The Garden is in!

With the weather starting to stay on the warmer side, Dan, my dad, and I decided to plant our garden. Taking into consideration how things grew last year, we decided to plant the following veggies:

  • Sweet 100s cherry tomatoes
  • Beef steak tomatoes
  • Bell peppers
  • Chili peppers
  • Thai Dragon peppers
  • Jalapeno peppers
  • Sweet Banana peppers
  • Summer Squash
  • Zucchini
  • Cucumber
  • Green beans
  • Basil
  • Rosemary
  • Chives

It’s going to be a BIG garden this year, and we are dying to see how everything grows!

To prevent our squash, zucchini, and cucumber from growing into the other plants, I suggested making some wooden fixtures for them to grow over. After looking around, I found a great idea on Pinterest that made a fixture out of old wood pallets. The pallet fixtures turned out great, and we are looking forward to seeing how the plants take to them.

We did have one last frost scare earlier this week, but we protected our plants by covering them with all our old tupperware and lego containers. :)
