Sowing the Seeds of Anticipation!

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

My newly retired husband has just finished relocating our small garden patch in the hopes of eliminating a tomato plant virus we have experienced over the last couple of years. Garden is ready and just on time for my Victoria Day planting ritual!

Next step is planning what should go in this new garden plot? I have the tomato plants – they were planted on March 17th – a family tradition passed down by my Dad. I know that I will plant some yellow beans, that’s a given. Maybe I’ll try a row of different types of leaf lettuce. They would go well on sandwiches at lunchtime.

Now if only my husband could convince our resident rabbit that our humane trap is really only a method to travel to new and more exciting places!

    The soil is still a bit cool to plant heat loving plants here. For some reason, regular or beefsteak tomatoes don't work, but grape tomatoes grow like weeds so that's likely what I'll plant, along with some melons of some kind (acorn squash, maybe, and zucchini). I might do Brussel sprouts this year. They grew like crazy a couple of years ago. Need the soil to dry out first, though. It's been raining all week, and we have clay soil. Ugh.
