Another Year, Another Mud Pile

2013-04-27 17.56.27

So here begins another gardening adventure! I have expanded the garden by about one foot this year. I’m not half as crazy as I was last year, the learning curve has certainly leveled off, at least for a while. I would *like* to test the soil and amend it appropriately for the vegetables I plan to grow in each row…but I am also wondering what it would be like to be hands off for a year, considering how hands-on and overprotective I was last year!

I’m going to plant in some semblance of rows this year. From left to right I plan to grow garlic, red green and jalapeno peppers, kale, corn, carrots, pumpkins, romaine, and snap peas. I will plant successively too to keep crops going through the summer. I’ve already got my garlic coming up!

So there you have it – the first veggie sprouts of the season! Can’t wait to see how my asparagus will be in their second year. We also have kept two community garden raised boxes so I’m excited to grow some watermelons, tomatoes, and pickling cukes there. I’m avoiding cukes and zukes in my home garden to try to control the cucumber beetle and stink bug ¬†population we had last year….I know I’m taking a chance with the pumpkins but this is the last year the home-grown seeds will work so I will take good care of them!

Yay!!! Spring is here!!!
