How Will My Garden Grow?

Some people have families, others careers.

I got a little carried away at the garden center this year. I planted a garden of 20 tomato plants, 20 heads of lettuce, 12 pepper plants and a variety of herbs - basil, cilantro, dill, parsley, and lovage (I think, it may actually be another kind of parsley as I lost the tag).

Getting all of those plants in the ground was one thing, complete with a little surprise that hopped out of one of the plastic containers of dill (honestly, how did he fit in there). Then there was the mulching of straw, causing my allergies to go ballistic. But for the rest of the summer - or 60-75 days till ripe - I'll be watering when weather conditions demand it. Thankfully, the pond is an easy and close source - algae is good for plants, right?

That's what I'm doing this summer. Watering, watering, watering. Stay tuned!
