On nice days in March, I was outside making places to plant. There were a few vacant beds near the house which I dug up and planted first. Then, Evin and Colin built me my tiered garden on the front hill. It will be a bit of a learning curve trying to figure out how to best utilize the space, but I'm excited. Apart from some Internet research and reading from a book about self-sufficiency on 1/4 acre, I'm pretty amateur...hence the name of this post (hopefully the start of a series to show the garden's progress).
So...above, you can see the state of the garden today. I have seedlings on the steps, respectable plants in the front bed, and sprouts in other beds. The first bed I planted was snowed on a few times, but everything is still coming along! I can't wait til I can harvest something. It's going to be the most exciting day ever.
