3×3 Vegetable Garden
Well…it’s slightly more than a foot…but the idea is that you grow one vegetable within 1 foot square.
My garden is 3×3 by 1 foot deep. My handsome husband deserves a pat on the back for constructing this little garden!!
So we sealed all the wood up, built it and filled it all up with soil/compost. Then I planted in the seedlings of my growing veggies. Some of the seedlings are a bit young I think, so I’m hoping I haven’t moved them too soon, but some of them were definitely ready for a bigger growing space! I also planted the lettuce and carrots which instructed to sow directly.
Also, the pepper seeds didn’t germinate with the other ones…don’t know why, they were in the exact same conditions, but oh well. So I have attempted to just plant straight pepper seeds. I didn’t read up on this or anything, I just grabbed the seeds from a pepper I was using for dinner and planted them in the soil…so we’ll see what happens there!
So there are 9 vegetables planted in my 3×3 foot garden, and I can’t wait for them to start growing to eat them hopefully in a few months!!
Can’t wait to see how my little Garden Experiment turns out!
Well it’s been 1 week since I planted my vegetable seeds…and some of them have started to pop through the soil! I’ve got a few pumpkin shoots, Kale, Lettuce and Broccoli so far! Just itty-bitty little baby plants! Now I realized I planted quite a few seeds into these tiny pots…and I’m also not trying to run a farm or anything, so I will have to narrow these down to the healthiest little guys and then go ahead a plant them outside once we build our little garden bed.
Since I’ve never done this before..aside from my own personal “Googling” that I’ll be doing – any first hand tips on how to “thin the crop” without disturbing the other seedlings, or even choosing the right ones would be helpful!!
I’m quite excited about this little project! I really can’t wait to see how it turns out in a few weeks/months time. But seeing the first bit of greenery in the planter pots has made me quite happy!
Little Baby Vegetables!
Last year I discovered that it can be very difficult to get your hands on a pumpkin in the UK! I have some lovely friends who went out of their way to find me some pumpkins so that I could make some delectable pumpkin pies, and roasted seeds, and pumpkin brownies and other lovely things you can do with pumpkins! It’s even hard to find pre-tinned pumpkin puree! And forget a pumpkin patch – the closest option is about 45 minutes away, and definitely doesn’t compare to Howell’s!
So I have decided to take matters into my own hands! I’m making my own pumpkin patch!! Obviously, it’s not a farm…but HOPEFULLY it will satisfy all my pumpkin needs this fall!!
Watch this space to see my little pumpkins grow!!
Have you ever grown pumpkins? Any tips or advice?
