Planting Done!

Posted on

I hope this posts as my “add new post” section looks odd today… frowns

 

I finished planting today, I got my Tiger’s eye beans in the ground, the cucumbers, the summer squash, and three types of inedible gourds. I am hoping to make a few things if they grow well. What surprised me when I started planting my Tiger’s eye beans was that I had many more than I thought I did. I think I planted 4 rows in a 8 ft long bed.

I also had a few flowering shrubs to plant that one of the neighbor’s sent my way. My son is going to be working for her and her husband on and off this summer and she figured if she was having my son thin the bushes out she may as well send a few my way. They produce a small yellow flower, and she said they were eating her driveway. So I put them where they can grow as much as they want.

My strawberries are starting to set fruit, and I am hoping they produce a lot as I am looking forward to making jam, drying some and maybe make a few syrups with them. I’ll have to look around for a few other ways to use them, maybe some chocolate covered strawberries!

 

That is about it for now as we are still on tentative hold on house building as we need the kids out of school and a ladder to continue.

 

Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…

  1. Congrats! Guess we aren’t all that late with the planting on our homestead then. We still have a few more things to get in the ground, but should be done this week.
