Crazy title right?!
The Moose and I decided to give the deck and camper a break this weekend and get to work on the garden. It's really late in starting, but we've had so much rain, even trying to walk in the garden was impossible. So we planted our starter plants (started at home from seed); tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. We also planted from seed; beans, peas, squash, pumpkin, popcorn, watermelon, radishes, lettuce, and spinach. We'll see if our growing season is long enough this year, because we had frost/freeze nights last November. While I was tilling, the Moose cleaned out the strawberry patch. It seems that everything was overrun by grass and weeds. What a pain! Thank goodness we had 80% of the garden covered with black sheeting, otherwise, we'd basically have to start over. One thing about our strawberries, which I know isn't something they do south of here in Plant City, but we need to shade ours or they burn out. We had a tarp over them for the past 6 months or so, and they really took off. So the Moose and I decided to splurg on some material that would let the rain through, and some of the sun. Giving them the best of both worlds.
