This week I heard Wyatt yell from across the yard, "Mom, come here! You've gotta see this!" He was thrilled to see our corn sprouting up through the dirt.
We were over a month late getting our garden planted this year. I should clarify. Joel was over a month late. And I'm not criticizing him - thankfully he did all the work preparing and planting the garden, which of course I'm very happy about. If it were left up to me, it wouldn't have happened this year. Life hasn't left me much time for gardening lately :). He's also done all the watering, with the exceptional request for me to turn the tap on or off. That's something I can handle!
I have to say I was equally excited.
We (uh, Joel - already outed myself on that one) planted corn, cucumbers, squash, jalapenos (and lots of them - just for fun we canned 4 jars of jalapenos last year while making pickles and Joel has been rationing them ever since. I think he's imagining an entire shelf of canned jalapenos for this year), cantelope, watermelon, and lettuce. Our tomato and pea plants didn't turn out great last year so we left them out this time.
Have you planted a garden this year? What are you most excited to harvest? Hope you have a great holiday weekend!
