Garden update....

Not much to update this week. Same old story. Weeds, weeds and more weeds!!
I am too embarrassed to take a picture to show the horror. Maybe next week.
My husband thinks that it was a complete failure and that there is no need to try next year. I beg his pardon. This only makes me want to try harder next year. I know where i went wrong. Kind of. The whole weeding issue. Maybe I can hire a kid and pay him $10 to weed the garden. I will look into that.
I am happy for the quality time I spent with Amara in the garden. I learned that she can make up a song on the spot about anything. I learned that she does not like to pull weeds for more than 10 minutes at a stretch. I at least have a few HUGE zucchini to show for all the time and effort(ha) I put into it. A handful of edible strawberries and green beans and peas too. I probably should not hold my breath on the broccoli and the bell peppers have yet to make an appearance either.
I will have many fond memories of my first attempt at an organic garden!

fyi... bell peppers in michigan have to be started by seed inside WEEKS before it's warm enough to plant them outside.(says my dad, an awesome gardener). i just buy already established pepper plants from a greenhouse.
not sure about broccoli...

Dont beat yourself up one bit over the garden! My Dad's been gardening for as long as I've been alive & he's having a hard time with his too! It's this wacky weather! At least you have a few goodies to show for :) lol
