We even tasted some of the fruits of our labors and my youngest liked these "spicy" "apples". They did taste oh so good and oh so fresh!
Else where in the yard are tomatoes, eggplants, pumpkins, squash, cauliflower, broccoli, beans, potatoes, cucumbers, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, rhubarb plus my herbs. We are off to a good start! I think the only thing left to get in the ground are peppers and a few more tomatoes all of which are sitting in my kitchen window looking ready to make the move outside.
Above is are lone squash plant (I do have seeds planted too). I got 4 from my grandmother and this is the only one that made it and it has fought to live!
With all this planting I needed markers for the seeds we had put in. I have always struggled with marking things - I seem to be a free-spirit gardener - but this time I decided we needed markers. So, I took some recycled lids from cottage cheese and the like that I had saved, wrote the plant name, put in a couple holes, used a stick as the pole and tah-dah, a recycled plant marker.
