I'm extra excited about the vegetable garden. Before taking off
for my travels, I dropped any seeds that I have leftover from last year into the ground. I adjusted th
e automatic drip system that I had installed last year and made sure that I didn't set it too high. Last year, I drowned a few squash plants. I figured that whatever happened to come up would make me happy, and anything that didn't
wouldn't matter since they were just leftover seeds. I leave town for 10 days and come back to a thriving garden. The beans, peas and carrots are doing so well!
I was feeling inspired by the ease of that and, as usual, went a little overboard at the nursery. I planted potatoes for the first time a few weeks ago and they're coming up really fast already. I've also got the usual peppers, onions, squash, zucchini, beans, spinach, and tomatoes. I'm still learning how to do all this but if even a third of this stuff last long enough to feed me, I will be a happy girl!
