Tomatoes have been trickling in for awhile now, about 3-5 here and there, and we've had a cuke here or there as well. Wednesday afternoon, when school was finished I had the boys outside to play on the trampoline. I decided to take a large bowl with me to pick what was ready in the garden. I almost filled my large mixing bowl with red, ripe tomatoes and 2 large cukes.
Suddenly I had the incentive to dig for potatoes in the tires I planted them in. I only planted 4 potatoes, which were cut into about 12 pieces. I came away from the back breaking chore with a bowl full of buried no longer treasure.
I noticed I have some peppers, but being quite small I am leaving them a bit more. I also had a lovely creamy, beautiful butternut squash I decided to leave connected to the vine a little longer.
We had quite a large garden, and learned a few lessons, about things like weeds and weedblock sheeting for instance! I am now very very excited for next planting season ALREADY! I know I can make improvements and get even great returns for my investment.
