Bug Will Be So Proud...
Since Bug planted her first garden last year, and since then has become a famous gardening guru, I have wanted to be a copycat and plant one also. I had grand plans of Jeff (or Shannon's husband Drew, more likely) making me some raised beds so I could plant a square foot garden. Well when I actually began thinking about it and realistically wondering where I would put raised beds in my small backyard I realized it wouldn't work. So I gave up the dream. Then today I went out to Wavra's and saw veggie starts for only $1.25! I couldn't resist, I got 4 starts and Cheryl, who was with me, said she had pots I could use! WooHoo!
So here is my lovely garden: 1 zucchini, 1 lemon cucumber, 1 burpless cucumber and 1 basil. I am delighted. I know it isn't much but I am jsut so excited about it. I would really like to do carrots but does anyone know: is it too late to plant carrots and can you do them in pots? I would like some advice on this.
By the way, yes I am back from Montana; just got in yesterday. We had a wonderful time and I'll get some pictures posted soon. Secondly, who came up with the name "burpless" for a cucumber???
