It has been a heck of a year for gardening. It started out cold and wet, then super hot and dry, and now it's back to cold and wet. But I am finally getting my seedings planted!

Dill's  Atlantic Giant pumpkin plant, all by itself (it needs the space!) and snow peas (to add nitrogen to Mr. Giant's soil)

Mammoth Gold pumpkin and shell peas (scattered throughout the pumpkin and squash section - extra nitrogen in the soil, plus one of my friends REALLY likes shell peas) and Jack Be Little pumpkins (cute tiny pumpkins for the grandkids)

Tomatoes: My Marglobe plant died from damping off disease and was replaced with a Big Boy tomato plant (gift); the cherry tomato does not look happy, I may need to buy a replacement; the Roma tomatoes are hanging in there

    • Thank you, 2015 was a good year - I hope Mother Nature starts behaving herself soon, though, or 2021 will not be a good year in the garden...

  • Really green and beautiful garden! I didn’t know asparagus got that tall

    • Thank you, it is my therapy. 😊 That's what happens to asparagus if you don't pick the spears. You can only pick for a few weeks, then you have to let it grow up so it can feed the root system for next year's crop.

    • Thank you! It's more therapy than work to me, though. You certainly have a green thumb, so I'm sure you can make anything grow. 🙂

  • Beautiful garden. I didn't know how asparagus looked like mature, interesting! I hope the artichokes will keep up growing 😍

    • Thank you! I'm sure they'll keep growing, the question is whether they grow fast enough to bloom before fall frost hits.
