Garden

So, one thing I haven't updated on in a looong time is my garden. Last year I started my garden blog and updated it every few weeks with pics. This year, not so much. It's doing ok. I decided not to try corn this year, and a few other things. I planted tomatoes, green peppers, peas, potatoes, lettuce, and radishes. The lettuce and most of the radishes got destroyed the first few weeks from Jakey digging in the garden. The first 4 tomato plants got eaten to pieces by birds so I had to plant more and put some netting around them to keep the birds away, and they are growing ok. I actually had one tomato starting to grow but Jakey reached in and pulled it off. The peas are growing great, but the boys keep picking the pods off before they are done lol. The potatoes are growing like crazy, but who knows if there will actually be many potatoes. Last year I only had about 6 even though the plants grew a ton. And we did get some strawberries this year, but the birds kept eating them as soon as they were ripe. The flowers also got ripped up by the birds and only a few have survived. One of the hosta plants I planted last year actually popped up this year, to my surprise, but it's been eaten by bugs a ton and hasn't grown very big. The front flower bed is doing great though, tons of flowers all over.

Hopefully by the end of the growing season I can update on the yummy tomatoes and peas and potatoes I get :) Homegrown veggies are so much yummier.
