Well I guess its the time of the year to get my behind in gear and start planting! I have longed for a garden for years now. Living in tiny spaces and jumping from place to place never allowed me the pleasure. We are currently renting a house that could use the addition to the yard.
When I was a kid I loved being in the garden. I loved to play with the worms and woodbugs. As I got older I started to actually plant things. I started with peas in a small planter box. Eventually I expanded my garden to include carrots, corn, and pumpkins. ** If you plan on planting pumpkins they will take over your entire yard hehe.
So now that we are in the position to plant a garden we thrilled! We tried planting some herbs on our window still last year but only the chives and chillies survived. This week I need to dig up the spot I want and get some good soil in there. Next weekend I plan to get planting!!
I noticed at the dollar store that they had gloves and tools and even fencing to put around the garden. I also need to get some seeds but I'm still deciding what to plant. Since we are newbies to this I'll probably stick to my usual. I'm definitely doing peas again! I would also like to do carrots and tomato's since I use so many cooking.
There are three amazing reasons to plant a garden:
1) It helps cut down on the food bill!!
2) It helps the environment!!
3) It gives you a great feeling to pluck your home grown food from the ground.
I can't wait to get started. This will be a project of love.
Anyone else planting a garden this year? Have any tips?
