Mary, Mary, quite contrary....
How does your garden grow? We decided we would go ahead and give square foot gardening a try this past fall and planted a winter garden. We had done row gardening before and had never been very successful at it. This square foot gardening thing is a BREEZE! Especially when you have your cousin install a drip system to the garden. We never had to water it or weed it or do anything. Just go out and pick what we want to eat. Carrots? Yum! Different varieties of lettuce? Super yum! (And part of my daily lunch). Onions and peas and tomatos and oregano and mint and all kinds of yummy stuff. Savannah and her cousin were out playing the other day...stopping to pick a snack out of the garden whenever they got hungry...and ran in to show me the "heart carrot" they found. Cute, huh? Of course, they wanted a few pictures....and I'm not one to say no to pictures :)
And I'm loving that all of our trees have bloomed and are starting to grow baby fruit! Some oranges (didn't take pictures of the grapefruit, lemon, or tangerine baby fruits)...
This past weekend we planted some more yummy stuff (to some of the stuff we planted a month ago)....lots of strawberries, two artichoke plants, more onions, bell peppers, watermelon, pumpkins. Can't wait for all of that squash to start producing. I love squash!
Apricots! We don't have any baby plums or pears....YET!
