2011 Garden

I am expanding the garden just a bit this year to try out a couple new things so my 2011 Garden will include..
Green Onions
Bell Peppers
Collard Greens
Bok Choy

Here is my gardening journal thus far…

Jan. 24: Started seeds inside (bell peppers, spinach, collard greens, roma tomatoes, broccoli, watermelon, chives, cilantro, green onions)

Feb. 1:
~Bought dirt, compost, garden soil
~filled raised beds and planters
~Bought blocks to build watermelon bed, added bonus blocks will double as herb planters

The space that will hopefully hold watermelons and my herbs

My garden space (3 raised beds & 2 planters)

Feb. 2
~Added fertilizers to soil
~Planted Raspberry, garlic and 3 spinach plants (wanted to see if it better to start outside or indoors)

Feb. 5
~Moved Strawberry plants outside, because of bugs (its still pretty cold at night so I am not sure how the will turn out)

Feb. 7
~Started snack pack watermelons, beefsteak tomatoes, collard greens, zucchini & boy choy inside
~Put together and set up composter.

This is my homemade Composter from last year
And this is my new, bigger composter. 🙂
