Its barely March and I find myself ready to plan the garden. It will be tiny this year but sadly will produce more than last I am sure. It better anyway. I still think the garden year of 2010 will forever live in my memory as the worst garden year ever.
This year we have two raised beds and I am going to plant some things along the fence and in pots out front. Not sure on the dimension of the beds but I am guessing 4 by 12 maybe. They are deep as well. They are in desperate need of some compost though. I just found out our new 4H group offers free compost to all members so I am super excited! Its horse, goat, chicken compost and their gardens look really great.
As for what to plant I have no idea! I have tons of seeds and am sure we will do the regulars of lettuce, carrots, onions, and tomatoes. The kids are going to grow some pumpkins for fair this year. I will also do peas, cucumbers, and possibly try some melons out front where its super sunny.
I am excited to start the seedlings in my new greenhouse. I finally figured out the roof situation I talked about in another post. Duct tape and some garden bamboo stakes have provided enough roof support that even the heavy downpours are not collecting in the roof. I need to start checking the night time temps in there so I know what I can start in there temperature wise.
Be ready for more garden posts as the weeks go on. I am really excited this year (every year? lol) and am going to get out my seeds, garden books, and paper to start planning very soon!
I hope you are enjoying the first week of March. Today is my youngest child's third birthday so I am off to make her birthday dinner, waffles! Enjoy your week and feel free to comment. I'd love to know what you are starting in your garden?
