Does a Watched Garden Grow?

It’s that time of year again, when the danger of frost passes by and the kids and I look longingly at our barren garden box.  Last year we planted corn, squash, cucumbers, peppers, celery, & strawberries.  The best producers were our cucumbers & squash…the celery grew OK but ended up with a horrible taste that I can’t account for.  (A hot July?)  The stawberries sent runners all over the place, bloomed prettily, but only produced a few puny fruits.  The corn was ruined by a freak hailstorm, darn it….they took up half the space in our box, and we didn’t get to enjoy any of them!!!

This year shows promise for the berries–they’re already in the early stages of bushels of strawberries.   We’re skipping the corn and Brooke has staked out what veggies she wants on her side.  Onions, peppers & carrots.  I’m growing cukes, tomatoes & more peppers. 

We spent Mother’s Day out measuring & planting….is it too early to expect green shoots?  We watch for them every day.  I don’t have the greenest thumb, and just the fact that I bought the seeds almost dooms them to die a tragic veggie death under some dry dirt that I forgot to water properly.
