Step 2 Gardening in Spring

Posted on

SO another nice day here in the southern Ozarks, and I finished doing my spring prep on one and a half of my beds (the short ones).  I also did some planting in them too.

This bed was done with the hay from the goat pen like the pea bed was and also the composted saw dust.   Fun thing about that composted saw dust though is we’ve been mixing in chicken manure and wood ash into it for a few weeks and it’s made it a bit more “airy”.  The foreground half of that bed is planted with onions (yellow) and the back half is lettuce (red romaine).

The bed is the furthest “back” one we have, and the plan is when the lettuce is done I will be putting my zucchini in there.  I planted the onions close together so they could give us some small green onions.

This is the other portion of the bed:

This is my spinach that I [planted.  I had forgotten I had gotten spinach seeds!  I was a nice suprise when I found them getting my lettuce seeds out.  I am hoping they grow well.  Everything from the stick to the right is spinach.

Also one more thing:

This is going to be my herb garden as where I stood to take this pic is where our outdoor kitchen will be built.  I am planning on having Silver “box” the buckets so that they look better.  This way the herbs don’t escape or take over my whole herb garden (love mints don’t you?).

That’s it for now.. we’re getting ready to have a cook out in this nice weather!

Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…
