I can’t believe I’m actually writing about my garden. Up until 10 years ago I had always had a very prolific garden, but then whoops – life got in the way. Well, now my garden is back – thanks to Bobby. Last year he built me two 4′ x 10′ raised beds and spent last fall and winter making the soil for one of the beds. By April it was ready to plant.
As you can see below, I may have gotten a little carried away in my plantings. In this one bed, I have four heirloom tomatoes, four bell peppers, one cherry bomb pepper, two eggplants and four “bush” cucumbers plants which, I have discovered, that there is no such thing as “bush” cucumbers. The peppers plants aren’t producing yet, because I had to replace them when the neighborhood racoons found my garden and used it as a playpen. Several plants got broken, and even though I tried desperately to save them – the attempt was a no go. But in spite of the racoons, the June heat, and the heavy thunderstorms, my little garden has survived and to date, has provided us with several tomatoes and cucumbers. Eggplant and peppers are well on there way.
