Finally started vegetable gardening

After fits and starts due to mechanical difficulties, we started our garden a bit later than we wanted to. Finally last weekend we did get some things planted. My husband was kind and just went and bought me a new tiller and cultivator. We had the old tiller to shop 3 times to no avail. I told him I thought they made lovely Mother’s Day presents:)


this is a new area so first year of digging will be the worst. Looking forward to next year already, as we will be able to get an earlier start (fingers crossed for weather). So far we have black raspberries started, peas, tomatoes, potatoes, corn, and three sisters (corn, with beans and squash planted in the mounds), green peppers, green beans and a few other things planted. We will hopefully be finishing up the other things this weekend.

And then the three of us!


Will keep you updated as the season progresses. I am so thankful for this space to garden in!! Now I don’t have to try to veg garden in my shady garden at my own home. It was a lesson in futility! lol

And thank you for all of you who sent prayers and good energy toward my friend Anke during the horrible tornadoes in the south recently. I have heard from her and she and her family are fine. The tornado devastated 80% of her neighborhood, but thankfully, missed her street, so her home was saved also! xxxx

Herbal and Honey Hugs to all who visit Comfrey Cottages

Leslie, I am really happy for you. Looks like your garden is going to be wonderful and I can't wait to watch everything grow on your blog. Thank you so much for your positive vibes, thoughts and prayers. I definitely feel like somebody was watching over us that day and I am so thankful to everybody that held us close to their hearts during that time. Thank you my friend!!

So exciting! Nothing like watching seeds sprout and seeing them mature before your eyes and eventually end up on the table. Always amazing! I'm sending you many good gardening wishes :)
