Garden Pre-Beach

Here is update three on the garden.  Most everything is up except the third corn plantation.  The weed situation is entirely under control.  My bet is after we return from two weeks at the beach, chaos will be happening.  We shall see!

Seven hours in the garden later, the garden is finally up and running about a week late.  I usually get everything in around Mother’s Day, so I am not too far behind, but the rain put a serious kibosh on the original plan.

Here is a celebratory video about all of the stuff in the garden.  (I forgot to mention the cucumbers near the beginning, but I think I covered most everything.  Hopefully all the seeds will germinate and we’ll be off to the races.
