suncreek garden chronicles…houston we have L for lift off (a-z challenge)

suncreek garden chronicles…installment #6

I can hardly believe how fast our garden has taken off.  This is not my husbands first garden rodeo…however, this IS the first year to have a garden at our new place. 

The man with the plan has done a great job of scoping out the perfect spot for the garden.  It seems the garden is getting just the right amount of sun and shade.  The garden soil is a mix of premium blend and chicken manure.  As I mentioned in an earlier post my man with the plan had a water well dug and he is watering the garden with natural ground water. 

It seems as though all of the forethought and planning are paying off…the squash are the front-runners in the garden.  We should be picking, cooking and sharing squash in less than 2 weeks. 

The cucumbers, bell peppers and tomatoes are in second place.  However the limes are still in the race…only time will tell…stay tuned.

  1. Good luck with your garden veggies! I’m going to miss having a garden in the ground this year, but I can always plant things in pots.

    Thanks for stopping by my site and leaving a comment. I’ve been reading a few of your earlier posts. You are quite an encourager.

  2. That’s wonderful, Jeanne. So nice when our plans bear fruit . . . and veggies. :D

  3. Are you growing Bok Choy? I tried that for the first time, and it was like taking a drink of water!

  5. Looks good. You are so going to enjoy all of that fresh produce! Yumm..I’m jealous, but not enough to plant a garden! LOL

  6. The buds look healthy… Do share some photos when they are fully grown. Enjoy! :-)

  7. How wonderful to have food grow in the yard! I’ll have to figure out how to keep the squirrels from eating everything I try to grow, including my porch flowers, before I’d plant a thing.
