This was my morning project, after getting up at 6:30 to run. We’re having some crazy weather here – after being up in the 80s and humid all week, it suddenly dipped into the 40s last night. Not so nice for a run, but lovely for gardening once the sun came out.
I’ve decided to try a kind of modified square foot garden. Apparently, you can optimize space by dividing things into squares, rather than planting in rows. I’m going to try beans (2 varieties), peas, cucumbers, zucchini, carrots and two kinds of melons. I’m most optimistic about the beans and peas, but Patruck is insisting on the melons. (hmm…that sounds kinda funny. ha-ha funny.)
I plan to post a cost breakdown later, but for now I must shower! Wish me luck and keep your fingers crossed - because we’re just winging it!
