A week or so ago, we finally got Dave’s parents’ garden planted!!!!
Dave and I have tried gardening a couple times at our measly duplex, and also grew a small herb garden from our apartment deck a few years ago. I really have loved it, even though I barely keep th
ings alive. I am not good at watering and of course, no water = dead plants. Well what do ya do?
You plant with family!!!!! This year, Dave’s Dad really kinda let us decide what was planted, and needless to say we have quite the assortment! My in laws have a huge garden plot and then another smaller one on the other side of the yard. The soil is rich, and this year, even better, as we’ve been doing a little composting! Last year we threw the rotting pumpkins(among other things) out in the garden. A few weeks ago Dave and his went out to look where we should plant what and realized there were a few seedlings that were NOT weeds! It was so exciting!!!!!! I took on the job of transplanting them and while digging them up, I saw that more than a few were pumpkin plants, surely from the rotten pumpkins! So, the girls and I moved about 15 little plants across the yard into a plot we’ve decided will be just vine plants. Hopefully we’ll get some pumpkins this year!
Dave and I had fun going together with the girls to get quite a few plants and seeds. Dale got the rest of the stuff- as anyone knows, no way in hell would I spend money on habanero peppers!!!!!!!
We’ve also planted a myriad of other things. Here’s the list!
Tomatoes- a few different types
Grape tomatoes- green and red
Habanero peppers-two different varieties
Potatoes- russet and red-skin
Squash- two different types of Italian yellow
Pretty impressive eh? Don’t lie, its easy to be jealous, and it will be pretty much inevitable when we’re harvesting all this goodness in a couple months! I’m STOKED!
