Over the weekend we were able to get in the garden and plant some seeds, and I can't tell you how good it felt! Spring is such a thrilling time of year, and the beginning of the gardening season is full of hope and promise.
For many months now, I've been waiting rather impatiently to plant the Red Russian kale seeds that my blogging buddy, Sue, sent me last year! I'm so excited to see how they do and try this variety of kale. I'm excited about the radishes as well, because I think the sprouts are just about as delicious as the actual radishes themselves (here is my favorite way to use the sprouts).
We have done a ton of work on our garden in the last year, with adding a lot of garden beds and fencing in the area to keep the critters out. We are adapting it as we go and see what works and what doesn't work from year to year.
I took this photo to show how bare it looks now, because I can't wait to take another photo in a few months and compare the before and after!
We tried to stay as frugal as possible when creating the garden beds and fence, so a lot of the wood is reused from other projects or from materials given to us by family (like the green beds you see up front). So it has a little bit of a hodge-podge look to it now - let's call it rustic haha - but when everything starts growing and blooming it will really fill in and look awesome. I can't wait!
PS - Congrats to Jennifer Wood on winning the seed starting giveaway! We will have another seed starting giveaway coming up in the next month or two, so be sure to check back for another chance to win.
