So a couple of months ago I posted about how we were planting our (first) garden and I just wanted to follow up and let you all know (is anyone really even out there?) we did gain some viddes from our harvest (before the insurmountable amount of weeks took it over, but lets just be positive here- we were having lawn mower issues for most of the summer).

So with that being said I just wanted to post the few things I was able to learn about gardening this year.

1. Plant your corn in a straight row.

2. After we tilled up the first part of our garden we realized that if we space out the rows and left enough grass between them it might make it easier to walk along and pick without being eaten alive by chiggers & mosquito’s, since we could mow between the rows but then the mower went to whichever place mowers go to when they die.

3, Radishes, Cucumbers and Summer Squash can and will survive anything including neglect. Such forgiving vegetables!

4. Spinach is not so forgiving.

Were really looking forward to next year and have lots of plans for how we will “map out” our next garden. We hope to do both a Spring and late Summer harvest. Now if only our pumpkins would grow!
