Making good progress in the garden - Beds #1 and #2 are complete now, and the automatic water system is all set up in them.
I didn't get pictures of the packets, but I put in these squash:
Squash - Alexandria, Johnny's Selected Seeds (a pale green squash)
Squash - Gentry, Johnny's Selected Seeds (a yellow squash)
Next up, a few rows of beans:
Rockport, Johnny's Selected Seeds
Carson, Territorial Seeds (a yellow wax bean)
And I finished off that row with some Huckleberry plants that I started in the greenhouse. I planted 12 seeds, but only 6 made it. They are looking very healthy, though, so hope to get some fruit on these!
Today I planted cucumbers:
Holland White - Seed Savers Exchange
Dragon's Egg - Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
Double Yield - Totally Tomatoes (a freebie that came with my tomato seed order)
Muncher - SeedsNow.com
Parisienne - Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
Snow White - Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
Chantenay Red Core - Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds
and 6 square foot of some carrot seeds that had fallen into the plastic bag I keep them in last year and I have no idea what kind they are, so it will be a surprise!
Magenta Magic Orach I'm trying out this year -- here it is after only two days. Instant gratification, right!? Looking forward to trying this.
I've potted up several of these - the Tango Lettuce seed I got as a freebie also. I've grown it before and we really like it.
And finally, the purple bearded iris has started to bloom!! I look forward to seeing these every year, they bring with them many good memories of my parents. These came from their house, and I've spread them around some on the property. I'll have better pictures in a few days when they really burst open. Lovely!
