We Have a New Baby

It’s a broccoli baby.  I had no idea this is how broccoli grows!  Henrik isn’t the only one learning a lot in the garden.  We also got to harvest and eat our own lettuce tonight.  I have never had a garden (except for our amateurish attempt last year) and I can barely keep houseplants alive.  This is such a great adventure.  We are participating in the consulting program with Your Backyard Farmer (YBF).

So far, we have had our dirt delivered.  Henrik would be thrilled if we did this every year.

We covered the grass with cardboard.  The slice of dirt in the middle is from our planter box from last year.  We definitely biggered our garden space.

Lots of trips with the wheelbarrow

We formed the beds

And tucked them in with straw

We uncovered the beds for planting.  I did a lot of research on hoses.  We picked soaker hoses from Mr. Soaker Hose and we bought them from mr.drip.com.  The hose is lead free.

Our seeds and transplants from YBF.

Henrik planted the peas.

Our happy lettuce

Hope you are having fun in your garden this year!
