2011 Vegetable Garden

weeding

This weekend we finally got to do some gardening, to get our vegetable garden together.
The boys were huge helpers!

We spent in the garden all day on Saturday. We planted zucchini, 3 different types of cucumbers, a variety of tomatoes (sizes & kinds), Romaine lettuce, and Prize Head lettuce. The seeds that we will sow right into the ground, will be done shortly as we ran out of earth.

I am so excited to watch our garden grow this summer, as I have done the last 3 summers (2008, 2009 & 2010). I hope we have success again this summer.

Today, unfortunately, went we went outside to BBQ dinner, we caught a rabbit running away. He ate 12 (all) of my romaine lettuces. I'm quite pissed about that, let me tell you. Tomorrow, we'll be gathering supplies to make a chicken wire fence to go around my garden. I think it's the same rabbit that was living in our yard last summer, except last summer he didn't touch our romaine or anything at all last summer. This year, he devoured all of it. We would have had lettuce to make Caesar salad next week if he hadn't eaten it all up. Sneaky little fellow.

Yeah, critters are tough that way. We have the same problem, except it might not only be bunnies.

We are looking into fencing options too. My main problem with fencing is accessibility - I want critters out, but me and Evie to be able to get in. Haven't figured that one out yet.

Yay for veggie gardens! I think I may have started my tomato seeds too late this year. They're just SO little!!! Wondering if they're going to have time to grow any fruit...

That sneaky little rabbit! Looks like you're off to a good start! We don't really have much action going on in our garden, because of the cool and rainy spring we are having. Hopefully the weather will turn around!
