How we planted our garden

Pin It Now!
I did't do the best job of planning out my garden last year and it got really messy when our vegetables started budding.  We could not tell what was a weed and what was a veggie.  

how to organize your garden

This year I decided to put more effort into organizing my garden before I planted.

I started with some of the seedlings that I started to cultivate early in egg cartons and also the seeds that I had.  I then made a diagram of approximately where things were going to be planted.

Here are the peppers that I started sprouting.  I don't think that there is any benefit to doing this unless you have a very well rooted seedling.

Here is my garden all planted.  You can't see anything is some parts because those are the seeds.  I made sure to water the first watering very thoroughly.  Keep your diagram somewhere handy if you have questions about weeds or what things may be.  I am also going to go back in and add markers for each plant.  

Now come the hardest part... just waiting on Mother Earth.

We decided to convert all of our plants to edibles this year.  If you are not read for a large garden yet and want to start small, see our easy herb garden post here, or our living wall here.  You can modify this to be a few veggies instead.

  1. I love the bricks around your garden! I have some laying around my back yard I think I may use them as a garden border! Great idea!
