Walk Through My Spring Vegetable Garden

May has been a busy month. This is the coolest May on record, or as I like to say, “It has been good brussels sprout weather.” The spring garden is already producing, and we are eating something fresh from the garden every day now. Instead of writing about the garden, I thought I would take you on a video tour.

My garden plots are at my parents’ house, which is less than a mile away from my house. My parents lovingly refer to me as their tenant farmer. I garden every morning and then sit and have coffee with them. It is a lovely way to start the day. This garden is what my parents’ see when they look out their kitchen window, so aesthetics are just as important for this plot as produce production.

Forgive some of the imperfections in video quality. This is my first video tour. I’ll get better with practice.

The spring garden is where I put all the fussy crops that need lots of attention. The summer garden is where I put all those hot weather loving crops that are fine to be left to themselves such as okra, potatoes, pumpkins, beans and zucchini. The summer garden is much bigger and takes much more effort to prepare. This year I planted 54 tomato plants! I’m not sure what I was thinking when I planted all those seeds back in March.

Here’s to hoping that everyone has a bountiful season no matter where you are or what you do.

The summer garden is still a work in progress.

    Love absolutely everything about this…my garden is mostly herbs, cherry tomatoes, peppers, jalapeños, and I’m trying carrots for the first time.

    Thanks for taking the time to watch the video. 🙂 Good luck with your carrots. I leave a board on the seeds after they are planted for 10-14 days to keep the seeds dark and moist. That seems to help the rate of germination. Happy gardening!

    Great job, Kathy! Funny, beets, carrots, and peppers grow like crazy in my garden. Also potatoes and zucchini. I always struggle with broccoli and peas. The deer love the tops of the beets and carrots so be careful of that. 🙂

      Thanks, Judy. So far the deer avoid the garden, but the rabbits are another story. The owls and dogs help keep them in check, but they still munched on my bean sprouts. I think Farmer MacGregor got a bad wrap in the Peter Rabbit story. He was probably a really nice guy who just didn’t want all of his cabbage eaten up. 😀
