We decided it was high time to start a garden. So we did! I'll have to post some pictures when I get out to our plot tomorrow to finish up.
We started from ground zero in the empty lot that belongs to my husband's grandma. We have two spots measured out with stakes driven in the corners and string tied to measure off the rows and spaces in between.
We're planting bell peppers, tomatoes, straightneck squash, and zucchini in the big plot, and in the smaller plot we're going to plant our pumpkins and watermelon, planting the latter farther away from the squash since we've heard the two cross pollinate and taste funny.
All that's left to do is to dig out the furrows so we don't wash out our plants when we flood with the canal pump, and actually plant the seeds and seedlings. It's going to be so awesome.
Here's to a bountiful harvest come fall! Wish us luck!
