Spring Planting

We've got our garden all spruced up and ready for the spring! We cleared out all the winter casualties, tilled the soil, and added compost.

We also added two trellises and a couple tomato cages. The trellises are made from lattice that we removed from our patio. You can see it here in this picture taken before we moved in:
We felt like it closed in the patio too much, so down it came. (As you can tell this was during our sprinkler project)

Zach cut the lattice down to size with the table saw and I attached it to the back of the garden bed with screws.

I also made garden markers for all the new veggies we'll be planting over the next few months, including lettuce, spinach, broccoli, bell peppers, peas, and tomatoes.  Here's what we've got planned for our garden:

  1. That looks great! You're way ahead of me - my compost is sitting in bags on the porch waiting to be mixed in.
