My Life of Travels and Adventures: July 2017

Garden Update

10 July 2017

So since my last garden update a lot has changed.  Mainly everything has been transplanted and is growing.  
The last two weeks of May were spend transplanting.  A lot.  

Peas on the fence panel and two rows of tomatoes in the background

All of these paste tomatoes were grown from seed.  I transplanted 50 paste and 10 beefsteak tomato plants.  We lost a couple of the paste plants in the transplant. 
I ended up getting a few more fence poles to help the paste tomatoes stay upright.  



Here are potatoes have yet to sprout.  We have three rows of different potatoes in the foreground.  

Despite the dog and kids constantly trampling the onion bed the onions actually took off.  
We also have a couple rows of corn and sunflowers on the far side of the peas.  

As well as celery, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, oregano and spinach behind the onion bed. 
We have harvested spinach several times and peas a couple times so far.

Garden Tool Organizer

06 July 2017

This spring/early summer has been all about the garden.  And this latest project is no different.  
For Easter the kids both got a set of kid sized garden tools. Those tools combined with my own garden tools and then the hose, sprinkler and hose nozzle made for a very messy garden.  

I knew we needed a designated spot for the tools but wasn't sure how to keep them contained.  After a little pinterest looking and then surveying of supplies we already had on hand... This pallet garden tool organizer came to life.  
We ran a couple long screws through the back of the pallet and into the fence pole to hold everything in place.

I had 4 small garden tools and the kids each had a little kids shovel (Pink Princess Shovel/ Batman Shovel) so we just used 6 long screws to create hooks.  For the hose we used one of these square screw in bike hooks that we had in the garage.
 When I tilled the garden, I added this little section up front.  Mostly because we had a tree removed there and the ground around the stump has yet to grow anything on it.  Not it is covered in hay and a perfect spot for the garden tools to live.
