If you want to reap the spoils in August and September, you have to do the time in spring. So this holiday weekend, the garden will be finished. We've tried putting it in before Memorial Day weekend, but it seems to grow slower. As soon as June hits with lots of sun and warm weather, it catches up fast. So, it's really a wash. The job, itself, is fun and some hard work at the same time. Breaking it up through the long weekend makes it easier. We always seem to say, it'll be a bit smaller this summer, but in the end it always about the same size. It's not really big, but with all the flower gardens around here, it'll keep us on our toes for the next three months. Of course, throw in Mr. Groundhog and his family, and you never know what you'll get. Thank goodness for my havahart trap and plenty of places far away to dump the fat critters. Wish me luck.
