Michael went scuba diving today at Folsom Lake. Emily and Amanda came over and we planted the summer garden. We should have gotten an earlier start but that’s another story. The temperature topped out at 90 degrees this afternnoon and plants were wilting fast.
Mandy and I planted while Emily followed us with the watering can.
Here’s what the garden looked like when we got done planting.
We used transplants for everything except carrots. I bought seven tomato plants and only one was labeled determinate or indeterminate. That mattered to me when it came to placement in the beds. We researched online and got the information. Mandy and I wondered what we would have done before we had the internet. I guess we would have looked it up in the encyclopedia or called the nursery. We were glad to have the internet. There was wonderful information about all our varieties including the heirlooms. I have not had much luck with heirloom tomatoes but I just can’t seem to stop trying. They are so very unique in color, flavor, and shape. Maybe this will be a good year for heirloom tomatoes.
We tried to take our picture with the self timer. Then we went swimming.
It was a fun day. I will love going out every morning to see what’s growing. I have a feeling it will be a jungle out there soon enough.
