Starting Our Garden-Again

Today we planted seeds in hopes to begin a garden this year. We planted seeds last year but never made it past the seedling stage. I think I was just overwhelmed with many things at once. This year we plan to actually have the plants make it outside. :-)

So far we are starting seeds for:
Roma Tomatoes
Bell Peppers (Red and Green)
Sugar Snap Peas
Lettuce (Red Romaine and Green Leef)
Baby's Breath

In clay pots, we planted bulbs for Calla Lillies and Iris. We also have some Strawberry seeds that bought a few years ago. I don't have much hope that they will grow, but we will plant them none the less.

We are using the Square Foot Gardening Method by Mel Bartholomew.

I have plans for the front yard as well. When we first moved into this house, I planted Dahlia bulbs. They were the most beautiful flowers I had ever seen in my life. That was of course until Peter rabbit came and literally ate every bit of them! Why do we call him Peter you ask? Because when I chased him, he ran but he couldn't find his way back under the fence at first. That made my daughter remember the story of Peter rabbit and this his name. Let's hope that Peter has found a new home. :-)
