Today, I started outlining my first vegetable garden. I measured out a space that was 14 feet in length and 6 feet wide. I’m planning on adding two raised beds this weekend with a foot path in between for working. I did take a photo of my first dig for sentimental sake. And I found a little frog that scared me to death when he hoped out of a batch of dried oak tree leaves. I screamed for my hubby to remove him but changed my mind.
Maybe he is meant to be a part of the eco-system in my new garden. I’m still deciding what to grow. I’m trying to think of things that we eat on a daily basis. (Wish we could grow Mac & Chz in the garden). I’m thinking lettuce, carrots, spinach, tomatoes, potatoes, onions, garlic are a good start this year. I really want to grow a lot of tomatoes. I’m hoping to make a lot of sauce (hopefully) this year and store it for lots of pasta and pizza this winter.
