Planting the Plot

This year I signed up for a plot at the gloucester Community Garden. The timing is off with by "bend over belly" be significanlty impaired by the coming of our daughter in July. Soon after that breasfeeding and general lack of sleep will likely take over. What does all this mean ofr teh plot? Well, that's where Alan comes in.

Alan grumbled extensively about having to plant the 7x7 metre plot. But after I drafted the garden plan and we got all of our seeds -I think his enthusiasm increased. Alan is a great implementer of ideas and plans. On our way out to the garden our neighbor Catherine volunteered to help she had never gardened and I guess figured it would be fun to try something new. So off we went with our green thumbs and gardening tools.

Although we battled bugs and the heat - our weee garden was planted and watered. I will have to post some pics as the plants begin to sprout. We planted:

Roma tomatoes, eggplant, Zuchinni, Pumpkin, peas, beans (yellow and green), and cucumbers.

We'll see how it all goes!
