I thought I would use this blog as a journal for our garden this year.
Today I started 136 pots of seeds. All things that need to be started inside. Here is a not very detailed list:
54 pots of a a few different kinds of tomatoes. This is way over kill (I am praying I get 20 good plants, if I end up with more I might gift them, or stick them in the ground and we will eat a ton of tomato products if the Lord wills!)
9 pots of celery
10 pots onions
5 pots leeks
5 pots watermelon
9 pots melons (all early 3 different kinds)
22 pots of different squashs, 3 summer and two winter kinds.
5 pots ground cherries
4 pots cuccumbers
4 pots cabbage
The kids are each planting a raised bed and started their seeds today as well.
celery, 3 kinds on tomatoes, ground cherries, 2 melons and an onion. One pot of each.
Cabbage, squash, watermelon, tomato, cuccs. two melons and an onion. One pot of each.
Andrew chose to plant 8 pots of watermelon! 🙂
The kids will be keeping a close look at their plants, and documenting how they grow etc as part of their science.
Depending on the weather, I will plant greens, beets and peas outside the beginning of May (and then again in the end of summer for a fall crop). Green beans, potatoes and all these goodies will be in their permanent homes the end of May. We are planning a rather large garden this year, and trying a few new things. Quinoa and parsnips are going in this week.
