This year, the garden is on a much bigger scale. I’ve put in two raised beds for veggies (one for asparagus crowns, one for everything else), as well as created two beds for some flowers.
I’m still kind of fumbling along and figuring out everything as I go along, but so far it’s been very satisfying to watch everything take shape.
A couple lessons I learned this year-
1. I don’t have enough sunlight inside to start plants. I tried, and everything became so leggy!
2. Mice will eat flower starts. Who knew?
3. Everything takes longer than you estimate, and raised beds take more dirt than you would think!
As this weekend is Memorial Day, I’m going to pick up some veggie and flower starts from a local farm and get them in the ground. We aren’t technically frost free yet in my zone, but it’s looking nice and warm for the next week or so.
I’m excited to spend more time playing in the dirt this weekend.
