Garden- summer 2012

 The plans: We have big plans for the garden this year.  Our old garden area will now become a grassy area for Leland to play in.  While the rest of the backyard will be the garden.  We are doing a lot of new items this year which is exciting and scary, because you never know what will work. 
 The seeds: We went through a seed exchange this year, which is exciting. 
The book: Every question we have, we look for the answer in this book. 

We will also get some items as plants once it is time, such as tomatoes and herbs.
I hope we have enough excess produce to freeze or can as well, we will see.  

Jeff has already planted peas, kale, broccoli, carrots and leeks.  We have lots of pea sprouts coming up now! 

Does anyone else have big plans this year?


  1. We have our garden ready to go, too. So far we have tomatoes, bell peppers (green, red and yellow), head lettuce, red cabbage, onions, string beans from seeds that are sprouting, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries. I'm so excited for fresh produce!
