Farm stand

Well, not a real farm stand, but perhaps the start of one? Last year's adventure in gardening ended up with me only having male zucchini plants, 2 peppers and no cucumbers,but a metric ton of herbs.

year 2: we got serious. Yup, that rinky-dink raised bed is mine. All mine! It's in the midst of a HUGE garden my landlady has been cultivating since the 1950s. And, yes, she laughs at me. But then, she pulls my weeds, picks bugs off my plants and brings me tomatoes. :)
Planted: zucchini (4), cucumbers (5), peppers (4), thai basil, sweet basil, strawberries (in hanging pots) and lettuce seed is going in this weekend.

Mary Mary quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row.


  1. I hope we get some sun for your garden. Nothing is going to grow big and strong with all this rain.

  2. Zucchini comes in male and female? Maybe that is why I ended up not getting any as well? Learn something new every day!! Hope your garden grows, and that it brings the SUN out!

  3. Good luck! We haven't had much gardening luck ourselves so I know how challenging it can be.
