Our Garden

This weekend was a busy one, but I was careful not to overdo it! As of yesterday we have the biggest garden, I've ever planted!

Currently in the ground:
10 tomato plants (4 brandywine, 4 celebrity, and 2 unkown)
4 acorn squash plants
2 pumpkin plants
2 pole beans from my aunt
several tomato seedlings from my aunt
2 grape vines from last year that may or may not grow this year
several green onions from last years crop

Currently in containers:
4 sweet bell pepper plants
4 jalapeno plants
4 cucumber plants (bush variety)
lettuce seed

Waiting to be planted:
2 sunflower plants from my aunt
3 blackberry poles from my aunt (poles, starts, shoots???)
4 cherry tomato plants

I still have more seeds that I could and should plant, but I'm beginning to run out of room! I think I will definitely try to put some more beans in around the 2 I've already planted. And I plan to plant the lettuce seeds successively.

I need to weed more of the front garden so that I can plant the last 4 tomatoes. I'm hoping to have the energy to work on it just a little bit each night this week. And once that is done, I can plant some more of the seeds that are just waiting.

How is your garden going? Are you still in the planning stages, or lucky enough to be bearing some food already? We are being gifted with rhubarb from friends and family, but I think that's about all that's growing here.
