Like many other homesteaders in March I prepare my garden for new season. In general, I started preparing in January, but today there was a funny incident and I decided to devote my post to this event, and at the same time take part in Garden Journal Challenge from @simplymike
Today, searching for some things in the basement, I discovered a bucket of sprouted potatoes, which I forgot last spring. Potatoes lay for a year and suddenly sprouted. Thanks to these sprouts, I discovered them
The potato itself was small, but I thought that since it had not died in a year, I should put it as it should in the ground.
But not just to the ground. I have long wanted to somehow recycle old furniture. So I decided to use it as high beds and plant potatoes there
No sooner said than done
In addition to potatoes, I decided to transplant a young oak tree that grew near my house, in the place where I plans to make a porch
This time I did everything without an excavator :)
Well, for complete happiness, I arranged another round bed for zucchini, in the place where I was digging a trench for pipes
Last year I made 8 or 9 of these beds, but there were so many zucchini that we did not have time to eat them. I still have several boxes of zucchini from last year’s harvest in my basement. Therefore, this year I will limit myself to 5 beds.
March ends, and gardening matters are just beginning. I hope to share with you some more interesting garden news. And that's all for today.
