Planting Decisions

April 21, 2012

 Country Garden Planted April 1 2012

With the weather as unusual as it has been over the past couple of years and the limited amount of time we have to spend at the Country Garden right now, we made the decision to plant the garden in Seneca during Spring Break and then to pray it would grow. Once my favorite garden muscle, sweet husband and son, finished tilling the garden plot I got busy planting.

We were pleasantly surprised to discover how nice the soil is in that part of the property. I had fears that it would be solid red clay and nearly impossible to plant this year but my fears were misplaced. I guess all the years of leaves that have fallen from the large trees at the edge of this plot have helped as has the fact that we’ve used that area to burn brush piles several times in the past. At this point only time will tell, but I have high hopes for this garden area going into the future.

This year we planted Sunflowers, Popcorn, Onions (not the whole 225 but close), Red Warty Thing Pumpkins, Jarrahdale Pumpkins, Lakota Squash, Celeraic and Gremlin Gourds. My garden helper is going over Monday so we will see if there is any progress. I’m hoping that both frost and critters have missed the garden so far!
