Garden 2011: Week 1

Two weekends ago, we decided to enlarge our garden. (I do square foot gardening--but this is my favorite site about it--be sure to sign up for the weekly reminder emails!)Dave built me a 4x12 foot bed using this cinderblock plan from Covington's Nursery. He filled it with new dirt and I planted my first crops last week--lettuce, spinach, peas, carrots, onions, and broccoli. Thus far the only thing up is the broccoil, and that's only because I used transplants. Everything else is from seed.


I hope to update my progress every few weeks!

how fun! It looks like a straightforward, simple way to do it. i am anxious to see the results. best of luck! i am assuming you can start it this early b/c you are in warm Texas weather?! I hope to get around to planting a garden again this year with a new baby! good for you!

I'm so jealous. :) Not only because you HAVE a garden, but because you plant in early March! This year I'm going to try container gardening on our balconies. We'll see how it goes!
