My Garden Update

This year I have had to take the attitude of..."whatever happens, happens...when it comes to my garden.  My knee has prevented me from doing weekend gardening marathons.  I can usually putt around the yard for an hour or two but then I start to feel the ache in my knee.  I am getting quite creative in how I kneel down to plant...I just hope no one can see me because I am sure I look a bit foolish.

Today I planted some seeds that should have been put in the ground a couple of weeks ago...but again...whatever happens, happens!  Here is what I did:

Here is what I planted...another row of spinach ( I LOVE this spinach), corn (decorative), lettuce (I LOVE this particular lettuce blend as well), 1 row of carrots (by my broccoli), and some beets.

This bed has my garlic, onions, 5 strawberry plants, 3 blueberry plants,
spinach, lettuce, radishes and some peas.

This bed has a few more onions, a couple of miniature red pepper plants, broccoli, corn (decorative), beets and I planted some more lettuce and spinach behind the artichoke plant.

An entire bed of tomatoes ~ I started these all from seed.  I am curious to see how these do.  This location does not get a lot of sun though it gets lots of heat.  Our trailer is parked right along the side this bed so it blocks the sun.  I am crossing my fingers that I get tomatoes.

This smaller bed is FULL of pumpkins and gourds.  In the center is a giant pumpkin plant and surrounding that are mini pumpkins and gourds.  I am sure these will all cross-contaminate so this is an experimental planting!
