Getting the Garden Ready

Over the weekend we spent some time getting our Vegetable and Herb garden ready for the quickly approaching growing season. The garden is roughly 45ft x 20ft, with a total area of 800 sq ft usable planting area (minusing the edging and pathways). This will be our 3rd year keeping a fairly decent sized garden, considering it is more a hobby for us than anything else and we are really excited about it.

Hopefully in the next 4 weeks we will be able to start transplanting some hardy seedlings, we will certainly keep you all posted on our little side project!

A friend of ours pointed out that there are some wonderful videos on YouTube that help explain in plain english the most important aspects of gardening, here is a great example:

Thanks for the comment on our blog about Facebook and the 3 yolked egg. I will have that picture up by the end of the week hopefully.Your blog is really nice. So much information and done so well. Just noticed you live in Westport, Mass. My Auntie has lived there forever and I used to go to visit her in the summer when I was a teenager. I remember also going to Horseneck Beach. It is a beautiful place from my childhood. Love it!
