I finally got my Spring veggie garden planted today! These last three days have really warmed up around here and I was able to till the ground on Friday and add new organic top soil! Today I planted half the garden with Spring veggies such as...green lettuce, spring lettuce mix, peas, beets,spinach, radishes, and kale. I still have carrots, parsley, broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage to add later this week. This is the earliest that I've gotten our Spring garden in. For the last two years, we hadn't gotten a real Spring planting in until late April. When I lived at DeluxeVille I never bothered with a Spring garden, I only ever planted a Summer one. It's nice to be on schedule this year with the veggie garden!
Even when I had my tiny back garden, I always planted veggies. It was small but perfect for a single gal of one! I would have one of each plant...pepper, tomato, zucchini, egg plant, cucumber, a row of beans, and a bunch of herbs! It didn't take up much room and it kept me well supplied! Of course now, I have tons of room and Sgt and I try to add on to our garden each year. I think everyone should have the satisfaction of growing their own food at least once in their lives. No matter how big or small your property is, there are lots of ideas out there on how you can utilize it to grow food! When I was a renter, I would always grow fresh herbs in planters on my balcony. I always thought growing herbs was a great way to start into balcony gardening and herbs were always fun and convenient to use when I was cooking!
