Yesterday was gorgeous - warm and full of sunshine, the kind of weather that calls you outside to pull back branches and inspect for new growth and dig around in the earth. We went to the store to buy a hoe and shovel and supplies so my husband could build me this:
(As you can see, the sun is missing in action today.) The frame wasn't absolutely necessary but I did want to build the earth up a bit (we still have to get some dirt) and I think having a contained garden will make it more likely that I will actually keep the weeds under control.
The summer we were married I filled our city apartment balcony with pots of tomatoes and herbs but this is my first ground garden and I'm looking forward to expanding our vegetable repertoire - maybe peppers and zucchini and some salad greens along with the tomatoes.
I still have a few weeks to wait before it's safe to plant, but these days will be here before we know it:
Are you making a garden this year? What do you want to plant?
