After shopping around for our fruits and veggies on Friday, it was time to get to planting. Thankfully, it was the most gorgeous weekend outside you could imagine. I even got my first farmer’s tan of the season.
I was told I will never be a farmer if I decide to sleep in so late.
Shiner also helped supervise, which includes barking like mad when we refuse to turn the hose on him. That dog loves water like crazy.
We planted our veggies toward the front of the garden so that our strawberries do not get spicy from the jalapenos. Though that would be interesting. From front to back, our garden includes:
- Three kinds of tomatoes (Roma, Bonnie and Beefstake)
- Green bell pepper
- Crookneck yellow squash
The pots up front include two pots of cilantro and one pot of peppermint. Aren’t these gorgeous? The pots were given to me by my godmother when I lived in San Diego.
We doused the plants in water (while Shiner jealously barked) and now that it has rained almost every day since, that sad looking bit of cilantro there is now standing completely upright and full.
Beautiful. Have I mentioned that I cannot wait to eat everything here? I’ve got big plans for that mint, which may include iced tea. And those zucchini? I’m eying you up there zucchini fritters. Delish!
