Spurred on by the sprouts from my full moon planting (Yes, already! At least I hope they’re not weeds!), I asked Husband if we were going to have a veggie garden this year. He wants to, as we didn’t have one last year. I don’t know why food from the garden tastes better, but it does. Maybe it’s all the hard work and anticipation at the final outcome.

Below is our veggie garden. Pretty nasty, but we have a rototiller that will get things ready. See those green clumps on the right hand side? Those are strawberries. We should have protected them with straw, but we used leaves last year and they survived. I dumped a few buckets of ash from the woodstove in the veggie garden. I looked it up and depending on the soil content, it’s good. The soil here is mostly clay with a few bags of peat moss and black earth that we put in two years ago. Personally, I don’t think it’ll do that much harm, but we’ll only know after this growing season. I think we’ll just stick to the normal veggie garden stuff; tomatoes, green peppers, radishes, onions, carrots. Maybe some garlic this year.

Below is a garden I’m hoping will come back. We have a type of perennial sunflower growing here. They’re a bugger because they grow so tall, but the birds love the seeds, so I like them too. As you can see, we have a little construction going on there, and they trampled on in the fall, so I’m hoping they come back.

This is the front garden. I’m planting some seeds indoors and will plant them in here. Also, I’m going to buy some perennials and annuals too. Can’t have everything by seed.
