Hello my wonderful friends from all over the world! It is very late here but I just could not sleep because I have been meaning to do this blog post for a while now and just haven't done it.
As you all know I love to do many things. I love to crochet, to cook, to read, and I love to grow things. I have a goal in mind for my little spot of land here. I would love to have tons of fresh herbs and edibles growing all around me. I have a pretty large family and our grocery bills are very high so gardening/freezing/canning will help reduce our grocery bills drastically.
Now before I get started with pictures, I want to share with you what I do. For most of my edibles, I plant a Square Foot Garden. A square foot garden is made out of raised garden beds usually 4 feet wide by 4 feet long. You can make them as long as you wish but only 4 feet wide because you can easily reach the middle. It would take a while to explain it all here so here is a website that will explain it all better than I can. Also, there is a book which explains it all and is a handy reference guide. I love this book and this method and this is my 2nd year of this gardening.
Now on to the good stuff.
I am sorry for this being such a long and probably boring post but I just had to share what I am doing in my non bloggy time! I will be sure to post pictures of progress made on my garden beds. Please check out the book and website. Anyone can grow a garden in these beds. It is super easy. Also, I don't use the Mel's mix soil because I cannot find big bags of vermiculite anywhere and the little ones are way too expensive for me to use in my beds so I bought some organic garden soil. It works just fine!
Ok I will quit rambling now. I hope you have enjoyed this post and until we meet again...be blessed.
