BUT...I never realized that in my haste, I might read directions WRONG!!!!
My father in law, Phil, wrote and said that we should make a "square-foot" garden, as you can get a lot from a small space that way.
I looked at a picture of a square ft garden, told Rich what I wanted. (12 squares, a foot each) He told me what to buy, I went to the lumber yard, bought the wood, came home, Had Rich cut the wood and screw it together ...... then went back in and looked at the directions.
Hmmm.... I see, it was just supposed to be a "grid overlay", not 12 individual spaces.
But...we're going to go with what we have. I think it will work out just fine.
Tomorrow, we'll get the soil and fill in the squares and add some soil to the rest of the garden, and get ready to plant.
The barrel will have peas or beans.
And the circle will have something else. LOL
and on the other side of the little walk way, we'll get three more barrels for some container gardening. Probably one of the barrels will be a "salad" barrel.
I have some carrots, onions, radishes, beets, peas, beans, and suumer squash, zuchinni and pumpkin.
I have too many things for such a small space.
We'll see how it goes.
One would think, by some of the pictures, that we have a HUGE yard. And we do, I just don't want to take any of it away to plant a vegetable garden, so this is what we'll do this year.
The Frog is waiting to see....
Our space....it ain't much, but it will have to do.
The snowball bush is getting blooms....
And we begin the process...
4 feet by 4 feet....
Our yard is greening up. Rich put some fertilizer on last week, and as you know, it snowed on Wednesday, so the grass grew, but today, his lawn mower was not working.
