|Digging a carrot and radish |
patch in early spring
This year I am not planting any squash plants since I have tried without much success the past few years and they always end up with some sort of disease where they do not produce fruit and then die off mid-way through the growing season. Last summer I planted about half my garden with various types of squash plants and ended up with one pumpkin -- which at least was a great pumpkin!
Instead this summer I am focusing on what actually grows best: flowers, peas, corn, peppers, carrots, radishes, basil, and a few other plants.

|Now that I have a real fence around my garden I planted more peas this year.|
