We started planting our garden for this year at the end of March. We got a used tiller last year, so Ronnie tilled the soil and got it ready for me to plant.
The garden isn't quite as big as last year, but almost. So far, we have planted squash, okra, lettuce, cantaloupe, cucumber, green beans, watermelon, potatoes, and zucchini.
The chickens got out one day and ate some of my veggies that had sprouted up. Originally, we had planted onions and eggplant too. But, either those didn't come up, or the chickens ate them.
I clipped the chickens wings so they couldn't get out again, and replanted the things that were ate. I didn't replant the onions and eggplants, though. I used that place for something else.
Since they ate part of what I planted to begin with, not everything will come up at the same time, which in a way is good. We still have corn to plant and then we'll be done with the planting. The strawberries from last year came back and they are delicious!
Are you having a garden this year? If so, have you planted already?
