<p><span style="font-size:16px;"> <span style="color:#2f4f4f;">I finally got the time, and the weather to plant my garden this weekend! I headed out Saturday to our local farmstand/ plant stand .. and got some great veggies and herbs.  I have  4 kinds of tomatoes in,2 kinds of cabbage, lettuces, zuchs and 2 kinds of  cukes.  I already had the bean and peas planted and they are on the way. I also got parsley, basil and golden sage to add to my little herb patch. </span></span></p>
<p><span style="color:#2f4f4f;"><span style="font-size:16px;">   My garden was tilled and I added a nice layer of compost dirt to it. We had another notable  crop of winter rocks in there too.  DS may be  16 but he still enjoys splashing them into the pond.   I have covered most all the garden space with black plastic. ( Mine is cheap.. water pipe covers that I slice  up the side - 2lengths covers the whole place.  I do SO love not having to worry about weeds.</span></span></p>

<p><span style="color:#2f4f4f;"><span style="font-size:16px;">     Who has a garden ? What's in it ?  I may need help with the peas.. I have the base for an old yard windmill thing for them to climb.. but I think I need to put some strings down and around it to let them wrap on ????   I keep thinking the beans need to climb .. but I have bush beans.. so they shouldn't need a trellis .. or do they?  I'll try to post pictures soon.</span></span></p>

<p>We got ours in the week BEFORE Victoria Day which is a real gamble here in Alberta.  But it was a move that I think will pay off.  It's been rainy ever since and we'd likely not have gotten the garden in yet.</p>

<p>What do we have?  Let's see.  In addition to the Rasps and the Strawbs, in herbs we have chives and dill, we have onions and garlic, we have lettuce and snap peas and carrots and beets, likely to have zucchini and maybe squash (not decided yet), we dispensed with the potatoes, not because they don't grow but because I can't eat 'em.  we do have broccoli though.</p>
