Our 2017 Garden So Far

Finally, our garden has been planted! I was looking forward to it since we wrapped up last summer’s garden, and now it’s here 🙂

We weeded the plot, tilled it, applied weed block, and started a fence.

Then it was time to plant! We did our planting on Memorial Day. We used seedlings from Bedner’s Greenhouse again, since we’ve had great harvests from their plants.

Here’s what we planted:

  • Cherry tomatoes
  • San Marzano tomatoes
  • Purple tomatoes
  • Green beans
  • Japanese eggplant
  • Swiss chard
  • Green peppers
  • Cucumber
  • Zucchini

As you can see, the weed block (black tarp-looking material) is a new addition from last year’s garden. We did a lot of weeding last year, so we’re hoping the weed block will cut back on that task. That would be a game changer! I will keep you posted on how it works for us.

Here’s a look at how our garden has developed since we moved in.

So, that’s our garden so far for 2017! We need to finish up the fence, and then tend to the plants as they grow!
