We recently cut down a tree in our backyard which freed up a lot of space. We were going to plant a small garden, but with the newly empty space we decided to plant something a bit bigger. We now have a 4×8 square foot garden in the back yard.
There is nothing better than strawberries grown in your back yard! At the gym this morning I read The New Square Foot Garden which I received from Mother’s Day. I really love this book. It makes gardening for someone who doesn’t know what they are doing very manageable. Next year I will try to use Mel’s mix, especially if my garden doesn’t flourish this year. I have 7 plastic planters on my patio that I will plant seeds in and use Mel’s mix for the soil. It should be interesting to compare the garden with the planters. I hope to get a bunch of tomatoes!
Are you gardening this year? What did you plant?
