A little late but we got the garden planted today. The weather hasn’t been hot but it sure has been good growing for established plants; our grass and fruit trees are going wild. I think this could be a banner year for fruit. Our summer garden has quite a variety this year including zucchini, crookneck, spaghetti and kuri squash; rutabega; leeks and red and white onions; carrots including bolero and flyaway; beets, tomatoes, lettuce and rhubarb. In the orchard this year, we have four varieties of apples, two pears, three plums and a cherry. When it cools, we’ll plant some peas, broccoli and cauliflower. Our herb garden will have oregano, cilantro, garlic, parsley, chives and basil to name a few. It’s shaping up to be a great year in the garden and now that hydro has picked up the ol’ fridge and we’ve made a pet food storage unit of the ol’ freezer, we have a lot more room for preserves, canning and freezing. I just have to finish the article on root cellars now! Stay tuned to see what happens!
