Woohoo! We got our summer garden in this weekend. Last year we waited so long it was difficult to find any plants. Since we get a CSA Farm share, we didn't buy too much, but wanted a few extras and thought it would be a great learning experience for James.

We planted two husky tomatoes, one cherry tomato, some snap peas, lettuce, and a strawberry plant. My mom gave us some mint, yam, pumpkin, and gourd plants. We'll see what happens. I gave up on green peppers. The last two years they've been small and some bug likes to chew holes in them. I'd love to grow cucumbers but I don't like the beetle it attracts that kills everything else off.

We got our first farm share on Thursday. We got 2 lbs of asparagus, green onions, rhubarb, and a cob of popcorn. I've never cooked with rhubarb before and tomorrow I'm planning on baking rhubarb bread. I can't wait to try it!

We're going out of town for a couple of weeks, so we have to get our garden in before Friday. Good for you for being on top of it!
