The Garden is just down the street from us so its really convenient. There are always characters there tending to their plots. Its a really nice initiative and I hope it succeeds. The garden got off to a late start this season so I planted the following from plant, not seed, in my plot:
- Finger Peppers
Our home garden is in the ground already too. This year, I decided to step it up and not half ass it. And by 'step it up' I mean, ask people that know what they're doing how they do it. So I embarked on an intense emailing marathon with Jess's dad (don't be jealous that I was granted "Rob" privileges.) He's given me great trade secrets for our expanded garden this year.
This is what we planted from seed.
- Summer squash
- Cucumber (Armenian and Sugar Crunch)
- Green Beans (Italian and Roma)
- Snap Peas
- Lettuce (leaf and arugula)
- Cilantro *
- Chives *
* These crops didn't take this year. We'll try again next year.
This is what we planted from plants:
- Hot peppers
- Tomatoes (Vine and Cherry)
The hydrangea monstrosity is in full bloom. Please come and cut some flowers. Give them to your mom, she'll love them.
