Some of the vegetables that I started in the house didn’t survive the transplant to the raised bed, so I ended up planting seeds too. I realized that I just couldn’t keep them in the house any longer so I started watching the extended weather forecast and decided there’s a good chance I’ll be safe of any frost.
The squirrels got into the bed the first night it was up, before I’d planted anything. They were just digging in the empty dirt being nosy. I haven’t seen any holes in the dirt since I’ve planted though, thank goodness.
Considering this is my first attempt at growing anything other than perennials, it’s going okay so far. Although when I asked my son to water them the other night he told me “sure but it’s futile”. WHAT!!! Is he really insulting my efforts to grow good organic food for my family? Yeah, he was (he’s always honest and doesn’t really have much of a filter for other people’s feelings). However, after a few days of watering and sunshine they seem to be perking up.
I know that the green beans are going to get huge, but I have plan to help them vine down to the ground. We’ll have to wait and see if my idea will work.
I’m still entertaining the idea of Dwarf Blueberries and Raspberries, although I have a neighbor that lost her Raspberries from the hard winter we had.
More to come in the next few weeks. Happy Planting~Bam
