Let the Journey Begin

I have spent the last few days making a list of what to do to start my 4 season garden.  If anyone out there has any suggestions I am open for any help I can get.

1.  Get planting schedule for area.  If you live in Northwest Florida here is a great website to get these dates.

2.  Figure out where garden will go.  When I first moved into this home there was grass covering the entire 1/2 acre lot, except the 5 bushes planted by the front entrance.  At the time I had no plan for where beds, ponds, or garden, ect. would go.  So I made a bed along the far edge of the East side and planted my garden.  I was sure of one thing, and that is I did not want to put in a garden, which will consist of raised beds, and then have to move it.

3.  Decide what plants I want to plant for the second summer planting and then for the fall planting.

4.  Re-read “Square Foot Gardening”.  This is the method of gardening I will be using.

5.  Get garden beds ready for planting.  Since time is of essence to start my late summer garden, I am planning on starting with just a few beds and then add more over time.

6.  Start seeds that can be started indoors.

    For my fall crops, I’m growing snow beans, pole beans, radishes, beets, lettuce and carrots.

      I’m not sure, but I don’t think I can grow snow peas here, but I’m hoping to plant another round of summer veggies. This will be my first try at this but I think I have enough time. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Crap. Good luck with your garden. I’ve been working on my for five years and I feel like I’m just beginning! I’m a bit thick-headed when it comes to gardening, so I’m sure you’ll do fine. But you’ve got all those tropicals to choose from…wow, that would be hard for me to choose from. One tip for the veggie garden: go vertical. It’ll look nicer and you’ll have more room to plant.
