New Year New Garden?
Well, I'm living up to my "I'm the worst garden blogger" title. Although, there's not a whole lot to do these days. We were blessed with a surplus of rain at the end of 2008 (surplus in December, not for the year.) I got some more mulch down in time for colder temps, but I've mostly holed up in the house and did the Christmas thing. My kids and I spent a few days with my parents this week. I decided to draw up a plan for the proposed veggie garden. We argued about the site a bit, and then I sat down to plan. And pretty soon, I was feeling overwhelmed. The whole idea of planning for different seasons of planting, organic pest control, and questions about sun, water, and fertilizer just made me feel like a fish out of water. So, I'm still kind of at a stand still with the veggie garden. I was thinking a potager style, rather than rows. And I'd like to incorporate my herbs in the bed, too. I still need to do research and measuring, and bed preparation. But planting for early veg is coming soon! What's a girl to do? Ideas anyone?
