Today Dean and I are planting the rest of this year's vegetable garden. We had already planted lettuce, beans, and broccoli raab from seed, and we have been having fresh baby greens for a week or so. But everything else we will plant from starts (I know, it's cheating, but the growing season is shorter in these northern latitudes!).
Today we are planting:
8 roma tomato
2 red "bush goliath" tomato
1 yellow crookneck squash
We are still looking for some golden romas. Hope we find them soon.
Planting the vegetable garden, getting my hands in the soil, spreading the mulch, weeding the paths, laying out the hoses, always gets me in the mood for writing garden poems. Not sure the world needs another garden poem. But we definitely need our gardens.
What are you planting today?
