It’s that time again folks! Garden season!
This year I’m doing a container garden. The ground here doesn’t have much in the way of earth and a raised garden is too expensive and time consuming to construct right now. I found a site called The Seed Guy [visit The Seed Guy Web Site ] that has the information on the size of containers I’d need. Looking over the page made me think that I could do a huge container garden. Just put it in the right amount of light and off I go. So, I’m hoping to do bi-weekly updates on this project to keep me accountable.
This is the back yard. A bit of a mess right now, but as the leaves fill out, it will go bright sun on the far left to shade on the far right. I originally wanted to do tomatoes (2), green peppers, cucumbers, carrots, radishes and a squash, but I found a bunch of containers in the basement and garage that my mom wasn’t planning to use so I might be able to do more. I also found some bamboo poles and I thought about making a trellis for peas or beans, although I might be getting ahead of myself.
This is the front flower garden. We’ve pulled up the majority of that black weed-resistant material and my mother wants to put in mulch or something else that isn’t such a pain in the ass to work around.
I call this the half-moon garden. She wants all this dug up this year and put in a butterfly garden. She ordered the new plants online and should come sometime this month.
Anyway, that’s our plan for the season. Are you gardening this year?
