Time to Start in the Garden

Well April is upon us and the weather is starting to warm a little, I think the threat of a hard frost is over and I have ordered my seeds.

Today we spent a little time tilling and working in some compost that we created over the winter.

We did some cleaning up of the garden spaces, tilled up the soil add organic compost, from our barrel composter. We collect compost in our kitchen, coffee grounds, egg shells, and vegetable matter.

The garden this year will consist of potatoes, heirloom tomatoes, beefsteak tomatoes, red, yellow and green bell peppers, black zucchini, crookneck squash, pole beans, egg plant, cucumbers, spinach, lettuce, beets, peas, cherry tomatoes, carrots and radishes.

Looking forward to a wonderful garden season! Can't wait, a friends chickens are already laying again and I normally trade veggies for fresh eggs each week.

I hope if you are planting a garden of any kind this year, you have much success!
