Off to a good start!
Here is where most of the action will take place this summer. This is a 4' x 4' raised bed that my husband made for me out of some wood we had. I lined it with black plastic to make it last a little longer. It took 10 bags of topsoil to fill it up. I added organic fertilizer for some nutrition. I measured out the spacing and hammered in some nails to tie garden twine to so that I could have a Square Foot Garden. The boys and I planted onion sets on March 3. This is what it looks like today (March 25):
In our front yard we have a raised brick bed. I planted spinach on March 3. This is what they looked like on March 17:
Yesterday, I bought a basil plant and some onion chives to fill in a gap in this bed.
That's all the planting for now. In a few weeks it will be time to plant cucumbers, melons, squash, and zucchini.
