Spring Garden 2012 update no. 1

I just spent the last 2 hours out back {Husband spent more yesterday roto tilling the yard} and finally the Spring Garden is in full effect!  
Watering "before"

I have a few containers, I bought the soon to be discarded wine crates from Total Wine and More for $4.99 each and saved a few more for our soon to be chickens!  I planted sage, lemon balm, onions, cherry tomatoes and kale in the containers....

I labeled old paint sticks {a few survived from last season} and laid down more seeds in the ground.
Had to buy some soils since our compost isn't done. Going to makes something with the bags though, don't worry, that's way too much not recyclable plastic to toss! 
I gave it a nice watering and hopefully it will rain tonight, the clouds are looking mighty full today.
I'll let you know in a few weeks when the sprouting seedlings start popping up!  

Happy Sunday.


  1. OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG YAY!!!! I loooooooooove when people garden! I'm going to be doing my first *real* garden this spring. Love love love love. I can't wait to see how it progresses.

  2. This is really inspiring. You must be somewhere warm, we are still below freezing at night, and all these posts of people getting spring gardens together is making me anxious that I'll miss lettuce season.
