Yesterday was my day off from work and it was going to be sunny. I decided I should start to tackle this mess (better known as my vegetable garden….)! Weeds and last year’s growth had taken over a little bit….
Weeds had also taken over the galvanized stock tank planter. Apparently, I grew onions in this planter last year, as some were stating to sprout from the onions I never harvested last year. I decided to clean out the weeds and get this planted.
I got it weeded, but left as many of the onion sprouts as I could.
I found these scallions in the back of the fridge. It seemed like a good idea to give them a home in the planter.
I trimmed off some of the tops and planted them.
Don’t they look happier?
I erected a bamboo teepee for some peas to grow up. I thought it might need some string “ladders” to give the peas something to grab onto.
I couldn’t find any string….but I can ALWAYS find some yarn! 😉
All ready for pea sprouts!
It looks like I need to purchase more seeds this year, but I did find some “greens” seeds. I planted what was left in these packages around the perimeter of the stock tank. Can hardly wait for fresh “greens”!
For some reason, I didn’t get a picture of the finished weeded and raked garden bed (who knows?). But look what I found after getting all that junk out….The Rhubarb is growing! YAY! It won’t be long until we have some Strawberry-Rhubarb Crisp now!
How’s your garden growing?
