garden goodies

August 4th, 2007 at 03:41 am

I started my garden late this year (maybe late April?), and was worried that we wouldn't get many vegetables out of it. I didn't have a tiller, so I just cleared the grass out with a shovel and a lot of elbow grease, made holes with a post hole digger, and planted my little seedlings. Because I was lazy, I didn't give the plants enough room, so all the plants are growing over each other...Good thing it has been raining like crazy! So, many things to learn for next year, but it is looking pretty good for a thrown together endeavor. I only spent $35 for all the plants, plus I couldn't find any spaghetti squash seeds, so I bought a squash, cut it open, removed the seeds, ate the squash, and kept the seeds. That thing is growing like crazy!

Even though the plants are growing over each other, I am getting vegetables. I want to keep track to see if I get my $35 back.
