Day #7, putting in the garden
The white things are hot caps, which still protect the plants, but are cheaper. We have about 30 WoW's and about 20 hot caps placed around... Even with no much plant growth, the garden is certainly colorful!!
We have planted, so far: strawberries, peas, cucumbers, cauliflower, broccoli, tomatoes, asparagus, rhubarb, zucchini, beets, sunflowers, watermelon, cantaloupe, chives... and a load of peppers... lots of different kinds... We still have beans to put in, and the kiddo wants brussel sprouts... but then I think that's it. We'll be planting lettuce, spinach, and most of our herbs here in containers at our place. Plan on building those this next weekend.
Idaho has a MUCH longer growing season, so I know we should be good for freshness. And it does my heart good to know we'll be saving a lot of money as well. It's expensive to eat health, and a garden will certainly help!
