We had a fun weekend filling our gardens and pots.
Two rows of broccoli, one row of brussel sprouts, and one row of kale. We’ve had success with broccoli in the past, plus our family loves it, so we know that’s a win.
Watering daily until they’re established, then we’ll slow it down a bit. This year we’re going to be diligent about fertilizing and feeding these babies too. Right now, they’re sitting in all kinds of fresh compost and egg shells. Hopefully that helps produce more food.
In the other garden, we are letting things grow from our compost. We had all kinds of baby sprouts and let them grow until they were identifiable. These sprouts are cantaloupe. We spread them to opposite corners and we’ll see what they do this season. Hoping to get some nice fruit, but if they’re not looking good in a few weeks, we’ll fill the garden with something else.
I read last night about growing sweet potatoes and now I’m bummed we missed our chance over the summer. Going to definitely plant those after our spring garden is finished. Yum.
Can’t wait to see what grows up and works for our lazy gardening style! Piper planted half the garden this year so hopefully she’s as excited as we are.
