Garden in Progress

The Garden is really starting to take off....I'm harvesting zucchini and there are little peppers on the plants. Soon we will have the fixings for some awesome salsa and tomato sauces. Last night I planted the last of our winter squash seedlings and pulled up all of the corn plants. Between the merciless crows pulling the baby corn out of the ground and the chickens eating the tops of anything left standing, it was in pretty bad shape. I've decided to call it a total loss for the season and replace it with winter squash instead. We will be working on our drip system this weekend as the watering by hand is taking up a lot of time and causing me to be late to work most mornings. We will also be putting a heavy layer of straw mulch on everything to help keep down the weeds.
