This morning Shan and I got up very early, ran up the hill (in the truck, we didn’t literally run. 😉 ) to watch the sunrise, and then went to the garden. We desperately needed to get the peas in the ground.
We had a little bit of work to do, but we were able to get enough space cleared to get them in.
We planted two types. One needs trellising and the other does not.
We are putting both cardboard and straw down to keep the weeds at bay.
There are other parts of the garden that are growing.
Shan’s strawberries are doing well, even though they did get mowed over. We are transplanting them into a raised bed, so I’m hoping they will continue to do well.
The lettuce is also doing well, even though it was mowed over as well.
Not only were we able to get the peas in, we also put in two rows of green beans.
There is still much to do.
The rest of the garden area above will be filled with okra, onions, radishes, eggplant, cucumbers, and I will be planting the three sisters: corn, pole beans and squash. The other garden will have the strawberries and melons. We will container the tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, potatoes, and some small squash. I also have lettuce, arugula, and spinach in a container.
I cannot wait until I am able to get some fresh garden produce!
