Time to Plan the Garden!

Z and I sat down with paper, pencil and our seed packets and finally planned the garden.  A few weeks ago we prepared the beds (although they need to be fertilized) and hope to plant some early seeds this weekend!  In the house we have some seedlings going and Z has been doing a great job taking care of them.  Although I never have any luck with seedlings, it is a good experience for the children and hopefully this year will be different.  So far we have planted cilantro, some flowers, cherry tomatoes, pumpkins and swiss chard.
In our garden this year we will be planting: beans, peas, sugar pumpkins, carrots, swiss chard, cucumbers and zucchini And in pots we will have lettuce, arugula, cherry tomatoes, basil, cilantro, parsley, mint and rosemary.   Z has given his little garden to Lil'C and has decided the big garden will be shared by he, Daddy and I ;)  I'd like one more small bed but I don't think this is the year, I'll probably just add another pot.

What are you growing this year??

I am going to plant tomatoes in containers this year. Even though Keith doesn't want me to.

Pot gardens are a great way to go, convenient picking by the door and easy to maintain. No weeding but they do require more watering and some additional fertilizer.
Farmet Ed came by (finally)and plowed up our new Kiki's sunflower space.
Hopefully it will be ready for this Spring's crop.
Gardens make for great adventure spaces.
Love U Guyz,
