I’m not normally a patient person but I have waited, and waited, and waited for seeds to come up. I would say that about 50% of my seeds worked out.
I ended-up buying a fair number of plants.
NONE of my canteloupe seeds worked out. Weird.
But I found canteloupe today and I planted it.
Our garden area is fairly shaded. I bet in many places that’s a bad thing, but here I think it will be good.
|Garden right. The one in pink isn’t a plant. 🙂 That I know of.|
|P next to our cilantro tree. 🙂|
Let’s see, we have black raspberries, red raspberries, grapes, squash (of 2 different kinds) cucumbers, strawberries, corn, eggplant, cantaloupe, onions, carrots, tomatoes (of like 12 different varieties), watermelon, jalapenos, green peppers, garlic, kale, potatoes, brussel sprouts, peas (dead now — too hot already, although I’m not sure their drip line was working…), beans, cilantro, basil, beets, we had califlower and broccoli but both of those are done and pulled out. I think that is all. Oh, spinach. Also on its last legs.
Anyway, it really is exciting to plant a seed and see something grow. I get absolutely giddy when I see it. It is a very exciting process. The weeding, not so much… but the rest is pretty great.
We’ll just see what works this summer.
How about you, how’s your garden going?
