The Hayes Homestead Garden 2017

I'm a tad late posting this, but our garden is planted, y'all!!!

We spent almost the entire Mother's Day digging and planting.  Seven hours to be (almost) happy and excited to have it planted!!


I know you can't really see anything based on the above pictures, but trust me guys, there's plants and seeds all snug in there!

We went bigger this year - as we seem to do every year - and planted lots of goodies.  Some that we plant every year and a few new things, too!  We also started everything from seed this year - first time we've done that :)

This year we have planted:
  • Potatoes
  • Cabbage
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Beans
  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Radishes
  • Carrots
  • Onions
  • Tomatoes (Paste, Cherry, Canning, and Husk)
  • Bell Peppers (Orange, Yellow, Red, Green, and Purple)
  • Cayenne Peppers
  • Watermelon
  • Celery
  • Peas
  • Spinach
  • Corn
  • Cucumbers (pickling and regular)
  • Zucchini
  • Eggplant
  • Spaghetti Squash
  • Pumpkins
  • Lots of different herbs
We really tried to plant the veggies with companion plants in hopes of a productive harvest.  We planted way more than we need, but we figure that not all of the plants will make it plus we can give any extras away, feed them to the chickens, or feed our compost.


Now, we water, weed, and wait.  As the great Tom Petty says, "....waiting is the hardest part....."

Stay tuned!
