The Garden

The garden is nearly in. We have only four more beds to plant. Currently there are 18 beds planted. Below is a list of what is currently planted in order of abundance.

Burpee Big Boy Tomatoes
Italian Basil
Burpless Cucumbers
Red Romaine
Butter Crunch Lettuce
Gypsy Yellow Peppers
Sweet Chili Peppers
Lola Rosa Lettuce
Kentucky Blue Beans
Hot Banana Peppers
Ruby Red Cabbage
Stonehead Cabbage
Serrano Peppers
Brussel Sprouts
Habanero Peppers
English Thyme
Golden Lemon Thyme
Lime Basil
Cinnamon Basil
Bloody Butcher Tomatoes
Acorn Squash
Butternut Squash

Now we have to keep the critters out. Large and small. I couldn't help but notice the huge deer tracks going through the beds before we planted and the bunnies love the tender lettuce. This year we've doubled security and enclosed the lettuce beds with another fence. We already have one encompassing the entire garden that in years past didn't do the job.
