Green Thumb

My thumbs were mostly brown this Saturday from all the dirt  I moved, but my garden has been started.

So far I have strawberries (Mike planted those), potatoes and onions in my main garden.  I also transplanted some rhubarb from my mom's garden and started an asparagus patch, which will take a few year to become established.

I'm planning to also plant tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, squash, cabbage, and jalapenos when it gets warmer.  What do you like to plant in your garden? Is there something else I should plant that I haven't listed? I would like to plant lettuce of some sort, but the leaves get those slugs on them and I would rather not plant lettuce then have to pick off  black slimy things. 

This big guy wanted to be planted with the potatoes, but I tried to keep my distance. You never know when they are going to jump. On a side note, I also saw more worms on Saturday than I care to see in an entire year.  I just had to keep reminding myself that they are good for the garden.

Happy Gardening


  1. Zucchini - for bread and chocolate chip cake!

  2. I agree. I need some zucchini and I have a neighbor who makes the best zucchini bread. Maybe she will give me the recipe.
