Every year we plant a vegetable garden in the back yard.
By late March/early April.
Except last year. We planted in June. Our weekends just seemed to get away from us in 2010.
Tomatoes are mandatory.
Three different kinds, at least.
It increases our odds for success.
We have grown corn (enough ears for one dinner party), peppers, squash, beans and lettuce.
There has been a lot of chatter lately about revamping the entire yard, installing drip irrigation, stone paths and such.
Seems like it would take a lot of effort.
Plus our back fence started to fall down so we should probably address that first.
The big makeover can wait and we got the fence to stay upright.
At least temporarily.
For now, we'll just watch our garden grow.
