During the Winter we had to clear out a big spot in our backyard that was grown up and had basically been used as a dump by one of the previous tenants here, so that was a huge job itself, chopping down small trees and pulling up bushes and weeds and roots. My husband worked really hard at getting it done and then set to work tilling up the ground with a shovel and he built us a raised bed too. We finished the garden spot up by the time it was planting season, and now we have a small tiller which makes it so much easier to work up the soil for the seeds and plants to be put in.
After our last frost of the season (yay, Spring!), we planted several things– tomatoes, peppers, peas, onions, cabbage, carrots, lettuce, spinach, and more. We’re a bit late planting a few remaining things, but with all the rain we’ve had lately it has put us a bit behind schedule, but hopefully the ground will dry up enough that we can finish the last bit of planting very, very soon.
I’m really excited to see how everything grows, and am crossing my fingers that I don’t let everything die. With the luck I have with house plants, it’s a wonder our garden is doing as well as it is at the moment! Haha.
So, that’s pretty much all I have to say about our little garden for today. I’ll try to post more updates as it grows and we start harvesting. We’re so looking forward to having fresh vegetables right from our own backyard!
