Planted today!

It's not pretty...but it's ours. Today, the family planted:

  • 6 bush pickle (not likely I will pickle them, we like them raw)
  • 3 cucumber
  • 2 cherry tomato
  • 2 pear tomato
  • 2 heirloom tomato
  • 2 bell pepper
  • 4 purple cauliflower (my first time with cauliflower)
  • snap peas
  • green beans (took seeds from last year's pods - not sure about this...)
  • rosemary
  • parsley (organic seeds)
  • basil (organic seeds)
  • Raspberries are getting their blooms.

It might be too late for some of this stuff. Especially the snap peas & cauliflower. Fingers crossed! Let me know if you have any purple cauliflower tips - I could use them. I think they can get wormy? I have no idea.

I used lots of hay and mulch in the garden this year, hopefully it will help with our annual major weed issue.

I then promptly took Advil. It's my gardening secret - always strike preemptively.

Here's my pretending-to-be-a farmer-but-sooo-not self-portrait. My friend Kenny commented the image of me with a pitchfork would be an interesting one to Kenny - this one's for you.
My Key West, FL straw hat has been repurposed.
