Growing Garden6:17:00 PM
We planted a garden in May, and slowly it has been coming along. I've learned a few things a long the way:
- No matter how far apart squash may look when planting the garden, it WILL overpower it.
- Water lettuce often. All our lettuce is bitter. I think it may be too late to fix it.
- Mark what you plant. I started some little seeds inside in April and planted them outside later. I wasn't sure what they were and didn't find out it was spinach until it died.
- Basil is a delicious and pretty easy plant to have on hand. I wish I had more herbs.
I'm sure I have more to learn as this is my first time really planting a garden. It's very satisfying to eat from (other than the bitter lettuce). I'm very excited to start canning tomatoes.
