Still no vegetable garden
Well, our vegetable garden has yet to be started. We cleaned out all the grass and weeds that had made their homes back there but never even started our seedlings. I think we will be heading out this month to get some plants form a local nursery. We will be keeping it simple back there this year. We definitely learned from our mistakes last year. I think the biggest lesson was not to plant too much of anything. Last year we had way too many zucchini and butternut squash plants... they squash literally overran our garden and made their way into our pool area. Only 1-2 zucchini and butternut squash plant for a family of four... unless you eat your weight in zucchini. We are too late for peas but most other things we should still be able to get going. We are going to directly sow our lettuce, carrots, and beets. We will buy tomato, cucumber, zucchini and maybe some pepper plants. Once we get out to the nurseries we will see what they have and what looks nice. Hopefully we can get it going this Sunday. ANY later and we may not be able to have much.
