I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter celebration yesterday. My family enjoyed a wonderful service, church breakfast, Easter dinner and later in the evening, a flashlight egg hunt.
In between church and our egg hunt, I was able to get into my garden to clear it out for Spring planting. I had let the garden get overrun with weeds last year after a really bad hail storm (softball sized hail ripped my plants apart). I lost a lot of plants last year and didn’t have the heart to get back in the garden to clean it up.
After 4 wheelbarrow trips to the back of the property to deposit debris and dead plants, it is ready to plant. I like square foot gardening because it is so easy to take care of. For me, I don’t have a lot of time to spend on the garden due to running boot camps and homeschooling. Easy is best for me right now.
I discovered an awesome garden planning tool to help me get done even quicker this year: http://www.gardeners.com/Kitchen-Garden-Planner/kgp_home,default,pg.html
Today it is about 42 degrees and raining so I won’t get any actual planting done but I am ready when the weather gives me a chance.
Gardening is an excellent way to feed your family healthy fruits and veggies, save money and enjoy the great outdoors together.
