Mary Mary Quite Contrary
Mistress Mary, Quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With Silver Bells, And Cockle Shells,
And so my garden grows.
Since we had no power for a day after the tornado it was the perfect day to get our garden in. Plus I checked the almanac and it said it was a good day :) no planting on a barren day or you will be sorry!
So anyway we put in pole beans, swiss chard, squash of many varieties. We also planted an herb garden. I am very excited about the garden this year. I will keep everyone updated. I am hoping to have enough to either give a bunch away or to sell some at the local Farmers Market. I still have an entire section to plant. Not sure what all I am putting there. I am thinking either strawberries or sunflowers.
I am sure there will be pictures to follow. LOL
