It is April 1st where has this year gone? I do not know about you but here in the good old Pacific Northwest we have not had any break frim soggy cold weather. How on earth am I suppse to prep a garden or even spring clean if it is so yucky and cold. So I started planning the garden. We have lots of prep work to do cause we are garden sharing. We live in an apartment and my parents have some big unused area that we are converting. It use to be a garden years ago but the grow boxes fell apart and life just got in the way.

Well I started planning and bought seeds. I also laid out what starts we will need and now to plan the box layout and get cracking. We are planting banana squash, corn, beans, beets, pie pumpkin, carving pumpkins, butternut squash, green peppers, lettuce, snow peas, tomatoes, and some other squash we are still thinking about. I think we are going to try some like Indian growing. You place a root or bush plant in a 3 area with climbing beans and corn. That way your beans climb the corn and you have less work.

A hint for great peppers: place 1 or 2 match books in your hole, cover with dirt then use a start. The extra sulfur makes for happy peppers!

Garden tip: always rotate your crops. This will help avoid blight and other issues. A 90degrew rotation each year will do. If you have problems do a full 180degree rotation, or complete swap of all areas. Also till under your dead plants for a good boost to the soil.

More gardening fun to come so stay tuned. And if you can not have your own garden offer to garden share. You do a portion of the work, get some of the crop and enjoy fresh veggies!
