Lucky Crickets

We had a spring garden that didn't do so well.  Our watermelon and zucchini never came up.  Our corn didn't come up.  We replanted it.  The second time it came up but never got higher than a foot.  Our pepper transplants never produced much of anything.  We did get tomatoes, but not much.

We wanted to do better this go around.  We heard rumor that you plant corn on September 15th --not a day before, not a day after.  So we picked a larger plot of land and planted our corn on September 15th.  We also added fertilizer to our lovely Arizona dirt and planted carrots, kale, cabbage, lettuce, spinach, beans, peas, and broccoli.

There was mud involved.  It was a fun time for The Boy.

So it's been five days since we planted.  I laugh every time I go water the garden.  Crickets start evacuating the garden plot.  I joked and called them our lucky crickets.  Little did I know they actually were!  We have corn sprouts up already!

We're excited.  This garden better produce like the dickens.
