It’s almost time to plant our garden!
Just as soon as the ground thaws out long enough to be tilled.
Just when it seemed that spring was coming to Nebraska…we woke up to days and days worth of freezing cold weather again.
Oh Sunshine…I need you. Where did you go? Where are you now?
Okay…enough whining (hopefully). Some day soon it will be so hot I won’t even want to turn on the oven to make brownies. (yeah, right)
So, just pretending that I really will be able to get my hands into some soil soon…here’s the garden plan we drew up. We try to rotate our crops each year. By the way…I have several different garden spots. We started with one when we first moved here…but every year we keep tilling up more because we just want more…MORE! We’re saving a little bit of yard for soccer playing though. Aren’t we nice?
(Well…you know my name is Simon…
and the things I draw come true…)
(PLEASE tell me you remember that song!! Or am I just that old?)
So, I can’t draw as well as Simon…but I did my best. (Yeah, it’s pitiful, I know.)
And, obviously I didn’t take the time to draw this to scale. There’s actually a good bit of yard between “onions” and “tomatoes” that is our official soccer playing field. In the picture I drew, it looks like I’d have to shimmy sideways through that area to get through.
Someday when things are green and lovely (but before the weeds have grown in) I’ll take you on a tour of our yard. Until then, you get to see my little garden drawing.
We’re also hoping to plant a bunch of sweet corn with a friend who has a larger garden area…we’ll see if that works out!
Sooooo, are any of you planting a garden this year?? What are you planting?
