This will be our very first year having a garden. My sister and her family inspired us last year. And since my husband wanted a hobby that he could do with his hands (he sits at a computer most of the day) we decided to take it on.
Now we don’t know much, so we are trying to read up all about it. We currently are using a document we printed off the web for our specific area. So, if you have any other recommendations, we would greatly appreciate it!
And as far as a plan…we haven’t one…yet. What we do have is a tilled up section of land, thanks to my brother-n-law. Now we have to figure out what we’re actually going to do with it. The obvious things we need to think about:
What are we going to plant? Have we missed the planting window? We’re thinking tomatoes, green beans for sure. We might try some cucumbers, lettuce and carrots. Haven’t officially decided.
Our main concern is how are we going to keep the rabbits and the neighboring woodchucks out of it? What do you do? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I’m sure more questions will develop as we dive deeper into this little project of ours, but for now I’m just excited that we have some where to begin! And I have a feeling Lil’man is going to love the adventure as well.
