HSV Garden Challenge #1
That, my friends, is my current-sad-garden! I dont know who is more sad, my garden because it still looks like winter-save for the slight green of the iris leaves, or me because its still too cold to get out there and work in it!!
This is my second year having a garden, but the first year having a garden here at this house. I have many plans to 'improve' upon last year, but with different conditions I am interested to see how my garden grows at all.
My planting list:
-cucumbers (less then last year)
-zucchini (much less then last year)
-tomatoes-hoping for better results then last year
-green beans-new this year.
I found out last year that anything that takes more then 90 days to grow is pointless since I get tired of gardening by that point and quit weeding, so no watermelons this year.
I would like to get the kids more involved this year-but we will see how that goes. We will certainly be looking more closely at each plant this year if nothing else.
So that's the plan-which will likely change at some point.
First order of business is to find a tiller...or maybe I'll just go read other garden plans instead :). For some real inspiration, check out The Home School Village for the Garden Challenge link up!
