to lie in the middle of the warm dirt before I planted anything.
In my first bed I have corn, eggplant and a jalapeno pepper plant. My corn doesn’t seem to be doing wonderfully, but I’m hoping over half of the plants will make it. Next year I will plant many more seeds so I have more plants to choose from.
In the middle bed I have zucchini, a different kind of eggplant and an orange bell pepper. Sean and I found a local farm/farmers market that we bought the peppers, big zucchini (in next picture) and 2 tomatoes from. The rest of plants, except for 3 cucumbers are from seeds I bought. After learning the about this farm I don’t think I will plant many plants from seed next year. After calculating the money I spent growing my plants from seeds, for most things I can spend less money buying a young plant that is already well established.
Here’s the rest of the garden. The big zucchini, cucumbers and tomatoes in the pots. I have also paired up the tomatoes with different types of basil to help keep away some pests. I’m having fun with the garden and I am definitely learning a lot. Hopefully I can keep it alive through the hot summer months to come.
