On Wednesday we planted our garden. We keep thinking this might be a risky move considering the weather we have been having this spring in Wisconsin. Just in case we get frost - I have sheets ready to cover everything if need be.
We do not have a large garden - more like a hobby garden. Our garden is only 8 feet by 24 ft. - the garden runs the south side of our garage. Something to grow and care for during the summer months.
We grow tomatoes, yellow pepper, green beans, okra, yellow squash, cucumbers, onions and garlic. Our plan this year is to grow our garlic, then dehydrate it and grind the dehydrated garlic. I will let you know how that goes. I plant sunflower seeds for the birds along the garage and marigolds to keep out the rabbits.
My hubby made the neatest things for the cucumbers and yellow squash. Check out the pic....super easy to make.
All you need is wire fencing that has been plastic coated, 4 poles, and a staple gun. Cut fencing then staple to the poles. Hammer in the ground so that they are sturdy. If need be we can tie string connecting each pole for more growing area for the vines.
We use mess in our garden to control weeds a biodegradable mess that is perfect for stopping weeds. Picking weeds is not a favorite of mind! The mess works great at preventing weeds and is perfect for a small garden like ours.
Now to get watering and hopefully everything grows. My hubby is the garden waterer and also the feeder of the garden. He has his own concoction of nutrients he puts on the garden. Designed for the plants we grow.
Do you have a garden? If so, what is your favorite veggie to grow?
