Planting Time

The Mission Garden (Mission Field) is almost ready to be planted. We are getting ready for our first community garden. The soil has been worked, we are getting the rock out with a Harley rake next week, and then we will bring in the compost and yes...manure. Funny how that would takes on a different meaning when you are planting a garden!

We are going to be planting tomatoes, onions, potatoes, cucumbers, green beans, squash, corn, watermelons and more. It's going to be an adventure!

Do you garden? If so, what do you enjoy planting? eating? cooking? To me, there's nothing like a fresh tomato and mayo sandwich in the hot summer. Or a cold cumcumber tomato salad. That's good eating!

Above are pics from my garden last year. Enjoy!

Yum, nothing like homegrown veggies!
We usually have our own garden - some years with more luck than other years. My favorite veggies are red bell peppers (they're way too expensive in the store!), yellow squash, zucchini squash and tomatoes. I love to stuff them!

We do not have room for a garden, unless it's a spot here, or a spot there....in our desert dry city! Ugh. We were just talking this morning how we would love to live on a piece of land large enough for this....chickens, and more! Growing up we had a huge garden. I was the only one in Montana who knew what an eggplant was, thanks to my southern-style coooking Mom.
