I am truly amazed at gardens.... that it can go from this...(note: please ignore the weeds.... )
in just a few weeks.
On the days it hasn't rained, I've been pretty faithful to water.
I heard a seasoned vegetable gardener say "it's going to be a great year for potatoes!" I can't wait. Even though this is my first year of a big garden, I already know a few of my mistakes.
18 pumpkin seeds = 18 pumpkin plants = 1 big mess of pumpkin vines. Why didn't I read a little more on this before I planted?
Not NEARLY enough onions. We could eat these things every day. And we do. Therefore, I am not sure how many of them are going to make it to maturity. So, a couple days ago, I planted more... just in case.
Corn takes up a bit of space. And 1 stalk = 1 ear of corn. We might get enough for 3 meals if we're lucky. AND... when large winds come, this is what happens to corn.
The plants on the left are some sunflowers badly in need of thinning.
However, I don't know... but, words can't express how much fun it is to garden. It has quickly become one of our favorite places to sit.
And my girls think I am absolutely nuts... but I'm loving the few little statues I have there already. One of them was given to me by my dear friend Mary for my birthday. It kind of represents our lives... sometimes I hold her up and sometimes she holds me up (okay, pay no attention to the fact that one of them is a boy)
And come on girls... it doesn't get any sexier than this...
