Gardening

Well, last year I tried planting carrots and got nothing. This year I have a very pretty carrot patch and am hoping that we'll actually get real carrots. Here's what I have so far (I was thinning them out a bit)
















Pretty impressive, huh?

Well, not really....but they're getting there. :)
















Actually my garden is doing pretty good. Tonight we had, from our very own little garden, fresh peas and a green salad made up of rainbow swiss chard (to match the rainbow carrots I guess) and lettuce. Delicious! And I have lots of green tomatoes and blossoms on my squash plants. Yay!! The red onions are looking pretty good too!!

As prices are jumping on everything, I am constantly trying to think of ways to save money or at least stretch it a little further. Hoping this garden will help out a lot! Next year we're planning a much bigger garden, so that should be fun too!

Gardens are fantastic. I really wanted to plant a decent sized garden, but our dogs have proven that can't handle it at this time...ugh...So I have tomatoes in pots in the front yard, a row of corn alongside the house, carrots in a huge wooden box (I hope they like it) and herbs on my front porch. That's all I can do and hope for this year...I hope yours produces well!
