Garden planning takes place in the dead of winter,
so my ordering may have gone overboard as I longed for spring.
In no time, I filled the 30ft x 40ft plot Dave prepared for me and had quite a few seeds left over.
We also wanted space to grow lots of pumpkins for the pigs, so we had a 650ft x 6ft strip tilled along the top edge of one of our pastures.
Today we planted it.
Dave used the tiller to help in some spots and got out his seeder for the carrots and beans.
The kids picked up a load of rocks,
and stopped to peek in the bird house they made a couple of years ago.
In the strip we planted
corn–pop and sweet
beans–KY Wonder and Blue Lake
cucumbers–pickling and gherkin
flowers–chrysanthemums, zinnias, calendula
Tomorrow we finish up with about 200ft of pumpkins.
