Adventures of a Third Time Gardener!Posted: May 20, 2013
Hello loyal readers! It’s that time of year again – That’s right! It’s gardening time! This will be the first time we garden in the new house – how exciting! We were debating about whether or not to put in a garden this summer, because we were worried about how much time we would have with everything else going on with the new house, but when the weather turned around, we decided there would be no way we couldn’t! So we dug up a nice (but small) area in the backyard where we would be able to plant a few veggies.
Here is the garden patch, dug by hand!
And here is our stash of veggies! My wonderful boss, John at Gold Forest Grains, gave me two wonderful heritage tomato plants, and my mother in law seeded a whole bunch of plants for us as gifts. We are spoiled!
This year, we will be growing acorn squash again, seeing as how successful it was last year!
And of course, we had to start a new strawberry patch. It was so hard to leave the old one behind… It gave us such lovely strawberries!
Stay tuned for updated throughout the summer!
