After an already late dinner due to softball practice and a track meet, I decided to go ahead and plant a bunch of seeds in the garden. It was getting pretty dark by the time I finished. I did however manage to plant the following: zucchini, green beans, cucumbers, yellow squash, sunflowers, lima beams as well as a second planting of spinach and salad bowl lettuce.
This year I have been sprinkling in some fertilizer along with the seeds to give the growing plants a bit more nutrients. I figure the soil in the beds is probably getting a bit tired and depleted over the years. I try mixing in yard waste and other organic material but I don’t think it is probably contributing as much as the plants are taking out.
