Suki's Garden - 1st Year

Post  slotti on 5/27/2011, 2:11 pm

It took me a while, but my garden finally got planted last week. Thanks to the rain and {insert all other excuses here} it took me a while to get the beds built and soil mixed. BUT IT IS DONE. And then I planted last week. Hooray!

If you want to see how it looked last week, you can click here to read about it on my blog.

It looks like I have to put my pictures somewhere online before I can put them here... but I just wrote a blog post so you can go there to see the pictures and hear my problem (yeah, just one). :-P

Overall, I'm so glad we have a garden this year!! I love just being out there and looking at each square individually. DH and DD came out while I was planting this week and DD was so energetic and wanted to dig in the dirt with my trowel! She also enjoyed my bucket of water. Smile She's 17 months and I told her that maybe next year I will build a box just for her. I'm also already planning building at least one more box next year. Most likely more.

Your boxes are beautiful. The pepper flower is just doing what they do, I'll bet if you check on it you will see a tiny baby pepper Very Happy . The damage could be a bunny. In my garden I have had damage that looked like that but it was birds. I know it was not rabbits because it is a TT.

Thank you! I know we could have gone cheaper with making the boxes but we really like what we did. I'm making Fridays my garden update day on my blog.

The damage was a bunny. I saw it yesterday when putting up the fence. Unfortunately... it got nearly all my lettuce plants, two brussel sprouts, and both my broccolis. They haven't touched my pepper plants so maybe my entire garden will be pepper plants... not enticing to me! Haha, oh well. Now I have more opportunities to plant something else or just more broccolis and brussel sprouts. Nothing looked chomped today so hopefully that fence is doing the trick.

Hope the fence takes care of your bunny problem.

Now that the fence is up, do some replanting and enjoy your garden.
