Planting Day

04 Jun

This day came at least a month after we had hoped but, at least it came. Today we were finally able to get plants in the ground. The kids were a big help and didn’t complain TOO much. We planted 4 varieties of tomatoes and peppers, cucumbers, carrots, potatoes, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, beans, peas, melons, and basil. We used the flower beds around the house for lettuce, spinach, and squash.

As usual I totally underestimated the amount of time it would take to construct the hoop house and get plants in. At least we’ll get some benefit from it at the end of the season. I still have some odds and ends to finish up but it’s functional, Yeah!!!
