In The Garden


Well now that I have posted about the worms and the Herbs it’s time to update you on the Veggie garden. It started out a little rough. First we planted before Easter which I quickly learned was a no, no.  Our seedlings popped up in a week! The photos of the beans were taken after about 2 weeks. The rest were taken after 4 weeks!

But then disaster struck…the dreaded last frost hit on the very weekend we decided to go out of town and were not home to protect our plants! We came home and the bean plants were brown and laid over.  So sad was I that I couldn’t bear to take a picture. We also lost the broccoli and one beet plant. Luckily all the other plants made it. We decided to replant the beans but this time with kidney beans, navy beans, and black beans:

Not the whole jar I promise!

 

The result 2 weeks later:

The beans are on the back row.

Oh my goodness! How much fun is this?!

Here is this weeks pics:

If you are wondering what the brown stuff is, it’s cinnamon. Why, you ask? Because ants apparently hate the stuff!
