Six months of gardening

It's hard to believe that it has been more than six months since our garden spot was tilled into fluffy powder. L began planning early in the year. Late March, during a warm dry spell the deed was done. Plants and seeds went into the soil in short order only to be frozen soon after in an unusually late freeze.

New tomato and pepper plants replaced the dead ones that stuck out of the ground like black frost bitten fingers. Beds of lettuce, kale, corn, and carrots were replanted as well as hills of Zucchini, Cucumber, Cantaloupe, and Watermelon.

L, with the help of C spent tireless hours keeping the weeds under control and watering the fledgling plants.

By early July, the garden was flourishing due to their TLC and we had more than our share of Zucchini and Cucumbers.

Later July brought Tomatoes (Early Girl, Beef Steak, Rutgers, Roma), Swiss Chard, Cayenne Peppers, and the first Okra.

Early lettuce gave way to bell peppers, cantaloupe, and watermelon.

Flowers in the collage above; left to right, top to bottom are:
  • Sunflower with Honey Bees
  • Cosmos
  • Okra
  • Gladiolus
