I have never planted a vegetable garden ..threw a squash seed or tomaoto plants in among my flowers so here the question. I have a 10 by 10 foot area gets sun all day. The neighbor is remodling his house and has lots of flower bed soil he has to get rid of. Was wondering if I could just dump that on the grass and amend it with my compost and grow veggies. Or do I have to remove the sod?The thought of removing sod has me thinking Farmers Market!
We have had wonderful weather this weekend , got the pond done yesterday still have a few things to plant .Got 4 junipers and 1 cypress for the back. Still need some "drappy- fluffy" things to hang over the rocks till the junipers get there. Added some new little fish. My favorite green house sold me barley pellets for the pond instead of the barley bails. Said they would work better since I had to complety drain and redo the pond. Kids dumped a very large can of fish food in my pond last spring and it has been a mess . The alge was so bad , all summer I used every chemical in the store that would kill it. I spent everyday clearing the pumps and filters. I was not too happy. This spring it was green slime. . It will take a few years to get it back to looking natural, Macy Jane loves the fish ,but she doesn't like the water so were ok .
this winter,especially the one that can plant year around.
I thought winter had left Montana, but Monday we got 8 inches of snow. Did get the pond cleaned the weekend before. After letting the pond freeze up this winter , my fish were still live, so I must have dug the hole deep enough. The new project is growing fast, the raspberries must like their new home they have babies everywhere. And the quaking ash is starting to bud. This has been a really long winter. The back yard has had snow since October.
Went to my daughter's in Dubuque for Easter . It is so pretty and green there already. Planted four Forsythia's and a Austrian Black Pine in her garden. I didn't much care for the 2 nights of tornado warning . Egads I take a Montana Blizzard any day over that.
