In the month of April, I planted:Onions
The reason we decided to try the straw bale garden method is because it was mentioned that there aren’t as many weeds. I don’t know if the farmer who sold us straw actually gave us a few bales of hay or what, but we’ve got some major rye grass coming up!
I had to pick as much of the grass out as possible to ensure our pea pods would grow properly. I will admit, it wasn’t nearly as bad as weeds that usually grow in our gardens. But it is annoying to see another blade that needs pulled amongst the beautiful pea pod sprouts.
Since the middle of March, I had wanted to plant the onion seeds indoors. I had it on my to-do list forever. Mid-April, I decided to just plant them in the ground and hope for the best! Onions take for-ever to grow, according to the package. 120 days! This is the area I planted 3 packets of onion seeds.
That’s all I have to report on the garden. Here are some pictures of other fruits that are growing around the yard:
