I have to be honest, I was a little worried about the future of my veggie garden after the Sickness of 2008. I was laid up from mid-April to mid-May, which is usually when I do all my spring pruning and garden preparations for planting. Not that I’ve done this a million times, but this was to be the first year of my full fledged garden after last year’s trial run of tomatoes and green beans.
But well-timed sunny weekends gave me the opportunity to till under the dirt (last week) and plant these lovely seeds (today). I’ll plant another set of these rows in a week or two to stagger the harvest. I also planted two groups of pumpkin seeds, and three groups of zucchini seeds.
I was going to plant corn, but I need the entire garden space to fit all the rows in, so maybe I’ll do that next year.
