I am still in love with gardening. Weeding a bed is so very calming. Eating food I grew is so rewarding. And being able to give fresh produce to my friends is so fun.
I have learned so much so far. I am only about half way through the season, but I have a list of things that I want to do differently next year.
-Stagger the planting of the lettuce so that it is not all ready at the same time. A little lettuce goes a long way and you can't freeze it.
-Make more garden stake markers. They were so fun and easy.
-Let each kid have their own little section of the garden were they grow whatever they want.
-Plant more flowers. I love breaking up veggie beds with flowers.
-Plant zinnia's with bigger heads for more pop.
-Line and mulch the paths in the garden (I hope to do this ASAP).
-Plant way more cilantro and parsley.
-Stagger the cilantro in two week increments. Mine is bolting and I want more.
-Do a better job staking the tomato's as they grow. They are out of control.
-Plant two cucumber plants and that is ALL! I don't even like them.
-Plant more green beans. LOTS more.
