I haven't posted a garden update for a while. This first year is definitely a learning year with the garden. Some of the stuff and how I planted it just isn't working at all -- and yet a bunch of other stuff is just growing like crazy. All of my squashes are in love with the soil mix we used. I already have zucchini growing out of my ears (so I bought this cute little recipe book). That garden box is all basically as tall as Stina. My peas were ok this year - not very many of them though. I have a feeling I'll be inundated by pumpkins and tomatoes. And I learned I planted too much lettuce (more than my family eats). The biggest problem is knowing when to harvest things and how. I let my broccoli go for too long and it just turned into flowers. I never knew all that green stuff you eat would turn into flowers - kinda cool. Just things I guess I'll learn more as I go.
