We’ve had some really rough storms the past couple weeks and the temperatures have been cold. Yesterday morning my husband scrapped a heavy frost off our truck windshield. I sure enough thought that what few things we have in our garden would be bit back by the frost. I took my camera to the garden to assess the damage…
I must say I’m nicely surprised that none of our plants were damaged. I was especially happy to see that our cherry tomatoes are starting to bloom and our cucumbers, squash and sunflowers are starting to come up.
I planted 20 hills of squash. It looks as if the storm washed about 1/3 of the hills down so far the seeds aren’t coming up. It’s no big deal really because if the few squash plants that are growing now all make that will be plenty, but I’ve a bit of an obsession with growing squash and figure I’ll be replanting anyhow. The round squash are just so darn pretty and fun to see growing in my garden. lol
We still have a few more tomato plants and some more seeds to plant. We’re going to try to grow a few vegetables that we’ve never grown before: watermelon radishes, swiss chard & kohlrabi. I have no clue how to cook them or what they taste like. We’re just trying something new for fun. Hopefully we’ll get them planted soon (if the weather allows and the ground dries out enough.)
Here’s wishing you all a successful gardening season!
