Last weekend we finally had time to plant our Raised Bed Vegetable Garden, and can't wait to see our veggies start growing! We're trying out the square foot gardening method (which we've never used before), and I'm shocked at how many vegetables it looks like we'll be able to grow in such a small space. Here's what we planted:
- Green Peppers
- Red Peppers
- Red Onions
- Sweet Onions
- Red Potatoes
- White Potatoes
- Sugar Snap Peas
While I'm so excited about our garden, my favorite part of the weekend was getting our ferns on the front porch . . . I love “Hanging of the Ferns” Day around here! Until moving to Alabama I really didn't love ferns, but something about living in the South and seeing a slew of ferns on the front porch just makes me happy these days. And I'm telling you what, the ferns at our local nursery were just incredible this year.
(I'd love to somehow keep ferns through the winter and not have to re-purchase them this year, but we don't have anywhere to keep them in the winter. If you've ever tried keeping ferns indoors over the winter months I'd love to hear your suggestions.)
We also bought several plants to start working on our planters, but haven't quite gotten them planted yet . . .
If you're considering starting a raised bed garden at home, you may want to check out this Greenland Gardener 6-Inch Raised Bed Garden Kits for just $29.98, shipped.
You can also get the All New Square Foot Gardening Book for just $11.98 (regularly $19.98), and if you're here in the South and love flower gardens, our favorite gardening book is Harvey Cotton's Easy Gardens for the South. He's a local author and the book is incredible . . . not all that penny pinched but a must have for serious Southern gardeners!
I'd love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
