You may have noticed that my time online has been much less these days. I have been obsessed with gardening and trying to read as much as possible to decide how to set up my plot. Also, I have been working more the last couple of weeks, causing me to choose wisely how I spend my time.
Is anyone else gardening this year or has in the past? If so, I would love to hear any stories, tips and thoughts you have on your experience.
The weather has been driving me crazy! I finally put some cold crop seeds in this week (it's a little late, I know), but I am still afraid that the wind or rain will rip them away. Despite these concerns, I did it anyway and am determined to just pop in a few more seeds if in doubt! We have plenty of seeds this year (I may have gone overboard). Really, I will just be happy when something green starts sprouting up for me (fortunately we do have some Egyptian Walking Onions standing tall!).
I'm trying out the square foot garden method and this is my current set-up:
Adam and I blocked out four squares and covered them with newspaper. We now have one square topped (it's a slow process right now) with four bags of topsoil, one bag of vermiculite and a wee bit of compost. Our compost really isn't "garden ready," but I couldn't help throwing a little in.
Here's one more image to show all the seeds in their places topped with a little vermiculite.
Soon to come: A few reviews and FOOD (of course)!
