Monday Garden Update

It's Monday again...

Is it me or did last week go REALLY fast?  Time goes by so much quicker in the summer.  Guess we were all too busy having fun.

We harvested the last of the peas and the broccoli and tilled those babies down.  We replanted with some summer squash.  We should have squash all summer long this time with this planting.

I'm dry curing our first few onions.  You may remember we planted these last year just before winter.  The ones that are ready are the smaller ones.  We've got some biggins so we have a lot to look forward to this summer.

The first patty pans have been out for a week or so.  Soon, it'll be harvesting time.  The patty pans were directly sown in mid-April.  You know, I think I will do the same as this year and won't bother growing these from seed and transplanting them like we did the year before last.  They come up so fast on their own and there is plenty of stuff in the garden to eat while we wait for them so I just don't see the need. 

Well, that's all for now.  Check out Feet Off the Table for more gardening adventures!

Looks great!

I'm trying Patty pans this year for the first time and I direct sowed my seeds as well. I heard a while back that transplanting squashes, cukes and the like is hard on the plants, but last year when I grew my own and transplanted I had no problem. This year I was too busy 2 weeks before garden planting and never got around to it. Mine are just now poking through the soil, but they grow quick.
