is definitely a job. Garden layout takes planning and physical labor. You can spend hours looking through seed catalogues dreaming and choosing seeds and plants. You get the Almanac out to calculate planting days….and sketch layouts.
Saturday was beautiful. Sunny and about 74 degrees. Ernie pulled out the tiller and took care of the garden. He has enough room for potatoes, okra, tomatoes, peppers and some green beans. He had previously turned the garden boxes and planted the first rotation of onions.
We’ll wait a couple more weeks and plant another round of onions. It’s nearly time for lettuces, kale and spinach. Soon as the nights start warming, it’ll be time for beets, carrots, radishes. I’m hoping we can get hoop houses made to fit the boxes before next fall. For now, it’s a waiting game.
Wait to till, wait to plant, wait to see what sprouts, wait, wait, wait.
