This week in the garden - #59
We've been rocking and rolling in the garden this week, placing moss rocks as edging around some of the beds. We still have lots of rocks and lots of beds to go. The beds that have been completed look much better. The rocks bring definition and interest to the garden.
In the vegetable garden, every corn seed that I planted a couple of weeks ago seems to have come up. In a few weeks, we should have some good eating - if this variety is any good. It is called 'Gold Dots' and I haven't tried it before, so we'll just have to wait and see how tasty it is.
The zucchini and lemon squash that I planted last week are beginning to come up, also, and I did manage to get the pepper and eggplant plants that I had started under lights in my garage planted into their bed this week. A couple of days after I planted them, we got a nice rain which perked up all the plants.
Next, I hope to get some cucumbers and green beans planted. Maybe next week.
