Garden girls

It’s the year of the tomato . . . despite having room for maybe three tomato plants at most, I went a bit overboard at the country market. Now, we have five heirloom varieties, including Nebraska Wedding, Green Zebra, Yellow Pear, Black Cherry and Brandywine.

Bryan reminded me that I’m pretty terrible when it comes to picking tomatoes, but I think we’ll have plenty of help this summer . . .

I also crammed in a cucumber and a zucchini plant (the Bornemeier in me wanted to plant two), and our herbs. What’s growing in your garden this spring?

    I don’t have a garden…which works for me since I pretty much hate all vegetables.

    Onions, 4 herbs, radishes, lettuce, spinach, carrots, garlic, shallots (so far).

    Green grass! Grampa was great at planting, but not at weeding, so grass works much better here.

    Berries! I also tend to go overboard… I put in 50 strawberry plants, 3 blueberry bushes, and a row of 2 types of raspberries. Then last week I ordered 2 honeyberry bushes and a rhubarb plant. We signed up w/ a CSA for our vegetables, though 🙂
