Gardening

Photobucket

Well, with the help of the boys I finished putting in the garden this year. It was harder than normal because we had to turn over the grass in the front yard as there was nothing there but lawn. The boys did the majority of it by hand and did a great job.

Of course, now I'm hoping we get no more frosty nights. Tomorrow night is supposed to be about 38, but I hate waiting until after Memorial Day.

Between the front and back garden, I have:

Lettuce
Spinach
Red & Green cabbage
Watermelon
Cantaloupe
Summer squash
Sunflowers
Eggplant
2 kinds of tomatoes (Plum & Beefsteak)
2 kinds of peppers (Bell & Jalapeno)
Beans
Cucumbers
Onions
Carrots
Radishes

I still need to put in the herbs in the little patch by the front door. I do have 4 basil plants and a pot of mint there.

Here are the herbs I'm planting:

Sage
Dill
Oregano
Chives
Parsley
Basil
Cilantro

Hopefully, we will have a good harvest this year. It is so rewarding to be able to harvest vegetables from the garden and eat them all throughout the year.
