We have never been ones to learn from past mistakes though, so we jumped in with both feet again this year! On Saturday we headed to the store and picked up a few bags of topsoil and some gardening soil, and then we let the boys pick out a few seed packets. We ended up with carrots, peppers, pole beans, zucchini, and...something else I think? I can't remember? This is probably why our gardens never make it.
We filled the bed with topsoil first, and then after that we added a layer of gardening soil. We figured it was best to give these doomed little plants the best start they could have. I tried to help the boys plant the seeds, and Jack did great actually putting the seeds in the little holes that I dug. Luke...kind of scattered them around like he was feeding a chicken, so...you know...we'll see how that goes.
We plan on building another little raised bed next to this one for the rest of the seeds, and we also will need to build something for our pole beans to climb, you know...if they actually sprout.
There is a chance, however, that we will have a bigger harvest than our first garden back in 2009, in which we reaped TWO WHOLE CHERRY TOMATOES.
Not even kidding you guys. Two.
How about you? Are you planning any gardens this year?
