The winter has been mild so far with no snow to speak of, but I’m still hoping for a few hard freezes to kill off some of the bug population.
We got an old tiller going (with a new motor!) and so we are expanding our garden. The last two years we’ve had two 4′ X 12′ raised beds. This year we will have a 24′ X 28′ plot. I’m a little nervous for the challenge of going from raised beds to the ground. Any tips? We will be amending our soil with manure, grass and agri lime.
I’m super excited to be expanding the garden because that means I can grow a bigger variety. I’m trying some new veggies, flowers and herbs this year.
I got my seed order from Baker Creek (I just love them!) and I will be starting some seeds indoors soon. Mike is also going to build me a seed starting rack so I don’t have to use the kitchen table! Yay!
For those experienced seed starters, do you use a commercial seed starting mix? If so, what do you fertilize with?
