Our hay bale garden update
We are so tickled that our garden is thriving this year. Last year's attempt to grow from seeds was a disaster. After some mishaps involving our cats, we had to start over with seeds. None of our tomatoes or herbs made it.
This year we decided to start with plantlings AND do hay bale gardening.
We used only 4 hay bales. Since we KNOW ( Pinterest success idea ) it works, we will spread out of garden next year.
Wow!!! Our garden is thriving. We have lots of tomato varieties, chile peppers, jalepenoes, green peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, English cucumbers, pickling cucumbers, regular cucumbers, oregano, lavender, catnip, broccoli and cauliflower.
The tomatoes were the last to start growing fruit.
We water them every day and "feed" them every other day.
We will be collecting yellow squash and zucchini by the end of the week.
We are going to freeze and/or can our veggies, too.
