Supposedly we had our last freeze on Tuesday, so we spent the last couple of days planting.
It seemed like a good collection of plants in the back of the car, but somehow seems quite puny when placed next to the garden space.
We planted the rows wide enough for Hubba's chair to pass through so he can weed and harvest when I'm out of town.
We started with soaker hoses, but the water pressure ran out about half-way through the second hose. So we took them out and opted for an old-fashioned broadcast waterer.
With the exception of tomatoes, we have only one or two plants of each variety so we don't have too much to eat as the plants ripen. Which means we have a long list of what was planted.
- Zucchini, Black Beauty
- Yellow Straightneck
- Green Chile
- Sweet Corn, Peaches & Cream
- Beets, Ruby Queen
- Carrots, Cosmic Purple, Lunar White, Solar Yellow, Atomic Red and Scarlet Nantes
- Butternut Squash, Waltham
- Pear, Parker and D'Anjou
- Peach, Reliance
- Plum, Mount Royal and Pipestone
- Cherry, Montmorency
