I had a guy till up a bigger area cos our garden is growing. It doesn’t have anywhere to go more than this, so we will make good use of all the space. I have some weed cloth down where tomatoes and a couple other things will go, and mulched walkways between some areas, to keep down weeds as well as make mud-free places to walk. In addition to this area, there is an herb bed and pots in the back.
I already have peas and onions planted inside the fenced area, cos those things can take more cold and are traditionally planted here early. And they are coming up, putting their little noses up for the sun.
Some things need to get started early and inside, so there are little pots with seedlings on several of my window sashes, at my great eastern facing windows. We’re having some really cold nights, and those pots go out in the day time, into a little greenhouse my son got me for Christmas. Those pots have mostly quite a few kinds of tomatoes and sweet and hot peppers. Later, after our safe day of 5/15, we’ll plant things that go right into the ground: cucumbers, several kinds of beans and Limas, some herbs that don’t like the cold, and this year we’re trying growing the 3 Sisters companion planting idea. https://sarasinart.net/2016/02/12/three-sisters/
Lots of fun planned, and lots of good food to grow, heirloom plants that give you the same product year after year. And we’ll try some canning of pickles and jellies, including hot pepper jelly.
If you’re a gardener, I hope you’re gearing up too, and will have a great growing season. The good earth will send forth her blessings once again. And of course, I’ll be posting pictures!
