Yesterday started off with a few sprinkles but by around 10 am the clouds had lifted and the sun came shining in. The HH picked up 2 yards of garden soil for me and get this… He hauled all of it to the back yard for me and filled my garden beds. Wahoo!
I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to try and grow 2 “hills” of pumpkins in this area or plant zucchini in one and finagle some sort of cucumber trellis in the other.
All I know is the garden boxes are full, the bean teepee is set up, and I’m ready to get this garden started.
Instead of growing cabbage, beets, chard and strawberries in the shaded side garden this year, I think I’m going to turn the whole area into a strawberry patch. I planted 50 or so tristar strawberry plants in the spot last spring and they are starting to come back to life. If I let the runners go wild… the whole area should be covered in strawberry plants by fall. Well, that’s what I’m hoping for anyway.
How about you? Is your garden ready to go? Are you ready for this years growing season?
