Spring Garden

The weather here has been really good, it was 56 deg here this morning but it has made for a slow start to the garden. I am not complaining however, I really like the cool mornings and evenings.

The garden has been in for about a month and with the recent rain needed tending.

 Squash are starting to form.

              Also tomatoes.

 Here is some squash and zucchini plants. The corn is a little slow for some reason.
This was a new trick for me. I had always planted bush beans as poles were a pain to set up. A friend of mine used a section of chain-link wire so I decided to give it a whirl. Seems to be working good.


  1. Duke,

    I love your garden, it's really doing good for being in the ground 1 month. Yesterday was our official planting day because of the weather being to cold here. I still need to get my beans in too. I may use the fence idea.

  2. Thanks Sandy, The fence does seem to work well, mine is 4' tall but 6' might be better.

    1. Having grown up eating 'garden fresh' foods, I truly miss those days... And there is, at least to me, closure with a garden; in that you put the work in, get to see it progress, and EAT the stuff... :-)

  4. It is a lot of work but the fresh food is good and can't be beat.
