The Gardens are In!

Just a quick post to share the vegetable gardens we got planted last week.  When they start getting some growth on them I will share again.  We started out with these flats of tomatoes, peppers and other vegetable plants along with green bean, radish, beets, pumpkin, zucchini seeds and potato sets.

This is what we call our salsa garden we plant all of our tomatoes and hot and bell peppers here.
 This garden has our rhubarb, rows of raspberries and we are trying green beans in the same area this year because we had a very bad year where we had been rotating them last year.
The wood worker after all the salsa garden was planted.
A lot of tomato cages!
 This is the gate and garden bench the wood worker built last year for our new raised beds.
 The following is our back garden that has not been doing great the past couple of years.  Even though we have been amending it the sandy soil has been working against us here.  We have put the radishes, beets, potatoes and the vining plants in this area and hope that they take off well.

As you can see all of our gardens are fenced.  We need to do that because of the deer and in the yard area to keep the chickens out.

Also wanted to share this huge morning glory plant that I bought at one of the local farmers markets this year.  It was affordable and I wanted to try to grow it on a trellis the wood worker made a few years ago.  I have tried to grow these from seed but they have not done well.  So we are going to dig a huge hole and put a lot of compost in it and I am hoping they we look wonderful the whole summer in our flower boarder.

Went to see our oldest grandson graduate today from 8th grade.  We are so proud of him.  He is 14 and over 6 feet tall.
That's all for now.  I am hanging out with the Friday Night With Friends group tonight but unsure what I am going to work on yet.  Early day tomorrow so I will be posting later in the day what those results are.

Blessings from our home in the woods!

Oh Wow! Brenda! What a lovely garden and I love morning glories! I grow my potatoes in a bucket. This will be my first time growing them. Thank you for sharing your garden pictures.

Hi Brenda,
I haven't been on in awhile. My MIL had a stroke, and passed away, and life has been too busy. I'm taking a break outside with some popcorn and wine, and a little blog reading. Your gardens look great. I just love this time of year, don't you?

A salsa garden!!! Oh my! I want one! I love your blue gate. Your morning glory is gorgeous - we had them for years here, they finally died out, but we do get one or two blooms every now and then. Congrats to your handsome grandson!
