The start of our veggie garden. Actually our whole backyard.
Ever since I went to Bali in January, David has been as motivated as me to get our backyard more "green" or should I say, "less desert like." I love living close to the trails so that I can mountain bike or hike whenever I want, without getting in the car, But I love how lush & green Bali was, so why shouldn't our backyard at least be someone like that? We have been working on it for a couple of weeks now & finally have something to show for it. Well...no actaully edible veggies yet, but at least boxes with soil & the hopes that it will grow...
These 2 books have been a big help with figuring out what to plant & how to plant it. I would for sure check them out if you want to do square foot gardening or if you live in a very dry desert place, like Arizona. Here are the links to them. Square foot gardening & Extreme Gradening .
My goal is to post weekly updates about our backyard & especially the veggie garden.
& remember EMBRACE THE CHAOS.
