We are attempting a new hobby. To be honest, I'm a little skeptical on how successful it will be. Especially since I somehow killed every single plant I've ever owned. But we have been talking about this for awhile, and now that I'm home most of the day, I might be successful in keeping these plants alive.
It started when our friends told us they had an old greenhouse given to them that they didn't want. Which included these awesome cedar boards that we could have. So after an afternoon of enjoying lunch and the boys some manual labor, we came home with these. Matt cut them down to the appropriate size...
|You see it right, folks. That's still snow on the ground. |
And I'm well aware it's already May.
While Matt filled the bed with dirt, I went to work on planting our future dinner dishes inside. The last frost isn't until mid-late May (just about when Texas is wrapping up their planting season), so we have to keep them indoors until then. Yes, that means that we only have about 3 months of harvesting, but I'm determined it will be a good three months!
I did a little research on what to plant and came up with: lettuce, snow peas, squash, strawberries, raspberries and some herbs. Seeing my little sprouts makes me so excited that I've even gotten this far! (The middle section is my squash...it must be a late bloomer.)
