By the light of the of the full moon, DT planted our new, improved, bigger, glorious, will produce enough food for all of Southeast Texas Garden, ok I got carried away there. But not only did we plant our new huge garden, but we also planted our old smaller but still large garden. So seriously we are going to have 45 variety of tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, white squash, both Japanese eggplant and black beauty eggplant, several varieties cucumbers, hot and mild jalapeno peppers, shallots, corn, bell peppers, bush and purple hull green beans, white potatoes, black diamond watermelon and dill all coming out our WAA-ZOO!
Looks like we are going to be super busy with our garden this summer, I am excited for all the veggies and new recipes I will try. I am most eager for some fresh garden salsa, yum.
Does anyone have any recipes they would be curious in seeing me cook? Or any favorites to share?
So you want to know the details? Here we go.
Starting with our big garden DT bought 4 types of tomatoes; Celebrity, BHN444, Hillbilly, and Amelia.
DT like to buy plant for his tomatoes, okra, squash, and peppers.
Here’s a day time pic of our new garden
DT has set up a water sprinkler in both gardens that we will put on at least once a day until plants have fully rooted or it rained.
Here are the new planted banana peppers, and purple hull green beans sprouting up.
Back view of the garden, DT planted watermelon, corn, green beans, potatoes, and yellow squash
Old garden- first row is cucumbers, 2nd row of green beans, 3 rd 4 jalapenos, and Kandy Corn (super sweet corn)
4th row white squash, 5th row is cherry tomatoes, and mild jalapenos, last row hybrid cucumbers, and shallots
in the square plot he planted Dill to be used to make dill pickles
But one thing that Daddy doesn’t realize is that this year he is going to have lots of help in the garden!
