So here we are again, June 8, with the garden completely planted.....almost.
Yesterday it was 33 degrees on my front porch! 33! Brrrrr. But we got out there and finished up the planting after the soil warmed up a bit. We just have a couple more rows of potatoes to put in and several miscellaneous things like Brussels sprouts, a few more cabbage and some cauliflower plants. The bulk of these staples have already found their place in the garden. I just have a few left over plants to find space for. The garden always starts off looking nice and neat with smart, clean rows. But ends up looking like a smorgasbord because I'm forever tucking extra plantlings here and there. (Example: not enough celery to make a row? that's OK.....just plop a pepper plant in there....)
Anywhoo- the bulk of the garden is done. It just has to stop raining so that the sun and warmth can work it's magic.
