Vegetable garden

Our Garden 2020

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: gardening season!

Fruit and vegetable garden

We planted our annual garden on May 21st. This year, I started a few plants from seeds and transplanted them to the garden. The rest we bought at Lowes and planted as seedlings.

What’s in the garden this year:

  • Cherry and yellow tomatoes
  • Swiss chard
  • Microgreens x2
  • Arugula
  • Green bell peppers
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Strawberries
  • Watermelon
  • Yellow squash x2
  • Zucchini x2
  • Cucumber x2

This is our first year planting watermelon and strawberries, so it will be fun to see how they turn out! I’ll do another update once we harvest our first fruits/veggies!

Did you plant a garden this year?

Our Garden 2019: Harvesting Almost Everything

I’m here with a garden update! Here’s how the garden looked on the day we planted.

And here’s what it looks like now.

Needless to say, we’ve seen a lot of growth! We have harvested everything except eggplant and some of the bell pepper plants. They have a little more ripening to do, but the eggplant is looking great!

I’ve really been enjoying cooking with our tomatoes, jalapeños, rosemary, swiss chard, and zucchini. In fact, I just pulled a roasted pork loin out of the oven that was marinated in balsamic vinegar, tomatoes, rosemary, and jalapeños.

We’ve been trying to eat all the cucumbers, but we can’t keep up with them! I brought a box to church to share and thankfully they were all gone by the time we left 🙂

Too many cucumbers from garden

While the cucumbers, zucchini, and swiss chard have been producing for a month or so now, we’re just starting to enjoy the rest of the veggies.

It’s fun to go out to the garden each day with Sadie and Jimmy and see what’s new! It’s crazy how the vegetables seem to crop up overnight.

So, that’s where we’re at with the garden right now! Neck deep in cucumbers and loving every minute of it 🙂
