Every year that we could, we have planted a garden. Since we weren't able to do much last year because we moved back in to our home at the end of July, we are excited to start one up this year. The girls really love helping us with the gardening work and they got to pick up rocks today and help clear weeds with us tonight. I hope this is something they never tire of-they get so excited when it comes time to pick anything. It's something that our family does together that we all enjoy doing. We are starting a little earlier this year than we have in the past-we usually wait until most of the starts go on sale. But this year we are going to try to do alot of our garden starting with seeds inside. Here is our list so far:
Tomatoes (roma and Beefsteak)
Parsnips (I had these for the first time earlier this year and really like them)
We will get zucchini, and sweet onions later. And we bought 4 Raspberry bushes to plant along the back of our yard along the fenceline where they will get plenty of sun. I can't wait-I hope they produce some this year. We planted strawberries a few years ago and never got any fruit from them-just a bunch of runners. I have transplanted a few of the runners hoping they might produce something-we'll see. If you have any suggestions about what to do with them-I am up for advice because we are really close to just ripping them out completely and planting new ones. Also I need advice on starting seeds indoors, since this is a first for me-what things have helped you??
