Seeds that include tomato, peppers, corn, cucumbers, beans, peas, broccoli, watermelon, squash, lettuce, and herbs. I made some trellises and used some yarn to wrap around them to help the "viney" plants climb up instead of out. Containers that range from 5 gallon buckets to bushel baskets are used for container gardening. Some compost was added and a brick border was used to deter my dogs and other small animals from entering. :)
What was your inspiration?
I love being outside, so having a garden is the best reason to keep me outdoors and appreciating nature.
What are you most proud of?
I am so proud of the dedication and motivation I have had putting this project together. I have had gardens in the past, but this one by far has been rewarding and a blessing.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Do some research before diving right into a gardening project. This is what I have done and have learned so much. There are so many online sites that are very helpful and provide great gardening tips. Have a plan set in place (e.g., plant placement) before "digging'" into a gardening project. My first year of gardening wasn't as productive since I didn't research companion plants or spacing. Since my garden plot is limited with space I have introduced more container gardening this year. Also, since cucumbers and beans take up some space, so I am growing these plants up this year. :)
