Our Garden

 SquareFoot Gardening may 3 2009

This is the plan for our garden this year (Rosie Girl made the grids in SmartDraw and showed me how to fill them in.  She’s so smart!).  We will have two 4x4 boxes with plants in approximately this configuration.  We will also have another 2x4 foot box with raspberries (actually this will be Rosie Girl’s box – she will be growing the berries and eventually making jam).

I’ve made a calendar as well.  Here’s the gist of it:

May 3-9:

Shop for supplies (shopping lists made)

Make boxes

Plant asparagus, broccoli, parsley, spinach, lettuce, onions, carrots

May 10-16

Plant beans, corn, yellow squash, mint, pansies, marigolds

May 24-29

Plant tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, pumpkin, raspberries, cilantro

The tomatoes and cucumbers will be planted upside down in plastic buckets and not in the gardens.

I have no idea how all this will work out, but it sounds like lots of fun, and the whole family is looking forward to it!
