It is windy and pouring rain today; I think I managed to spend about 15 minutes outside this morning before the rain chased me and the pups back inside. Checked the weather forecast and it looks like the highs are going to be in the 30's for the next week, so I dont guess I will be doing a whole lot in the yard.
So today I have been working on making a digital copy of the vegetable garden plans: it is a bit smaller on GG than what it was in paint, but I think it might give you all the basic idea.
The dashed line on the right signifies where I stopped measuring. The vegetables we will be growing that aren't illustrated here are the snow peas, lettuces, radishes and spinach that are in the lettuce bed by the house as well as the three varieties of pumpkin, loofa gourd, watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe. also, half the corn crop got cut off.
Now, in an attempt to escape the dreary weather and wintertime blues I am going to post the prettiest pictures of the vegetable varieties I will be growing as I can find. I miss the warm and the sun and opening the windows and screen doors to let fresh air in.
