It is that time of the year again. I have been working steady in my garden trying to get it ready for planting. The tiller I have is a front tine tiller. Anybody who has ever tilled a garden knows how those will just beat you to death! My small garden is 6 feet by 20 feet. I have it is tilled now after hauling several heavy wheelbarrels full of composted horse poop and have already planted in it. I have tomato plants, lettuce, and brussel sprouts already in it. I am looking for some pepper plants to get in it too. I am not sure of what else I will put in it. LOL I just follow my whims there.
The big garden is about 50 feet by 100 feet. I am not really sure. I have never measured it. It takes a lot of tilling to get it done. Long hours of work involved in getting this garden ready. I have my corn planted now. I got it in Tuesday evening. I planted Silver Queen, a white sweet corn. I have pole beans, Kentucky Wonder, and Silver eye crowder peas to plant. I also have watermelon, squash and okra to put I can't wait to eat some fresh produce! LOL To make Pat happy I will plant some pumpkins. They never do good for me though.
It rained yesterday. A much needed rain but I sure do wish it had waited until my beans were in. I am glad the corn was in. Rain is much better for the garden than tap water!
That is it for now. Don't forget to pray for Donna's husband Cliff. He is in surgery right now.
