Garden Goodness & Compost!

So I’ve really been thinking of what I want to plant this year seeming now I have a backyard!  I don’t want to go crazy but I do want to plant what I know we will eat. So no experimenting yet.  I drew out my yard and designed my own layout.  I know exactly where everything is going and what supplies I have to purchase to create the look I want.  There will be uplights integrated in this garden and some hanging plants along the fence.  Also, I found two round stepping stones in the corner of the yard shoved in a corner among dirt so I will buy one or two more to create a small path.  My goal is do this without spending a lot of money and re-using materials already available.

  • Scallions
  • Garlic
  • brocoli
  • Cabbage
  • Tomatoes
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Snap Peas
  • Cucumber
  • Bell Peppers
  • Green Beans
  • Red Leaf Lettuce
  • Spinach

In my herb garden……

In my medicinal garden…..

I think that is all for now.  I have a game plan which I will be tackling it this weekend.  I’m hoping there isn’t a lot of clay in our dirt as this is Texas.  Otherwise I will have to research ways to make the dirt workable for planting.  I’m buying some of the longer to harvest plants as a starter plant not seed to speed up my garden a little.  OHHHH did I mention I’m doing this for less than $100 ???

Pictures to come!!!

Stay tuned…..
