I'm embarrassed to say that the seeds I planted for cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower were disastrous so I had to go up to our local farm market today and buy plants. It was so fun to go and look at all their plants. While I was there I found Provence Lavender for $2 a pot and was ecstatic!! That's the exact lavender I've been looking for. They had other herbs but I already had them . . . and they had some asparagus that looked really yummy so I bought a bundle for our dinner tomorrow evening. It was a very lucrative trip. Let's see - I bought 8 early cabbage, 12 late cabbage, 12 broccoli, 8 cauliflower, 2 pots of lavender and a bundle of cut asparagus all for under $21. That's not bad!!! I've got red and white potatoes all cut up and 4 bags of onions sitting in the garage waiting for planting. The tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and basil are outside sitting in the sun and ready to transplant as soon as I feel they will survive. Unless the squirrels or rabbits destroy our plants that should be all the plants I have to buy. The seed for the garden has already been purchased and we're ready as we can be. Now, PLEASE, weather cooperate!!!!!
YAHOO!!! Finally, 3 long rows of potatoes, 1 row of onions, a row of broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage, a row of lettuce, Swiss Chard, arugula, spinach and kale, and 1/3 row of beets are in and we are all tuckered out! We planted way too many potatoes but we just couldn't throw them away! Potatoes go in with little trouble but the digging in the late summer is a bear!!
The garden looks so beautiful.
