I'm happy to report that we finally got our vegetable garden planted this year! A little late start, but we got the garden all cleaned up, and the tomato seeds I planted were growing taller and were ready to finally plant.
The vegetables Trent planted were even ready, for the most part. Some of the jalapeños hadn't sprouted yet, but the others were growing like weeds.
Trent went over the garden area one more time with the tiller before we planted, just to make sure all of the dirt was nice and loose.
It's a pretty big space, and we took up the entire area this year. We definitely have a lot of plants!
Trent did the planting, so I handed him the plants, and snapped the photos (and supervised, as always). :) He did a pretty good job, though.
Our plants are still pretty puny, but hopefully they'll get a little bigger and get more substantial, so they can hold their own against the weeds that seem to always take over. We're determined to keep them in better check this year. I guarantee we'll be out there often checking on them and keeping them well-watered!
We only planted maybe 1/3 of the tomato plants. We'll have to figure out what to do with the others. We had way too many! We do need to buy a few new tomato cages, though. The cages we do have, have seen better days...
Besides a few different varieties of tomatoes, we also planted cucumbers, butternut squash, peppers, corn, potatoes, and watermelon.
And now, we play the waiting game and get ready for some yummy veggies! Even if our garden does look the usual completely sad next to our neighbors'. :)
Hey, it's not a contest, right?! More yard work adventures to come...
