Memorial Planting #2

Potatoes growing!

Tomatoes staked and surrounded by straw.  Grow tomatoes, Grow!

The field after barley was harvested.

The garden is 98% planted. There is about 20-25 cubic feet left to plant a few more items.
We need to till up a tiny bit more area if we want to have more green beans.

Margaret lost tooth #2-- picture kind of blurry- but that might not be a bad thing.

The kids were excited to get to the farm and play in the barley.  They had pushed down areas of the barley and made all sorts of paths and "houses" in the field.  Imagine their disappointment as we pulled up to the field and saw that it was all cut down.  It was fun to watch the tractor harvesting but not as fun as playing in the field.

The cucumbers, green beans, soup beans, broccoli, zucchini, eggplant, sesame were planted this weekend.  Lots of varieties of all of those.  I'll list the varieties in coming posts.

I'll be away for the next weekend for work so Mike will need to take a few new pictures.  The potatoes are getting pretty big!
