Very bad Gardener

I have to admit, I am a BAD BAD gardener. I have YET to till up my garden. I should have had potatoes in April 3rd. Did I do it? Nope. Want to know my excuse I used? It rained....from 2 am til 7am with the rest of the day sunny....but it rained. It might have been mushy...wet...the tiller would be all gunked up! rriiiiight I wanted to sit, drink coffee, and fight the people at Walmart for parking spaces.

So I am going to have to do it THIS weekend when according to the moon, is NOT a good idea. Oh well. It was up to 87 degrees yesterday. WOW! I stayed inside because I was sick...booo. But I do have some plants going. I am seriously thinking of planting these babies either this weekend or the next. They are just getting too big and are falling over.

These are mostly my crockneck squash and Table Queen Squash

This is a bigger picture of what is growing but the other things are mostly tomatoes. I have 2 pumpkins growing and a cantaloupe. I couldn't get any other cantaloupes or any watermelons to sprout. I am going to try again though. I really really want more cantaloupes and watermelons.

Anyhoo, I gotta get this thing going! I was suppose to have radishes, carrots, and spinach going by now! I do have some broccoli and cabbage growing in the back yard. A lot slower than I thought it would be but I am just shocked they are growing!


  1. I had a hard time with my watermelon last year, too. Don't worry about the timing. Stuff will get planted. No stressing.

  2. People are beginning to get antsy for planting around here, but there will be more cold spells - i'm sure of it. Just do one thing at a time, it'll all get done.
