This year we extended our garden, planted more seeds and started it on time!
We dug out a small
(I have to make a note in here that this is one of the main reasons we are so happy to be out of an apartment! We love having a yard and room for a garden and our landlord doesn't mind one bit. He actually thought it was really cool that we are growing our own veggies. If you rent, it doesn't hurt to ask!)
This week I'll be making signs for each row. Check back for a DIY on how I make those.
After just a few days we already had some radishes pop:
This week we had some hard rain and we can definitely see a difference!
there are a few more seeds that have not popped yet.
Even the butterflies love our garden.
It's not perfect. There is grass growing up all around the plants but that doesn't bother us much. I pay more attention to the weeds. I guess in Afghanistan their gardens are full of grass and the vegetables grow just fine (my husband spent 6 months over there last year). So we're doing it old school.
If you are considering planting a garden, I would suggest starting out with something easy. Of course, starting from plants rather than seeds is always easier. If you want to try seeds, I highly suggest radishes. They grow so fast and are super easy! Many of ours are almost ready to be pulled and we planted them just 3 weeks ago.
What about you?! Do you have a garden this year? What did you plant?
