Zucchini, an Out-of-Control Pumpkin Plant and Rats: An Update on Suburban Vegetable Gardening

I’ve been MIA for the past few months as I’ve been up to my eyeballs in post-season Little League baseball.  Now that the Little League season is winding down, I’m excited to get back to The Lady DIY!  I’m way overdue to post an update on the progress of our suburban vegetable garden; we’re now about two and a half months in, and my intention was to post every month or so.  (You know what they say about good intentions.)

An update on suburban vegetable gardening: lots of zucchini, one out-of-control pumpkin plant, and some tomato-loving rats.

Considering that I haven’t had much time to devote to our little garden, there are some great things happening.  We got lucky this year with the weather and actually got a few weeks of spring.  (Usually, it feels like we go from winter to 100+ degree heat within about a two-week span.)  The extra few weeks of gradually warming weather allowed the plants to get established before the heat of the summer arrived.  It also helps that my mom is an amazing gardening and has been putting in time while I’ve been MIA.
