Home Garden Update

This past weekend we purchased some organic mulch from Swindler and Sons in Wilmington and Purple Ruffle Basil from McCarty Gardens in Sabina. 
We laid the mulch around more developed plants--mostly, the garlic, onions, shallots, turnips, beets, broccoli, and some spinach. The mulch will help mitigate some tedious weeding, and retain moisture in the soil. 
With our last frost date approaching, we have been mending beds on either side of the current Spring bed to prepare for our summer plants. In addition to the obvious tomatoes (and lots of them) that all gardeners grow, we are currently planning on spicy peppers, melons, beans, egg plant, squash, cucumbers, and more. 
Below are some updated pictures of the garden. Stay tuned for more.
