Another project has been checked off our to-do list! The garden is completely planted and now its the waiting game to see how it turns out! Last summer's weather was perfect for our gardens - and I'm hoping the same for this year. If not, we do have four rain barrells set up and ready for back-up. What started out as one single raised bed has expanded into four raised beds in a 20 ' x 30' fenced in garden. That lasted for a year then we added a quick extension with a few temporary posts and wiring for 'just a few more' plants. So with some getting down and dirty and a bit of blood, sweat and tears (oh wait - there were no tears) we've now got ourselves a pretty nice little set up. Of course we still pick up some produce from local sellers in the fall like potatoes, pumpkins etc. After all - we are just small time gardeners! Oh! ~ one more thing, this year I did what's known as companion planting. Certain plants benefit others with pest control, flavor, production etc.
