Farmville DC 3.0

The third chapter in our gardening adventures is well underway. The hard part was done last year so this Spring planting was a piece of cake in comparison. Tomatoes (with rebar supported cages...a lesson learned), beans, peas, lots of herbs, squash, eggplant, peppers, okra, and kale are the ground and Pimientos de PadrĂ³n, my favorite, will be planted soon. Gone this year are cucumbers due to the ridiculously lethal cucumber beetle.

Despite the extreme winter all of the blueberry bushes are hanging in there. The strawberries planted last year are growing like crazy so now we have a decent size strawberry patch which is already bearing quite a bit of fruit.

Stay tuned.
