Monday Report – Week 19

I have a garden every year.

Usually a small garden, because finding time to get a garden planted is not an easy task.


So my spring garden is the only one that gets planted.

Just last week I was told that friends of ours are planting their late garden.



Late garden?

You mean I can plant……… AGAIN?!

They have replanted corn, green beans, tomatoes…..

Said they do it every year.

I¬†consulted the Farmer’s Almanac, and right now the time is right for planting above ground crops.

So guess what The Captain and I did last Monday?

That’s right,¬†we pulled out the dying stalks and vines and started tilling.


By the way, I love my Troy-Bilt tiller, too!

And on Tuesday we replanted corn, green beans, pumpkins, cucumbers, sunflowers, birdhouse gourds and squash.

I had no idea that I could replant my garden all in the same growing season.

I usually replant cucumbers in July, but this year I hadn’t had the time. And figured it was too late.

I knew the season is longer here, but I didn’t realize just how long.

Never thought about it in a “I can replant the whole garden” kinda way.


In West Virginia, where I was raised, we had one planting season. And you had better get it in on time.

I am SO excited to have a second chance.


By Sunday, most everything had broken through the soil.



I am loving this!


And corn, too!


Wish me luck with my new children of the dirt!

Maybe I’ll actually get to can some green beans and freeze some corn. Oh yeah, and maybe make some pickles, too.

And you thought the Monday Garden Report would be ending soon.
