Oh, what have I gotten myself into! I’ve never had a garden before and this year I decided to give it a try. I’ve been told that a garden has never done well on top of our hill, but what the heck, I thought I’d give it a try anyway!
I casually mentioned to my husband yesterday that I wanted to get started on my garden and that I needed his help moving a few things. So all of a sudden yesterday evening he got a place cleared and said his dad was on his way to till it up for me so I needed to figure out how big I wanted it.
How big? I have no clue! My mother-in-law said it can get big real fast and I didn’t want anything that I couldn’t handle for my first year. So I mowed a spot to mark where I wanted it to be and my father-in-law started tilling away. Kevin even brought him a couple of loads of manure so it should be nice and fertile ground!
Well, I’m not sure if it’s a “big” garden or not. I guess I’ll see once I get everything planted. Kevin suggested planting sweet corn along the south side of the garden to help as a wind break. So I’ll give that a try. We (as in me and HD) are going to plant some tomato plants, green beans, sweet corn, a few different kinds of peppers and squash and maybe some carrots and onions too! I’ll just have to see what looks good when I go buy some plants/seeds.
I’m hoping the weather and HD cooperate this week, as I would like to spend a few evenings getting it all planted. I’ll post some more pictures when I’m done and keep you up-to-date as to how it is going! Wish me luck!
