Garden Update!Posted: April 20, 2012
Yesterday I got to work in the garden! It is warm enough to start greens and peas so I went ahead and started planting!
I started by fencing off my little plot and found out it is about 15ft x 4ft. Super long! I tried to get out all of the rocks and pieces of glass while also checking out what was leftover from last year.
Lots of little squash of some sort. I pulled a bunch of these out so they weren’t over crowded. We shall see what they turn out to be! Tilling was seriously hard work.
Next I dumped out a giant bag or organic compost and some organic plant food. The odd shape is because I am trying to give everyone an equal amount of light and my plot is east, west lengthwise. Till, till, till.
Planted! 4 mixed greens, 6 spinach, 6 heads of romaine, 6 heads of kale, 4 sweet peas, and 2 green beans. Next up, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, zucchini, and herbs!
I need more compost!
