This summer, I have been doing more gardening than dancing or knitting or sewing. This is our second year with our vegetable garden and the lessons we learned last year are paying off. Most significantly, we are using cages for the tomatoes instead of stakes, we increased the space between plans for easier harvesting, and we used taller cages for the cucumbers.
So far, we have mostly been harvesting cucumbers, lettuce, green beans, and zucchini (and a few jalapeno peppers). Delicious. It brings us (me and Mr. HipDroppedStitches) such joy to bring vegetables in from the garden for dinner in the evening. We are looking forward to the tomatoes, peas, onions, and carrots!
