2010 Garden Is FINALLY In! :)

I had to hold off on planting my garden this year due to a very cold and wet May…we were still having snow. Sheesh.

Today was 88F and very humid…29% humidity! You all in the south, just hush your mouth! That’s humid for us!

From the looks of it…most of my garden will make great Italian sauces! 🙂

In the first box I planted:

Brandywine Tomato
Black Prince – a Russian Heirloom
two types of garlic (planted last month)
Greek Oregano
Orange Bell Pepper
Sweet Basil
Flatleaf Italian Parsley

Second Box I planted:

2 Roma Tomatoes
Red Bell Pepper
German Thyme
Cayenne Pepper
Beebalm
Italian Flatleaf Parsley
2 Sweet Basils
Yellow Sweet Onions (planted 1 week ago)

In the Third Box I planted:

7 Yukon Potatoes (planted 2 weeks ago)
5 Purple Potatoes (planted 2 weeks ago)
Flatleaf Italian Parsley
2 Straightneck Squash (planted 1 week ago)

You can see the Rosemary I planted in a pot that I found in the trash the other day.

Here’s a closeup of the potatoes….

I still want to get two tomatillos, two cucumbers, one dill , and one green chile…those will go into containers.

    Yay!! It all looks beautiful!! I can’t wait to see it grow, I know you have a way of making your plants gorgeous and huge – though I haven’t been able to figure out how!

    Hope you’re having a wonderful Tuesday! By the way, I have a baking challenge for you on my newest post! 😉

    Great blog! I’ve been popping in on your blog for a while and always enjoy the great info and pics. I live in Sparks on a small piece of property with a particularly extreme microclimate so producing food can be challenging. It’s always nice to learn what others in the area are doing. I’ll include Sleepy Hollow on my blog role at http://www.ccandrfarm.blogspot.com. Cheers!
