My Vegetable Garden

This Saturday we were blessed with sunshine after a long time of rain and bad weather. The first thing came to my mind was to go to the local garden center and buy the plants I need for my garden and plant them before the next rain starts. This is my 4th year of gardening and unlike the first two years that I was focused on the flowers. This is my second year of planting vegetables and greens for my family and I love it. Organic gardening is easy, you just have to garden regularly. That is weeding, looking for slugs and snails to pick, picking old leaves, cleaning up the plants, feeding and watering on time. Of course using a good organic food is one of the main keys to get good results. Here are a few of my plant which I’m planning to keep a record of and post it here periodically.

Just a quick report that one of the cucumbers are not feeling well. The slugs had part of the stem for dinner last night 🙁 But the rest of the plant are fine. I planted 4 Zucchini, 2 eggplant, 4 cherry tomato, 1 rosemary (I had a huge bush which died in the snow storm couple of years ago), 1 swiss chard and 1 Radicchio which I think it’s not enough.

It’s been a busy but fun weekend. I love gardening it’s therapeutic for me.

Until later,

  1. Your garden looks AMAZING!! We have a garden as well, but we recieved SO much rain this year, that the veggies didn’t grow as bis as I would have liked. Do you scorch (I think that’s what you call it….to freeze them) as well for the fall and winter months. I do it with my yellow beans. Mmmm.
