Anyways, this past week the winds were too high to get a proper start on the garden. However, this past weekend was the PERFECT time to start. And with highs in the 60s-80s for the next week and a half, I am so ready.I started with my 4'x8' garden box. I have brocolli, cauliflower, tomatoe and pepper starters inside already, as well as some garlic starters. Those went in the box. Then I started lettuce, spinach, nasturtiums, and beets from seed. Top it of with some marigold plants to help with pest control and voila! My garden box is in and growing.
Lee and I had heard that planting potatoes in old tires worked realy well. Since Lee knows the tire guys in town, he inquired about getting some old beat up tires for this purpose. I planted two kinds of potatoes in tires as well as one tire of peas. All are coming up like gang busters now.
