Right about now is the time of year that I get antsy for spring to arrive. Especially since I just received the March Special Gardening Issue of Martha Stewart Living (my complementary subscription since Blueprint will no longer be running as a print magazine - just their blog Bluelines). Now, I know our garden will never be like hers - for one her garden is larger than the lot my house and yard sit on, etc. And my husband and I are really picky and wouldn't eat half the vegetables she grows. No, we are aiming more for a basic garden.
Our basic garden plan:
One row of 6-8 sweet corn stalks
Half a row of tomatoes
Half a row of peppers (green & hot)
Lettuce (maybe just in containers on the patio)
A row of cucumbers
A row of pumpkins (the baby white ones and maybe the gray kind)
Blueberry & Raspberry Bushes
Our herb garden plan:
Here is a pic of our yard plan...we have lots to do this year...putting in the patio, garden, herb garden, a raised flower bed and getting our grass really growing well in our backyard.
