A few changes in the garden 2012
I had been reading a gardening book during the winter. I decided that we should plant the rows from side to side, instead of end to end. I realized that meant that the rows would be shorter but we would get more of them. We needed enough space between each row to walk between them. We had decided we wanted to plant a larger assortment of vegetables as well. I discussed this with my Hubby and he agreed. He had decided that we needed an upraised potatoe bed beside the rock boarder. I was reluctant but finally agreed.
We decided to start growing some of the vegetables in the house earlier to give them a good head start. We planted even more than we did the first year. We wanted lettuce, spinage, carrots, peas, sweet peas, string beans, corn, cucumbers, two kinds of potatoes, chives, onions, dill and of course tomatoes to begin with. I suggested that we start them in the house and tranfer them to the green house and then move them to the garden later. He agreed so we got started. We didn’t see my kitchen table or out our window because of all the seedlings until June.
We do great with onions every year. We eat them fresh all summer long and we freeze them for the winter. We hang others to dry over our wood burning stove as well. We use this wood burning stove during the winter to bake bread and pizzas. If you place a slab of marble in the oven and bake your bread or pizza on it you get a stone bake oven flavor.
