Garden: attempt 2


We planted our entire garden about three weeks ago-- you know, before it decided to freeze and snow randomly last week. Our cold-weather stuff survived, but pretty much everything else bit the bullet. Just the other day my dad told me, "If the Lord wanted me to plant a garden he wouldn't freeze it every year." Well said.

I went out and re-bought my tomatoes, some of my peppers, and squash. I bought the biggest plants they had and we replanted everything Monday. We had such great success last year that I have high hopes this time.

The goods:
Pumpkin
Cantelope
Potatoes: red and Yukon gold
Walla Walla onions
green onions
green beans
Lettuce
Spinach
Tomatoes: Roma, cherry, better boy, whopper, beefsteak, jetstar
Tomatillo
Bell peppers: green/red, yellow
Jalepeno peppers
zucchini
sunflower

Let's hope our hard work pays off!

P.S. I realize our rows are built up really high and they look kinda funny, but we did it on purpose because we had problems with bedrock in a few areas last year

You're a trooper. Luckily, my garden was all seed, so I think it survived the snowstorm. My radishes did. That might be all I get this year....but girl, I ain't replanting! I'll just have to come get yummy stuff from your garden!
