As of Sunday afternoon, the fence is finished. The gates are made and installed. Planting time is here! Our first garden in Texas!
The first things planted in my garden are potatoes and onions. The potatoes should have been planted at least two weeks ago but I’ll hope for the best. I planted 5 pounds of seed potatoes and 60 onions.
There are lots of other things to plant.
Doesn’t look like much, huh? Especially since those strawberries don’t go in the garden . . they’re just being stored in there to keep them safe from the deer.
The trees don’t go in the garden either but, like the strawberries, the fenced in garden space is their refuge from the deer til we can get them planted and a fence around them. There’s our fig, a peach to replace a peach that was dead when we got here and a pear. They’re laying down because of the wind . . til we can get them planted and tied down, they’re safe.
I have lots of seeds to plant – carrots, peas, beans, okra, beets . . some are ready to plant now, the cream peas and okra need to wait another few weeks before I plant those. We’re going to be busy!
