I know it doesn't look like much, but this little piece of land will be our garden when the weather allows. We tried to garden last year for the first time, and lets just say we learned a lot of what not to do. This year we plan to give this garden a lot of time and attention, which will be possible due to different schedules we have this year vs. last year. It would be nice to be able to use our own home grown vegetables in our homemade meals. Last year we made a huge mistake and didn't consider the shading of the trees surrounding the land. Most of the garden was covered in shadow from these trees. I am hoping this year we can plan around this, and place the garden in a optimum location for great sunlight. We plan on watering the garden using only rain water we catch in a homemade rain barrel or two. It is amazing how much rain you can collect in those things! That black box you see out there is our compost bin. I just can't wait to start throwing kitchen scraps in it again.
I am open to any gardening tips if anyone has them! We can use all the help/advice we can get!
