Default Spring Is Coming, Time to Think about the Garden!

Every year we grow a pretty good sized garden. Now that the winter is starting to break, I am itching to get out there and getting my hands dirty. I wish I could garden year round up here because there is nothing like fresh veggies! I usually grow tomatoes, squash/zucchini, mustard, jalapeno and bell peppers, garlic, peas and green beans.

This year I am going to expand the garden by about 10-15 feet and grow more mustard than I did last year. I also want to grow more squash. Nobody here seems to eat the peas or beans that much so I will probably not worry about them.

Anyway, I figured I would share some pics of my garden from the last few years..

If you look close, you can see a mailbox in these next couple of pictures. That was our old mailbox that I recycled to use as a place to store garden tools and things like twine, etc..

Here are some more. You can see how I use hay to mulch the garden. It works pretty well at keeping the weeds down. You have to add it 2 or 3 times a season, but at the end, you can just till it under and it will compost over the winter.
