2012 Garden Plan
This year's garden is all planned out and I'm ready for another bountiful growing season to start. A few of the perennial plants are already up such as the lemon balm, rhubarb, chives, tansies, and strawberries. If the rain holds off this weekend I'm hoping to sow the salad greens, peas and onions. I may be a little early but my mom already has peas and greens in her garden and I'm jealous! Here's our garden plot. It's 16' x 42' - the same size as last year.
The warm-weather crops have been started indoors and a few things are already sprouting. The past few years I've bought pepper and tomato plants from local garden clubs but this year I'm starting all of my own plants - no cheating... unless my seeds don't come up! Then it's time for Plan B.
Do you plan on growing anything this year? In addition to the vegetable garden I plant flowers for a few hanging baskets and containers around our house. I love how the bright flowers make our house look so much more inviting and cheerful.
