Now that school is out for the summer, I have started an organic garden! I am so excited to try this whole organic gardening thing out!
We have, what I jokingly call, an urban garden. Our backyard is so tiny that I have had to get a bit creative on where I am planting. Thanks to my very willing to help hubby, since he found out we could save a bit on our grocery budget over the winter, I now have some really cool plots.
We planted banana and green peppers behind our shed, and also threw in some romaine lettuce and corn. Then to try a little bit of companion planting, planted three pumpkin plants. In our two plots by the carport, we planted twelve tomato plants, more corn, and watermelon.
In our landscaping, we are trying zucchini, and pumpkin. Oh, and I also planted a few corn plants beside our house in the landscaping too! We also planted a banana pepper in a 5 gallon bucket that I'm just moving around as is necessary. Long story short..... I want an organic garden and I'm going to squash those plants in where I can!! =)
Will be blogging about our progress, and problems that arise over the summer. Going organic has been a goal of mine for awhile, and just decided.... why not plant my own veggies and fruit!!
~A few of the problems we have had already will be addressed in my next post.... rabbits!!!! Who would have thought? LOL Also planning on trying to "can" things for the winter, and this will be a first for me. Will be posting about that experience this fall as well!
~Check back next Saturday for the latest in our Organic Gardening Adventure!!!
Can't wait to see how this turns out for us! Fingers crossed it's a great harvest!!!
~Do you have any new projects this summer? I would love to hear about them or any questions you would like for me to address in my upcoming posts about organic gardening.
