May 1, 2016 Garden

So much work has been done in the garden! Jeremie spent the whole day helping me out. He put up trellises and arbors for my cucumbers and southern peas and tomatoes. He tilled up the hillside for corn. He helped me lay down plastic because I want to plant my pumpkins and gourds in the plastic and train the vines to grow down the hill, into the corn. We have a huge garden this year, but the wood chips keep the weeding under control. We have spent an hour or so out there, pulling weeds and freshening up the garden for the new growing season!

The left arbor is for Southern peas..Calico Crowder on the north side and Mandy on the south side. The arbor on the right has cucumbers. There is lettuce planted under the cukes and beets planted under the peas. I hope it stays shady and cool enough for those cool weather loving greens.
