Here’s my spot on the web for tracking the progress of my garden this year.
When I was a kid, I have fond memories of running around my grandad’s ginormous garden each year … helping him weed and water and compost … and of course, EAT! He always had the most spectacular garden in town. And he consistently managed to grow some huge veggies.
My first attempt at gardening on my own a few years ago wasn’t nearly as productive. Yes, I managed to enjoy a few fruits of my small amount of labor. But since then I’ve learned that the more attention I pay to something, the better the result! … Hmm, isn’t that novel? 🙂
This year I’ve discovered the shear bliss of the Square Foot Gardening method, which is totally up my alley. Very little weeding, and as many vegetables as I can eat. Here are some pics of the garden as soon as I installed it. I planted tomatoes, pole beans and a watermelon plant outside of the squares.
My next post will show where we’re at after just three weeks of growing time and lots of rain!
