So amongst all this craziness, I actually did manage to plant a garden this spring! I didn't plant one in the fall and it killed me. Every time I looked out into the backyard, empty beds stared back at me and it pissed me off! I just didn't have time. I was lucky enough to get several heads of volunteer lettuce sprout up, so that made me a little happier!
I was really hoping to tear out the beds in late winter, rearrange some things and have this wonderful new garden set up by March, but yeah right! Between basketball practices and games, science fair prep and everything else, I didn't even manage to weed the damn beds! Hello!
So when the time came I had just a smidge of work to do! I finally cleaned everything out and was ready to plant.
Within about a month, we had progress! Tomatoes and tomatillos.
Bed 1: Clemson okra and Japanese eggplant
Bed 3: Tomatoes and tomatillos.
And last but not least, Bed 4: Emerald green okra and black-eyed peas!
