|Lot 40 with it's Fava Bean plants, just Fava beans|
I had come to the garden to see if we needed to get a rototiller and do it ourselves. As I stood looking at the plot I was thinking that this is Mother's Day weekend, one of the busiest nursery shopping holidays. The last place I want to be is a nursery or garden center shoving my way to the plant display and standing in the longest lines ever.
So I headed straight over to Yard N Garden Land (the closest nursery and a good one) and picked out a flat of vegetables for the garden. No real thought to the variety or the plan that is half finished in my head. The only thing I remembered was the advice last year to select corn with the shorter maturity time.
I now have a variety of plants ready to go to the garden at any moment the urge strikes (which may be Sunday afternoon, unless it's raining). I got corn, green beans, crook neck squash, zuchini, onions, and 3 pumpkins.
I'll wait on the tomatoes for a week or two (despite seeing them already in at the garden). Around here the first week of June is considered a safe time to plant tomatoes. Plus, I still need to buy some cages, last year I used some hand me downs in different sizes. I learned that unless you have someone build a fancy custom cage, the large metal cages work best.
Before I go I'd like to say "Happy Mother's Day" to my mom, my sister and Chris' mom.
