The garden looks much smaller than last year. It is now at 18'x22'. We will have to till one more row for zucchini, squash and cucumber. That would probably increase the size to 18' x 25-26'.
Other than the main garden, I have a row of hot peppers, mint and parsley along the garage. I have two long pots of lettuce.
We aren't planting spinach and bell peppers this year. Originally we weren't planning on planting any kind of beans either, but we changed our minds. We may not get much out of the plants we'll have, but there will be something to munch on while we're working in the garden.
We cut down the tomato plants by half. I don't think I have the time to can as many tomatoes this year as the previous years.
Speaking of canning tomatoes, we still have the chopped tomato quart jars from last year's crop! I haven't buy stewed or chopped tomatoes in over a year now. At this time last year, we still have the previous year's bounty.
That was nice.
I still have to plant the front flower bed and the bed along the back deck. I did get the pots on the deck planted with wave petunias. Just one type of flower. Easy peasy. No need to create headaches for myself on what to plant where.
I am planning getting a lot of hostas for both the front and back deck's flower bed. Call it trying to save time and energy on my part. That's all I am going to have for the back deck. As for the front bed, the hostas will be the backdrop for other flowers. It will cover the scraggly ground.
