Happy Mother’s Day!

Since it’s common/tradition to plant your tomatoes on Mother’s Day in Nebraska, I decided to take this day to write an update about our garden….which we named “Weeping Gardens” (please note we are not artists…just gardeners).

This year are garden is about 20 x 14 ft.  Brent and Chuck did a great job tilling the soil…like the manly men that they are. Brent also did a great job securing our garden from the viscous rabbits in our yard…yes they are vicious.  They eat everything in sight. He put up this awesome fence and even made a fancy gate. We even have labels!  I really feel like I am living the dream.

So far, most things seem to be coming up just fine. And if we were trying to start a Maple tree farm, we would be doing great, those damn helicopters! It doesn’t look like much now but in a month this dirt will look green an luscious (fingers crossed).  We planted peas, green beans, carrots, beets, onions, kale, green peppers, squash, zucchini, and tomatoes. We also have some herbs: oregano, mint, lavender, and cilantro.  I think we possibly planted the peas a little late, so I hope they make it through the heat or maybe it will cool down for a while.  I never have any luck with root crops because our soil is clay….so I guess you could say that I am really “rooting” for the carrots, onions and beets!

Hope all you mothers have a great day!  Be good to yourself and your babies. Make someone take care of you today. As I have said before, Edith is the best thing I have ever grown.  The tomatoes have a lot of competition….
