Sitting down this morning to soak in some garden knowledge! I am figuring out what I want to plant and how to prune what I've already got. I think I've decided that I'll start some seeds in the garage like I did two years ago so that I can plant them in the garden in late March. This weekend, though, I will plant these directly in the garden:
I probably should have started earlier as someone has already told me that he has been enjoying his spinach and brocoli! Oh well, we'll see how it goes.
The other veggies I want to plant this year are:
Tomatoes (I have only ever tried the small cherry tomatoes which I didn't like. I want to try some larger varieties this year. I also just found out that you should put a collar on the bottom of the plants to keep pests from climbing up which I have had trouble with in the past. I will use a small plastic dixie cup upside down with a hole to keep those pests at bay!)
Peppers - Green, Red and Yellow
Zuccini (yum, grilled zuccini!)
I also love getting those wildflower seed packets and sprinkling a few in the garden and around the house. Will definitely have to re-mulch our flower beds this year. So off to the hardware store to see what I can find! Also picking up some peat moss, vermiculite and manganese to add to the soil.
This morning I am also remerchandising some stuff in our gift shop at work. Another thing I love doing!!
