Between the rain and work schedules and other obligations we finally were able to get the garden in last Saturday. It was so hot! But I am so glad that we were able to get everything done.
We were lucky to have Bobby B.’s help for an hour or so. Together we hoed and planted six rows of corn. We do have some more to plant in about another week to stagger our produce a bit. When the first of the corn is done, we are going to try to plant some winter squash…we kind of ran out of room.
In the mean time, Scott was tilling the other side of the garden for our mass planting.
Guess what we’ll be picking in a few weeks?
Here’s our beautiful strawberry patch. You wouldn’t believe all the runners it is producing already this year! The best thing is we have a mix of June bearing (which only produce once in June) and Ever bearing (which will produce throughout the summer). I can’t wait to taste these!!

After this, we planted and sowed and planted and planted some more and sowed again. We put in watermelon, cantaloupe, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, green beans, cucumbers, pumpkins, eggplant, bell peppers, banana peppers, hot peppers, sweet potatoes, corn, radishes, carrots and tomatoes.
Here’s a look at the potatoes and some of the peas.
