I was walking around my empty garden a few days ago and found a forgotten carrot that never finished growing. Walking around in the dirt again made me long for the last chance of frost so I can start planting again. When I went back inside I promptly took out my favorite gardening books and started refreshing myself on the subject. I’ve only been gardening for 4 years now and still have a lot to learn. I think a lot of my success’s with it have just been dumb luck. This year though I want to plan things out and not let it get to overgrown and messy.
first of many plans
I drew out a quick plan for the garden yesterday knowing that nothing about it will be final. I just realized I didn’t save a space for the Rainbow Chard seeds I ordered! Also the butternut and delicata up in the top right of the garden…might not happen…or only one might happen. Will I have 4 eggplant plants growing? Time will tell.
grown in 2010
I’m reminiscing about gardens past. 2009 the garden was 1/2 the size it is now. I grew A LOT of jalapeno’s! 2010 was my best garden ever. 2011 was the year I had a baby and not much happened. 2012 was the year our groundhog Theon decided to brave jumping the garden fence and ate all my broccoli. I made a lot of arugula and/or basil Pesto last year as well.
I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!
just a heads up that I plan on talking about gardening a lot this spring/summer. hope you all don’t mind! :)
