Time For Summer Gardens

It’s warming up as we approach May.  The spring gardens are starting to produce, and now is the time we start prepping and planting our summer gardens.  Over the next few days we aim to plant beans, corn, tomatoes, summer squash, cucumbers, zucchini, watermelon, cantaloupes, okra, winter squash, peppers, eggplant and sunflowers.  We’ll also be starting our sweet potato slips.

Yesterday I got the party started by planting some green beans.

The list of things that need tending is now long and getting longer.  Basically we’ll be busy from daylight till dark until about the first of December.  As it should be.
