I can not believe it has been almost 2 years since we moved to Kansas. Last year it was about June when I decided I wanted to plant a garden. Alisha and Chloe were here and we very quickly threw together a garden in a day. It was fun and it was a great adventure that ended with a wonderful delicious bounty. I was kind of surprised it did so well because I had not ever had a garden. I think part of the reason it turned out so well was because the soil had not been planted before and was not stripped of its nutrients. Whatever the reason, I was extremely pleased with my first year as a gardener. The only thing I would change was the plant date. I planted late and I had a hard time keeping the veggies cool and watered when the temps were 110 !! So, this year I decided that I was going to give it a try again and add a few new veggies. The new things I planted this year are butter nut squash, snap beans and pumpkins. I would love to have lots of pumpkins to decorate with for the fall, but the last couple of years pumpkins have been so expensive, I just couldn't justify buying them for decorating. I planted 3 different kinds of pumpkins. I also have planted are zuccini and yellow squash. I have some extra room in the garden, so I am going to probably add some more veggies like carrots.
