I am apart of the Stonyfield Yo’Getters. All Opinions are my own, I just love sharing amazing brands with you that our family also enjoys.
Marky, Marky quite contrary, how does your garden grow?
With peppers, corn and tomatoes a plenty setup all in a row.
I’ve talked about my families amazing garden now a few times. It started as a small 4X4 plot in our backyard and now it takes up most of the sunny space along our fence. It’s my husbands happy place. When he gets home from work he says hello to all of us and walks straight outside to water his garden. My thumb isn’t as green as his so I tend to stay away unless I need an ingredient. Having a suburban garden has helped change the way we eat. My kids are learning how to garden like their father which will be helpful if the zombie apocalypse ever happens.
Over the years our garden has transformed with our lifestyle. We brought in organic dirt and started composting everything we could to make the soil more rich. We were sent some of High Mowing Organic Seeds in an assortment of great vegetables. We used to plant a squash plant every year but this year we decided to use the large space that it takes up for other things. Each year our squash came down with something. Too much rain one year caused to the plant to turn to mush (yes, literally broke apart at the base in a big mushy mess), another year it contracted powdery mildew on the leaves and had to go through some heavy caregiving.
We start our seeds early in recycled plastic bins. Your kids can start little flowers in Stonyfield Greek Yogurt cups. They are the perfect size to replant. This year we were able to speed grow them inside with the Aerogarden. After the final freeze we planted them into the garden.
Last year we also planted some annual crops. A raspberry bush and some asparagus. It was exciting to see the asparagus come up this year but after doing some reading it’s better to wait until the second year to harvest. Now it’s gotten so big it has tipped over onto the second row. Everything’s coming up nicely though and soon we will have a new new variety of vegetables. We tried our hand at corn this year as well as brussel sprouts and broccoli.
