Anyone planning on growing vegetables this season?
Linda and I decided to give it a go and after consulting my agricultural adviser out in Nova Scotia we even going to try staggering them.
According to info I have found our last frost is around May 7 - 12 this year I think that may be true for most years but this year I wonder given our mild winter.
Anyhow I picked up a bunch of seed and small seed trays from LV and those seed starter pucks from HD and Linda did the admin on working out when we plant what and today we got the range of herbs planted and some corn and tomatoes.
What we trying to do is only plant sufficient for our needs so here's to hoping we get a decent bit of luck in germination.
Then I got some woodwork to do making us some standing height beds.
We going to try out planting them in square foot format when time comes to put them outside.
Going to try keep records of it all so we know what worked and what did not to decide end of year if we bother for next year.
Not really doing it for any major savings more just to have a shared activity and our own produce.
Last time I did this was in the army in the bush. But that was in a country where sunshine was abundant all year round. It was water that was in short supply lol.
So anyone else give it a go or am I crazy???
