I had some unexpected surgery on the 6th of this month. I'm still on the mend, but I'm doing fine. My son Jonathan knew I needed the garden tilled so I could get my seeds put in. He came over and tilled it for me, even though it was 93 degrees outside. I sure appreciated his help!
This is the tiller my wife bought me three years or so ago for just $199.00 from Home Depot. What a deal!
After the tilling was done the next item to check out was the irrigation source for the crops. This required an expert's evaluation of my system. Jonathan's almost two year old daughter Celie was the expert I selected. It's a good thing it was 93 degrees!
Her question was: "Is it cold?"
Here are a couple of shots of the bean rows after I finished preparing them for the seeding. Notice the wide row bed. I used this idea last year after the fact, but this year, I plan to water my beans throughout the gardening season by flooding the row beds. I won't be doing overhead watering of the beans this year.
That's all the news about our garden for this posting. Thanks to all my visitors and commentors for stopping by.
Have a great vegetable gardening day and take the time to teach a child about growing vegetables. What you share with them will be remembered later in life if not now. It might make the difference in them becoming a wonderful vegetable gardener!
