Garden
 
Anyone planted or planning to plant a spring garden? What are you planting?

Got some of my planting done today. Feels so good to have it started! So far I planted: zucchini, yellow squash, lettuce variety, and some flowers. We also have strawberries growing that are soooo good! And the apple tree is blooming. DH is going to get the avocado and citus trees planted today too.

I'm planning on it, but my tiller is in the shop. I should be getting it back sometime this week, so I should be able to get started next weekend.

I REALLY would love to do that, one of these years. This is not the year, though. But yours sounds awesome!

I was supposed to be doing that today but I'm too sore from our curling tourney yesterday. I just have a small 6x4 garden.

When I started out, I used the book the square foot gardener. It tells you how to plant alot in a small amount of space. If you don't have a flower bed to use, it even shows you how to build a raised bed to plant in. It really is experimentation about what works and what doesn't though.

ill have to read that book! i really want to do a raise bed. Id love to grow our own produce. We've planted several fruit trees...but the only one that has done REALLY well is our kumquat tree! i swear its slammed full of fruit all year long.

I would love to grow some veggies but I can barely keep our house plants alive. And our yard doesn't have a great space for a garden so ill put it off until we move somewhere else.

So jealous that you're already gardening! Personally...i hate gardening (im afraid of bugs and critters and like Shannon can barely keep a real plant alive indoors) but I'm soooooooo ready to see some flowers and green grass :(

We have mostly perrenial plants....no veggies/fruits...so we just let them do their work. we water them ofcourse lol

I have to figure out what I'm doing for my garden this year... Last year I did a deck garden that was just in plain little planters. I may have to get some wood and make some planters that way or I'm going to get some hog troughs from farm store.

I'm hoping to do cucumbers, rosemary, thyme, mint, chives, onions, lavender, some other herbs, strawberries, lettuce, and we'll see what else. I am hoping that my blueberry bush comes back though.

This is what I do. We live in a very wooded area and the deer and rabbits eat everything. So, I garden in containers on my deck. It's the only way I can grow a thing.I love veggies from the garden.

Last year I had an herb garden too. Fresh herbs are so expensive at the grocery store. You can grow them in containers, and they're very hardy. Whenever I cook, I just go out to the herb garden and cut whatever I need for my recipe. The flavor is wonderful :smile:
