How does your Garden Grow?
I am so glad that I got my garden tilled and planted before all this rain came. This year I am going bigger than last. I planted corn, beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, eggplant, watermelon, cantelope, lettuce and onions. I am also going to plant some pumpkins a little later in the year. This is the first time I have ever planted eggplant. I have never even tried eggplant, but I want to, so I thought I might as well grow my own. This is also the first year I have ever planted green beans myself. I cannot wait for harvest time! Nothing beats homegrown veggies. There is a certain satisfaction that comes with it. I am watching very carefully for new sprouts. I started some tomatoe plants by seeds this year (indoors). I have not yet planted these in the garden. I am trying a new kind. I had to order the seeds off the internet because they are hard to come by. It is a white tomatoe and they are soposed to have hardly any acid in them. This will be great for me since acid affects my bladder condition. I hope they taste good. If they don't I have planted plenty of the regular kind! If they all make it I will have more tomatoes than I know what to do with, but part of the joy of having a garden is sharing the harvest with friends and family!!! Now if we can just get a little sunshine!!
