Adam decided to leave it at 13 rows for this year rather than the 25 that we marked off. Issues with the rototiller and rain caused a hold up and then Adam decided that 13 rows was good enough for the first year. Now we just need to see some pumpkins!
They are coming along nicely! The rows we planted about a week and a half ago. Look at the cute little pumpkin plants. Uh oh! Amy....what is this???
The view of the "little" garden
Last weekend I decided to take on the task of weeding the little garden. I easily weeded the cucumbers and the corn because it was obvious what the weeds were and what the plants were. Then came the onions and carrots....I didn't know what an onion or carrot looked like and there was no obvious pattern. So I jumped in and started weeding what I KNEW were weeds. If I had pulled it elsewhere in the garden, I pulled it there. Then Amy came over with her horticulture experience (she is a horticulture major in college don'tcha know?) and pointed out the carrots and the onions so I could continue weeding the garden. Thanks Amy!
And for those of you that have previously heard me say "I will NEVER have a garden and I will NEVER EVER weed", yes, I am eating my words. But it is so fun to see things grow!
The onion plants....few and far between. They aren't our most sucessful crop!
