Saturday on the Farm

Saturday on the Farm

We got some more things planted in the garden this week. The spinach, lettuces, peas, green beans and onions are up and growing. We had 2 tomato plants given to us, and D bought some more. He also bought 12 bell pepper plants, and so many cabbage plants that I lost count. It was over 20. Guess we won’t run out of cabbage, good thing I can freeze it!

You can see the cardboard that we have spread out on the end of the garden. This is where we plant all the squashes, melons and other plants that take up a lot of room. We will cut holes in the cardboard to plant. The cardboard stops all the weeds. You can also use newspapers and hay. We’ve done that before and it works well.

The iris’s are blooming in the flower garden on the end of the house. This kind only blooms once. You can barely see them, but there are purple iris’s among the yellow ones. Just ignore the weeds. :)

I found an awesome website the other day you might like, Organic Gardening and Homesteading. I found so much useful information there. This site has a wealth of information for everyone.

Ok, it’s time for the Saturday on the Farm Carnival!

  1. Sorry I didn't get a chance to link up. I'll try in a couple weeks when things slow down. 1 quick question: This will be my first year attempting to plant anything from the cabbage family. Do you dust your cabbage family veggies and if so what do you use?

  2. We don't always have trouble with cabbage bugs, but we have dusted in the past. I don't remember off had what we used. I'll have to look it up. We didn't use a pesticide, we bought something that was a bacteria, that killed the bugs when they ate it.
    Hope to see you Saturday on the Farm!
