Welcome March ~ 2 0 1 7

Our goal for March is to continue pulling weeds.  The recent rain we've had this year has brought in oodles of weeds, ALL OVER!

Front yard, green house {explained in a bit} and side yard where the garden is located are just covered.  We've been slowly plugging away at pulling them, it's a vicious circle.  We will also pour boiling water on the weeds, this works just as well as any harmful herbicides that I refuse to use.

After we get the weeds pulled we'll start putting veggie seeds and some starts in the ground.

Can't wait for some fresh veggies.  Our winter garden didn't really take off this year.  I attribute it to the fact that I injured my leg and haven't been able to get out into the garden and fertilize, everything just seems to be growing so slowly.

Our herbs that we potted are doing fabulous, even the strawberries are hanging in there.  We have two peach trees to plant yet, need to figure out placement for them.  Our Border Collie has other ideas for our main backyard so most of our garden will be planted on the side yard where the girls were.  The trees can go in the main part of the back yard, but will need to be Border Collie proof.

Our greenhouse still needs to be completed.  We've decided that since 4 of the seven councilmembers are against chickens we just as well use that space as a greenhouse.  We still own our property, but they get to dictate what we can and can't do on it.  The hen house itself will make a nice storage and potting area.  We can put shelving units in the main area outside of the hen house to start seeds during the cooler months.

We'll also start trying some veggies in the front yard, sort of integrate them into our landscaping, per code, we can do this as it is considered landscaping.

We'll be putting bush beans, cucumbers, zucchini, okra, tomatoes, artichokes, and lots of peppers. Probably some others I can't think of off the top of my head.

Enjoy the weather and gardening, it's going to be a beautiful time to get our gardens going.
