Come again another day.
Little Johnny wants to play;
Rain, rain, go to Spain,
Never show your face again!
- 40 tomato plants: that includes 4 cherry and quite a few roma type of tomatoes
- lettuce, kale and spinach ( in 3 places, I will probably succession plant this so we have enough for fresh eating and dehydrating)
- 6 zucchini plants and 5 yellow squash plants
- carrots, radishes, beets, turnips and rutabegas
- 5 hills of regular cukes and 3 hills of lemon cukes
- cinnamon basil, and 8 other kinds of herbs in one garden, five more in the other one.
- black beans (Cherokee Nation) and jacob’s cattle beans (this is seed saved from last years bumper crops). All are grown in a relatively small area as the black beans go up and the cattle beans are bush beans.
- watermelon, pumpkins, and squash (acorn, butternut, delicata, and blue hubbard)
- 3 different kinds of hot peppers–banana, jalepeno and chili peppers (and ancho)
- eggplant (4)
- green beans and yellow wax beans (LOTS)
- green, yellow and orange sweet peppers, all grown from seeds
- ground cherries and 3 other kinds of berry bushes that got put in this year
- raspberries, and strawberries (in 3 different places since we dont have the keyhole garden built yet)
- and we STILL have to put in the micro orchard with two apples, pears, a peach and a plum tree. It’ll get done. eventually. 🙂
Â Â So what are you doing this year for a new crop? The okra was the first thing I really had as a fail ever in the five years I have been adding new things in. I just dont think it gets hot enough long enough up here in MN. But boy, was that stuff really growing there for a while! I was kinda bummed since my youngest sister was really excited about having some home-grown okra when she visited, but I guess she understands I can only do so much. 🙂
