We’re running out of room in our backyard for garden beds. Slowly but surely, we’ve used up nearly every free space, pulling out just a few plants here and there, to make a little more room. In the top of this picture you can see newly dug up areas that have just had seeds sprinkled into them; pumpkin, sunflowers, corn, zucchini, cucumber, capsicum and eggplant. I’ve planted some dill seeds, a first for me, in the central bed. These corn went in as seeds, a month ago and are looking great. We didn’t get the best germination percentage, but just last weekend I planted some more seeds in between. Hopefully this will help out the corn with their pollination. The potatoes seem to love this blue barrel and are growing great guns! This is about as covered as they’ll get, so now we just sit and wait until these plants die off. Then we need to harvest and store. Do you know anything about storing potatoes?I finally pulled out the brussle sprouts, even though they showed tiny but promising signs of sprouts actually growing. Sadly, even the chickens didn’t like them. But in it’s place has gone a variety of tomato plants and some purple basil.
