With so many projects on our list, it seemed as if we’d never get to our garden. So we took a day last week and tilled and planted. YAY! Every day I run out to see what has sprouted, and yes, I do laugh at myself. I feel like the woman from that popular commercial “open open open” well my diligence has paid off! Our garden is sprouting!
Last year we had too much of some things and not enough of others, so this year we planted have two 6ft x 4ft raised cedar beds, and we spaced things out a bit.

I can hardly wait for the okra and my cotton to sprout! That being said, the carrots and potatoes came up from last years composting (the way my Fav plants), and the strawberries and mint remained and are doing quite well. Well the mint migrated. We did try getting rid of it, but it moved to the center on its own, and really, I kinda like how it flavors the other veggies from the cross pollination. All in all, I am geeked about our garden, and am looking forward to this years crop. Watermelon anyone?
