POTD Day 54 Spring Garden....

Here is our little garden! Before you go being all impressed, please know that the big plants that you see were starts... the small sproutlets were started from seed by me though. And that soil is NOT any ol regular soil... it is a special mix, recommended by a guy named Mel who wrote the book "Square Food Gardening". It is 1/3 peat moss, 1/3 compost (from 3 or more DIFFERENT kinds of compost...I used mushroom, chicken poop and garden compost) and then 1/3 of vermiculite. He goes ON and ON about how amazing and perfect it is... Anyway, I do check on the plants everyday and things look good so far. Wanna come over later in the summer for a salad? YUM! Top Food is right up the street in case this garden doesn't produce... Angela and Peter said that their cucumbers had "reproduction issues" last summer...I hadn't planned on worrying about that but, since I am, I will be playing romantic music and putting candlelight out there for mine to bring in some cukes!!!
