So here is my seedling plot:
I also have a strawberry and raspberry plant in seperate containers. I am so excited to not only start this process, but learn what I can. What's the best type of soil, what is the best mulching techniques, what is the best fertilizer (apart from compost, which I was unfortunately denied the right to have no matter my best arguments)... I have to admit I cheated on my Lent promise to reserve my readings to spiritual only persusings with this book, which has helped me out so much already about the where/when/how/what questions. It might be a while till harvest time, but I am so looking forward to saying 'That cucumber came from my garden. Don't those strawberries taste so fresh?'
The backyard will also have some flowers and general landscaping, but that is a second priority to the consumer garden.
I am also looking into getting a rain barrel, but prices are ridiculous, so looking into DIY'ing that.
