We've hit the ground running. San Felipe, Mexico was great! It was the perfect little get away for me. Beach, movies, friends, ahhh. Upon return I set out to finish building my vegetable garden. It turned out way cool! I never thought I could build somthing like this all by myself. Now for the hard part: GROWING FOOD!
We are waiting for a storm to pass this weekend before planting seeds. I think we might do a starter kit in egg cartons.
I hope I can do it. I mean, I usually kill every plant that enters my home. Lord willing, I'll have a healthy garden. Jack picked out 10 vegetables. We'll see what ends up getting planted first. He is a great little farmer. As I said here I got the plans to build this from Better Homes & Gardens, but I found a second resource and find it much easier to follow. To build a raised garden bed like mine visit Sunset Magazine tutorial. It was missing one item on the materials list (bird netting) but that was a mear $5.
I'll keep you posted on the progress.
Again, gardening tips are welcome, so please spill your beans!
