Our garden is in!!

Hurray! Our garden is finally planted! On Thursday night, we were able to plant two rows of corn, two rows of beans, and red potatoes. Then on Saturday, we went ahead and started, despite the dark clouds and heavy rain warnings. The rain passed to the south of us, and we only got a little shower. (It was light, and heavy at the same time. I mean, we got SOAKED in seconds, but it wasn't a hard rain. And the sun was still shining. ;)

So, on Saturday we got in two rows of Swiss Chard, Tomatoes, Red onions, Spanish onions, Parsnips, Carrots, Radishes, Pak Choi and two MORE rows of corn.

And, we did it all without disturbing the Killdeer nest! Yes, that's right, we went around it. There are a few shorter rows, and the mama was NOT happy with us - especially when Jeff was running the tiller near the nest, but we didn't hurt it.

See her? She's back on her nest for the night.

All that's left is pumpkins, squash, cucumbers and the marigolds that I'm going to plant all over to help deter the squash bugs and tomato hornworms. {shudder}

  1. Yay for your garden!

    We have more planting to do, too. I think Mom wants to do corn and potatoes in a bit of the pasture that Dad tilled up. And we have a few more things to do in our backyard-garden. (Backyarden?)

    I like gardens, you know. Especially gardens with an angry Mama killdeer in them. ;) If only we had one, too. (A Mama killdeer, I mean.)

    Good night!
