Yep, you read that right! This year we are making our first garden. My family always had a garden when I was growing up. I just never really wanted to work in one since then. But, this year we are going to give it a try. I bought these seeds on special buy $25 get $25 free. The strawberries and flowers I ordered with it haven't come yet.
I have been reading up on blogs and different sites for advice on our garden. I also have great friends who have shared their knowledge to help us get started. They have 1/3 of an acre and a lot of that is their garden. They have been really wonderful answering all my strange and possibly dumb questions.
My husband borrowed a plow so he could till up the land and he made the garden bigger than I think we will need, just in case. My oldest son and I picked the weeds, roots, and rocks out of it the next day. At which point I said I don't think I want a garden anymore. That is hard work, lol! My sweet friend said at least it's exercise and you might even lose weight.
I planted some lettuce about a week and a half ago in a container that I could bring in if there was a freeze, which there was late last week. The little lettuce leaves are already starting to pop up out of the soil. Yay!
What about y'all, are you having a garden this year? If you've got any tips for me, please let me know!
