Spring Veggie Garden....

As you might remember, we started our Spring veggie garden at the end of March. Things have really started moving along in the veggie patch!  As you can see, we have our big garden very organized with specific areas for veggies and straw paths for walking.  The straw helps cut down on the weeding, which will be a big deal later this Summer!

My pea army is all ready to get down to business.....

Spinach, mixed lettuce, radishes (which we've started eating!), and kale.  Can you spot my blurry garden buddy in the upper right?


Here's my other garden buddy...Capt'n Gus (the feral cat I trapped by accident in December) ...the most awesomeness, sidekick garden cat you could ask for.  No really, he's better behaved outside than the Hound dog.  Comes when called, stays in the yard, follows me around, and doesn't bother the chickens.  Sgt thinks it's the weirdest thing to watch him follow me around the yard as I do various chores.  To be perfectly honest, I also find it very weird how much he has attached himself to me. 

Lots more yet to plant.  We'll be laying out plans for our Summer garden this weekend, which includes...tomatoes, basil, squash, watermelon, cucumbers, peppers, egg plant, cilantro, zucchini,  beans...the list goes on.  Then in July we'll plan and plant for our Fall garden.  But I don't really want to think about that right now!  I'd much rather enjoy my Spring veggies and eagerly anticipate the strawberry harvest coming soon!! May has got to be my favorite month of the year.
