Ready and waiting...
Spring can't get here soon enough for me! I prepped the garden about 2 weeks ago, and I planted our sugar snap peas on St. Patrick's Day! Of course, it got COLD right after that, so I am not sure how well they will do.
I am a gardening novice. I made this raised bed 2 years ago, and the first year we had a GREAT yield! Last year, nothing did overly well. I am hoping to do a little better this year.
And, we're going to expand the garden! Maddie asked for her own little patch of ground, so we're going to add a few raised beds for the kids to call their own. I may make a few extra for ME too!
We used raised beds because the quality of our soil is terrible. It's mostly clay, but our house is actually built over top an old junk yard, so there is all sorts of YUCK mixed in our soil. The raised beds have worked well.
I am going to a composting seminar in May, so we'll be giving that a try this year too!
