My hands are sore as I write this but I am so happy! I discovered today that I have little zucchini growing! And that I have four muskmelon plants growing when I thought they were all zucchini! Awesome! Sorry, gardening gets me excited. :)
We planted our kentucky wonder beans with the corn, so it can climb up as a natural trellis and its working like a charm. I can't speak highly enough of Terrior Seeds. I don't think I'm that good at growing things, it has to be the seeds. Heirloom and open pollinated. I'm happy and the masses of bees in my yard are too. No sign of colony collapse at my house.
The kids are getting excited. Soon we should be eating peas, we've been enjoying lettuce. Some friends have tomatoes growing already, I'll admit I'm jealous but mine will be coming in their own time.
