My yard is beautiful this time of year. I have 40 rhododendrons in various stages of blooming. It’s a wonderful time to be doing yard work.
I’m working on planting my vegetable garden. I’ve spaded my raised-bed garden, amended the soil with compost and vegetable fertilizer, and planted cucumber seedlings.
Next to that, I’ve planted zucchinis. They need a lot of room.
For seeds, I’ll plant Swiss chard, carrots, kale, collards, and green beans in the raised-bed garden.
I also grow vegetables in containers on my patio.
I’ve planted lettuce and spinach. I’ll also plant eggplant, green pepper, and strawberries.
I also planted peas. And, even more cucumbers. I’ll probably have too many.
I love planting a garden every year and eating fantastic organic vegetables. Gardening is easier these than ever these days.
You can go to a garden center and buy a raised-bed garden kit. Find a flat place, fill it with soil and compost, and plant seedlings. Water as the plants grow, and, like magic, vegetables will appear.
And, if you’re out in your yard a lot, you never know what you’ll see.
