But then I saw the carrots, beets, peppers, onions, potatoes, Swiss chard and various herbs. All of those are looking great and on track so far. The chard and potatoes could actually be eaten now, but I'm going to give them a couple more weeks to let them mature just a little more.
The snow peas are from my Mom and Dad's garden. Their garden looks so much better than ours! My Mom gets out there everyday and hoes the weeds away and breaks up the dirt so the veggies can "breathe." It really helps the plants. (I'd like to get out there everyday, but I'm just a weekend farmer.)
This weekend, I transplanted about two dozen tomato seedlings (several different varieties, including Amish Paste, Fresh Salsa, and some orange, pink, and even a black variety). I also planted five types of beans; two types each of watermelons, squash, cantaloupes; pumpkins; and some herb seedlings. In the meantime, Sandy planted three very long rows of sweet corn.
So now we wait. Again. And we hope. Such is the way of the farmer. :-)
