So here is our garden. I think we are a little in over our heads. We have 4 garden beds that are 4ft x 12ft. We have 16 tomato plants for crying out loud! So, in our garden beds we are growing:
corn (to be planted)
Whew. I'm not gonna lie to ya- it's been a lot of work and it's not been the cheapest project. Honestly, I'm not sure if the veggies we will yield will off set the cost. However, next year we won't have to buy as much of the starter supplies. We had 3 garden beds last year but they were half the size of the current ones and not as deep, so we redid those. At the end of the vegetable garden beds we have flowers planted. For the flower beds we just planted seeds, so we'll see what happens with that. We also have 8 rose bushes. I could probably do a whole post on that, and one day I shall.
I definitely think growing your own food is worth it though. There is nothing more satisfying than going out to your garden and picking a vegetable and eating it. The taste is significantly better and you know exactly where it came form. Also, there is always something new to learn with gardening. This is just our second year growing food and I feel like I know nothing. There are so many different ways you can save yourself time and money, and we're still trying to figure all that out. We knew absolutely nothing last year and had pretty good success. I am super excited to see how everything turns out!
