Today I planted my garden, and I am sure I will pay for it tomorrow. My awesome husband added some new dirt and compost to my raised beds yesterday and also set out everything I needed to plant. Today I walked/hopped/scooched around and planted my second Yukon garden.
This year I have nearly double the space I had last year thanks to Matt building more raised beds on the second level of our backyard. The second level is almost all potatoes! On the upper level I have two kinds of swiss chard, two kinds of spinach, leeks, green onion, beets, lettuce, green and yellow beans, peas and carrots. I still have some beds empty since a neighbour said she has some started plants to give me that she has run out of room for.
Everything I planted again this year is straight from seed. Next year I am hoping to have a greenhouse plus I will start plants in the house and be ready to transplant.
I now just have my fingers crossed that this season yields even more than last summer! I was very pleased last year with everything that grew, however I need to set some traps for the voles that took a liking to my carrots and pea plants.
Now to wait patiently for it all to grow and the yard and trees to finally green up.
|First sprinkler run of the season! brrrr!|
