More Progress & More Sun

Another beautiful, warm day. I got up and went right down to the garden. I worked from 9-12:30 and got quite a bit done. I started by getting 12 more dahlias planted. Then I created 5 mini raised beds. In two of them I planted my 4 starts of "Canoe Creek Colossal" Cantaloupe. I have never successfully raised a full size cantaloupe and I can't believe this year, with its cool start, will be any better. But a girls gotta try!

After I got them planted and well watered in, I then planted three hills of "Chimiren" Winter Squash. As I stated in an earlier post, this is a new variety for me and I am anxious to see how it grows and how it tastes. After dinner I went back down to the garden and worked for about another hour. With some help I got 8 more dahlia planted. The total now stands at 39 in and 159 to go!
