My Garden is Planted!

My garden took two days to plant, but it's done! Hubby tilled all 3600 square feet with the walk-behind tiller--our tractor needs a new clutch, so the PTO-driven tiller was a no go. Son helped make rows. They were much straighter than my rows usually end up. We planted corn, green beans, potatoes, yellow onions, green onions, leeks, beets, carrots, spinach, lettuce, pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers, four kinds of squash, two kinds of melons, and eggplant. New this year are broccoli, cauliflower, celery, and a peanut plant. Yes, a peanut plant. We only put in five tomato plants since we have lots of tomato puree, soup, salsa, and barbecue sauce left from the last couple years. That left space to try something completely different. Hopefully the weeds won't see this as an invitation...

Watch for posts on how to use all those fresh vegetables as harvest time nears! Happy gardening!
