It's planting season! Paul was kind enough to till the garden a few times, so I was able to stock up on all the goodies I want to plant this year. Yes, I'm excited. First, I started these seeds - lettuce, tomatoes, spearmint, cilantro, jalapenos, rosemary and green peppers.
Then I planted two blueberry bushes, rhubarb, and asparagus. The latter two I planted last year, but they didn't take. So I'm trying again, in a new location. I thought I was in pretty good shape with all the running and weights I do, until I had to dig that stupid trench to plant the asparagus.
And finally, I picked up beets, garden beans, sweet corn, peas, summer squash, and zucchini. I'll plant the peas once Paul tills the garden once more. The others I'll plant in late March, directly in the garden. This will be our first year trying to grow corn. I've heard a lot of horror stories about it, but my boys just adore corn. So we're going to give it a shot.
