Who planted this weekend?

Have you started planting your garden yet? If so, what have you planted so far?

We have planted 6 tomato plants, 3 yellow squash plants, 2 zucchini plants and spinach seeds.  The cukes, watermelon and herbs go in the ground this week.

We still have plenty to go, but it is so wonderful to have the garden started!  The planting part is easy. The most time consuming part is putting down the newspaper and hay straw. It really keeps the weeds down and keeps the plants from drying out too much so it is worth the effort.

Above is a picture of the tomatoes and squash. Well, you really can't see the plants very well with all the hay straw, but they are in there. In a couple weeks they will be much bigger!

Hurray for Spring!
