Garden: Week whatever this is

We went out to the garden Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights because we still had 2/3 of the plot left to plant and the weeds were creeping and the poor things we had planted needed some love and looser soil. Over those days, we managed to get two rows completely weeded, tilled and planted with black eyed peas, popcorn and green beans. I also planted some delicata squash seeds that I saved from last year’s volunteer plant that sprang up out of the compost.

Greg’s going out tonight to water and then we’re taking a hiatus until Monday. We still have a lot of garden to plant–purple hull peas (as far away from the black eyed variety as we can get), some regular potatoes, an [one, seriously, one] okra plant, some slicing cucumbers, luffa, the odd dried beans a coworker gave me that may or may not be viable, and probably something[s] else. If I can find tomatillo seeds or starts, I’d love to plant one of those too.

We’re insane.
