We planted most of our garden throughout May. Some stuff was planted earlier than others, some things were started inside & some were planted right in the garden rows. We planted everything from seed & didn’t buy any starts this year. It seems like the garden is off to a slow start, but there’s a lot growing. Here’s how the garden is growing so far:
While I do most of the work in the flowerbeds, Farmer John does most of the food-type gardening. His favorite method for starting seeds is mixing his own soil & creating soil blocks. The genius idea behind soil blocks is that you start seedlings without needing hundreds of tiny pots. The consistency of the soil is such that it holds together on its own.
