The Crops are Planted

In addition to working on the deck last weekend (I am still trying to mentally recover from that), we finished up planting the garden.  The weekend started on Saturday morning with a new addition to our tool family.

Quincy is learning young to appreciate tools too!
Eric and his brother Nathan decided to go in on a tiller together and within about 30 minutes of purchase, it was already fired up and being used in our garden. 

Eric in his element...

Then we got to work making our rows off tilled dirt and planting.  Here is an overview of our garden that I created through .
It's pretty hard to read, but here is the summary of what we planted:

  • Raspberry bushes
  • Pumpkins- Atlantic giants, baby boos, baby bears and Cinderella pumpkins
  • Birdhouse Gourds
  • Summer and Winter Squash- hubbards, patty pan and crock necks
  • Beans
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Garlic- actually planted months ago
  • Assorted Herbs
  • Okra
  • Beets
  • Onions- planted months ago
  • Carrots
  • Tomatoes- Beefsteak, Cherokee Purple, Pineapple and some Black Cherry
  • Peppers- jalapenos, green, red and yellow bell peppers
  • Irises- to line the front of the garden

Once things start to sprout, I will post some pictures.  Right now it is looking like a lot of dirt with little signs of lettuce and peas starting to peak out.  I cannot wait for fresh tomatoes though!
