How does your garden grow?
I've seen a lot of activity this spring on growing a garden, and a lot of folks were planning on trying it. So I was wondering, now that summer is
here, how did it go? Or how is it going?
I got a late start on mine, and the deer are being their usual pesky selves. My green peas are all but gone, just little shoots that get gnawed back
every time they try to grow a leaf. I'm setting up an electric fence now to take care of that little problem.
Yellow squash and cucumbers are growing like mad, and should be blooming soon. We're going to have enough okra to feed the entire county, apparently,
and the prettiest crop of pinto beans you ever saw are well on their way to fruition.
The new heirloom corn I found is coming up good, about a foot tall now, and the blackeyed peas mixed in it are doing fine as well. The tomatos had a
rough time when we transplanted them, but they have survived and are growing again. Not so good with the onions, but some did survive the shock.
Watermelons are coming up and starting to run, and we have a nice crop of carrots poking through the soil. Anyone else want to give an update?
