Vegetable Garden 2010

This Spring has been really busy for me. I spent several nights last week pulling weeds to clear the rows from the garden plot. The seed starting efforts this year were also impacted by my lack of time. I was able to grow one flat of seedlings. The second one didn't make it. I decided to supplement my homegrown seedlings with store bought ones in order to fill out the garden. I took a trip to Eisley's Nursery on Saturday morning and planted on Sunday.

Compared to last year's garden, there are some notable differences. The first is the quantity of pepper plants. I told my husband that this was going to be the "Year of the Pepper" and I wasn't kidding. There are about 70 pepper plants in plan. Some are the same varieties as last summer, some are new. I am excited for both.

We also have tomatoes (of course!) and I am trying out the Three Sisters Garden approach with corn, beans, and pumpkins. So far, I am optimistic because it has rained 2 of the last 3 days and the seedlings are off to a good start. I'll keep you posted on the progress.
