So I decided to grow a small garden this year.
After years of "phoo phooing" gardens and my many "I don't garden" comments I thought for the kids sake we should grow one. It might be fun.
I was right! Where has this garden been all our lives?
Dan started back in April by helping the boys makes me this:
Obviously not a fantastic first time attempt but not bad enough to discourage us.
The Anaheim Peppers are coming in and I'm cleaning and freezing them so they will be ready for salsa making.
The minis painted large Popsicle sticks for us to use as markers. We've messed up with the beans but I'm going to string the trellis today and hope they might be revived.
But now I'm thinking raspberry, strawberry and blackberry bushes along the back fence and maybe a dwarf Cherry or Peach tree for next year!
Are you growing a garden? Do you have any great tips for a novice?
