Here it is, April 13, and we have just started planning for this year's garden. We figure this is about 3-4 times the size of last year's apartment garden, and we're so excited! Our asparagus trench is dug and ready for 25 two-year-old plants that are on their way to us from Tennessee. Patrick tilled an estimated 40X40 foot space yesterday. We ordered some very nice seeds, have some potatoes sprouting, and can't wait to visit our friends at Ravenwold Farm for plants.
While we're focusing on vegetables, all of the new Spring growth has us very excited since this is our first Spring in the house. So far, I see daffodils, chives, walking onions and the beginnings of strawberries and rhubarb. What we've done up until this point is mostly prep...I've been very busy raking and mulching. We just got boy and girl blueberry bushes and are excited to see what they bring. Many photos to come as we track our progress.
