Now some of you might give a tiny chuckle to our drawings and such but we're beginners... so don't expect too much! We've already prepared journal in which we will write down all of the do's and don'ts that we learn this year to have a more successful garden in the Spring of 2013!
The most important part about planning a garden in my opinion is planning what you are going to plant. For our first garden we are basically creating a menu! It will be a list of what we find ourselves eating on a daily basis and what foods we just can't seem to live without! That way... if we are successful this year fresh vegetables won't go to waste just because we we're experimenting. Our list contains what we love most which includes spinach,, different varieties of squash, garlic, onions, LOTS of tomatoes and LOTS of herbs!
So make sure if you're planning a vegetable garden for the first time... include items that you know you're going to eat... items you always go to the market for. We're excited to see what will emerge and what will not... either way it's exciting and I can't wait to break ground!
