Spring Garden Update…

So how did our garden grow?

Seedlings start to emerge,

Fresh peas were the first crop to thrive,

Then things started to take off,garden3

With squash and potatoes overtaking the garden,garden4

This monster made a very nice risotto,garden5

And the potatoes were yummy roasted with zucchini and sausage,garden6

Time to start all over again, with beans, peas and lettuce in our Fall garden.garden7

All in all, our first garden attempt was a huge success. We had lettuce for salads, plenty of squash, peas, potatoes and tomatoes. The spring planting of bush beans were trampled by the squash plants but should do much better this Fall with no neighbors to smash them into the ground. Spinach and pumpkins died before anything could be harvested. Watermelon, peppers and eggplant are holding on so fingers crossed. Learned a lot this Spring/Summer and can’t wait for an even larger garden next Spring.

Spring is here…

Finally, Spring appears to finally be moving in, I can only hope it sticks around for a couple weeks before Summer pushes it out.

With Spring comes new projects around the house. The biggest being we are tackling a garden. The kids are super excited and we’ve spent the last couple days setting up some raised beds and getting our strawberry and blueberry plants transplanted.

April02Garden April02GardenGirlsSpinach, peas, brussel sprouts and a couple other seedlings will be making their way into the newly built beds later this week. We’ll be adding a couple more beds this weekend hopefully so we’ll have room for everything plus the beans, cucumbers and squash that will go in early May!

Fingers crossed that between me and the girls one of us has a green thumb!
