Planting continues

As of today, I have yellow onions, broccoli, parsley, peas and spinach out in the garden, and tomatoes, peppers and basil under the lights. Cauliflower and first round of lettuce is now hardening and will go out today or tomorrow. So far so good.

I do have a squirrel that seems to like digging around in my beds. He doesn't seem interested in the plants themselves, he's just digging holes. But I'm worried that some plants will get damaged in the process. I haven't actually seen him so I'm not sure how exactly he's getting in. I'll have to keep a closer eye on the situation.

I also may have found a source for free, composted horse manure, already bagged. This will go a long way to reduce my overall costs.


  1. Free and already bagged? Amazing. For some reason, the squirrels only bother my beds in the fall. Spring, I suppose, they're too occupied with other things.

  2. We could use some of that horse manure here!!!! Jur was able to get a used chipper/mulcher, so our compost pile is growing fast. But we need the manure. We are slowly getting some out of the goat enclosure, but the rains this weekend put a halt to that for a while. We do have some stables down the road. I'll have to ask there if we could have some. But already bagged????? Now that's a dream come true!

  3. Square Foot Gardening is the most productive, efficient, and easy way to garden. Not only does it use just 20% of the space a traditional row garden, it saves water, and time spent digging and weeding. For more information on Square Foot Gardening please visit our web site
    Happy Gardening Everyone!
