our garden is sprouting! we are all so proud, especially Addie. she gets her shoes on and checks it every morning in her jammies to see how much everything has grown. it is such an exciting thing to see the sprouts coming up. such a relief and joy.
we used the Square Foot Gardening method (we bought this book and i recommend it to you if you are thinking of doing it this way)and are very pleased with how easy it was. i was shocked at the amount we could fit in our little box.
we planted squash, peas, white onions, scallions, lettuce, spinach, basil, jalapenos, banana peppers, tomatoes, bell peppers, dill, cilantro, and a few sunflowers for the girls. this season will be good for salsa:) i cant wait to try other things in the seasons to come.
next year we are planning to build another box and do more squash, and some watermelon, cantaloupe, and pumpkins, maybe some potatoes.
a little trick also that i didnt plan for, is to plant garlic by your tomatoes. it will keep the bugs away. you just get a bulb of garlic and plant one of the bulbs. double +, the bugs stay away and you get garlic.:)
i cant help but think of the new life i am carrying when i see all these new sprouts. its amazing how it all works. spring has brought us new life.
