Flowers, Veggies, Fruit, and More
I know that posting about my flowers, and garden may seem kind of boring. But this is part of what we have been so busy with!
We have got our flower pots in and our front bed all done. It was fun picking out flowers and letting the kids help!
Our garden took us two days to finish. I thought we could bust it out in one day but the 100+ weather made us all a little sluggish! HA!
Our raised beds consists of : (1st bed) Green peppers, Red Peppers, jalapeño peppers, and a variety of different kinds. (2nd bed) Juicy fat boy tomato's, cherry tomato's, Roma tomato's, and also a variety of others. (3rd bed) Peas, onions, green beans, and yellow beans. (4th bed) This bed has carrots, spinach, spring mix lettuce, and another kind of onion. ~ I hope it all turns out!!
The bigger section of the garden has:
~Crookneck Squash, Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Two varieties of pumpkins, banana squash, yellow squash, zucchini, corn, and two other things I can't remember! I thought that we would have left over room, but we had a hard time fitting all of that in there. We ended up planting our strawberries in hanging baskets because of lack of space!!
We are hoping for lots of harvest so we can make fresh salsa, can lots of things, and enjoy fresh fruit! Yummy....we can't wait!!
