|The first snap pea of the season!|
We also built some new garden beds in our parking strip and added a new plating area in our backyard.
This year we decided to only do a few things from seed (lettuce, carrots, beets, beans, snap peas) and to buy starts for everything else. And I think we made a good decision. Although May had several sunny days, our June has been cool, rainy, and full of slugs. I know that any sprouting seedling would have been decimated. Plus, checking on seedlings every day has been one less thing to worry about!
We planted tomatillos, tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, bush beans, pole beans, cilantro, dill, and some Italian herbs. I wanted to choose about a million more plants, but we just don't have the space.
But, we do have our fingers crossed for a good gardening year with plenty of food to share with neighbors and friends. Really, is there anything better?
