Vegetable Garden
We had a very busy weekend here at Seco Creek Farm. Besides all of the daily goat related chores and activities, which included trimming hooves, we planted a 35' by 50' vegetable garden! My muscles are sure paying for it today. We spent last week preparing the soil, discing and tilling, and making rows. Cooper, who is two and a half, spent his time running up and down the rows with the occasional tumble, causing Grandpa and me to fix it. He had a blast though so I really didn't mind!
We planted greenbeans, yellow wax beans, lima beans, black eyed peas, purple hull peas, bell peppers (red, orange, and green), jalapenos, eggplant, yellow squash, zucchini, cucumber, watermelon, canteloupe, and tomato (homestead, roma, cherry, and yellow). I still need to plant some okra, but I think we are all set...and I will be canning a lot during the summer! I guess I'd better learn how to do that! We also have a container garden with oregano, basil, thyme, parsley, and rosemary! Let the weeding begin!
