Vegetable Garden: Week -4


Mary, Mary, quite contrary. How does your garden grow?

Slowly, if at all. . .

Last week was technically four weeks out from our frost date, but seeing as how we’ve had a frost warning for the last two nights and other one tomorrow night, I’m not so sure.  While I spent the weekend in 85 degree, sunny Dallas, it was rainy and in the 40s in Fayetteville.

Fun for me, not so much for the plants. onions2

I did plant a few more veggies last Sunday when my in-laws were in town.

I planted sweet onions


and broccoli broccoli

and garlic (which looks like ready-to-eat garlic already? )


This is what the garden looked like at the beginning of the last week:

As of now, everything is going well. I think. Apparently we had some hail and heavy rain while I was gone this weekend and my poor beds were left uncovered. It’s too early to tell if any damage was done, but hopefully everything will survive. My lettuce is finally starting to turn red (it is red lettuce after all) and the spinach is starting to sprout. It hasn’t even been two weeks since I first planted, but it seems like much longer. Every day I check the beds for new growth.

Even if the garden is a colossal fail, it will at least taught me a lesson on patience.
