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.
