Mary Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow?
This year when we decided to plant a garden Mollie said we should do a better job of keeping the weeds out and making it look nice, so we have been going out as a family each weekend and spending less than an hour to keep it hoed and tilled. Most weeks its just Hannah and Mollie but this week it was all of us girls. It looks so nice freshly hoed and weeded. So far we have lettuce radishes, romaine lettuce, potatoes, lots of tomatoes, green peppers, jalapeno peppers, red peppers, cucumbers, zucchini, yellow squash, beets, and some pretty morning glories around a pole. Tomorrow Mollie said she would help me plant the okra and carrots and then we should be done planting until the fall garden. Apparently I am more than a month behind on planting the garden, some folks around here are already harvesting zucchini. Next year I will know better.
