Isn’t it exciting when your daydreams become reality?
Back in the dark days of February, I was inspired to make a plan for a super ambitious vegetable garden. I tend to dream big – and sometimes my reality doesn’t always meet my lofty desires. But, to my utmost surprise and delight, my plan is coming together!!!
Thanks to many hours of work by my dad, my husband and myself, we have four fantastic 4′ X 8′ garden boxes. We’ve got gravel walkways between the boxes, lots of gorgeous black soil, organic fertilizer – and now, we’ve got seeds!
I know it’s a little late in the season to get some of these seeds started, but I thought I’d just go for it and see how it turns out. I’ve never grown anything from seed before, but I’m hoping that my enthusiasm will temper my ineptitude in this instance.
I spent the weekend working a bunch of compost and fertilizer into my soil.
I bought some seeds and some starts and started thinking about where they would fit. Here’s what I have:
Then I made a plan. This was fun.
I planted my seeds. I still haven’t planted my starts. I’m hoping to do that today.
Oh the possibilities in a box of dirt! Have you started your garden yet this year? What are you growing?
