Because we had such an early spring here, this would have been the ideal year to get an early start on my garden, but because I was going to raised bed gardening, and therefore, waiting for my husband to build me the boxes, things got delayed.
But today I made progress! I filled one 4'x8' bed with gardening soil (50/50 loam compost mix) and planted spinach, kale, orange carrots, purple carrots, beets and I started some cosmos by seed a few wks back and put those starts in that bed also to add color and hopefully attract some bees and butterflies.
the 2nd bed is almost filled but tomorrow my husband is getting me some hog panels and will cut those for trellissing. I have sugar snap peas started that I'll transplants, cucs, and beans and all those will be climbing.
and the 3rd bed will mostly consist of starts that I'll buy this week - zucchini, onions, peppers and tomatos.
Plus I have potatos and pumpkins that sprouted up in other areas of my garden from compost that I buried over the winter.
the strawberries are starting to ripen, the raspberries are continuing to grow and the blueberries have lots of little berries.
the garlic has also been in for a few months.
and I have one smaller bed that has had lettuce growing for about a month now also.
As some things start sprouting, I'll take pics of my garden and show the progress.
