Time to start working on the garden

Recommended Posts

I have tried container gardening here but it just is not working. We have only been in this house for about 3 years and our focus at first was getting it livable. It was a HUD foreclosure so it needed some TLC and lots of elbow grease. This summer we got the chicken coop in and now have 8 chickens. We are getting about 6 eggs a day. Hopefully the other two will start laying soon.


This fall I will start working on raised beds in the backyard. I am going for U-shaped beds. and hope to get 3 or 4 put in. I also hope to squeeze in a green house. We have such a short growing season that I really can't plant anything til late May without working about snow and freezing weather.


This spring I hope to be able to afford fruit shrubs like blueberries, blackberries and plums. I have a couple of trees that need to come down and I want to replace them with dwarf fruit trees. 


I have my garden notebook printed off and put together. I did that last week. Now I just need to start planning on what I want to grow. Wish we were further south so that we had a longer growing season. It is already starting to cool off here and I am no where near ready to plant cool weather crops.
