Garden Journal 2012

Ok, this isn't a grand gardening post or anything. Basically I'm trying to journal my garden this year. I'm pretty lax when it comes to gardening. I throw some seeds in the ground, usually pound some kind of stake in so I know there's something there, water whenever, weed a little and pick the veggies when they're ready. Really simple right?

I bet I can do it better. I'd like to study planting by the moon phases more. And really watch the watering this year. Maybe do some companion planting and get into saving my seeds for next year.

So today, May 21st, I planted my potatoes (it's a new moon tonight, apparently I'm not supposed to plant today but bah, I'll pay more attention next time). I have 5 rows and probably about 50 hills. The morning is a wee bit breezy, it's almost 14C and there's a chance of rain. It's certainly cloudy enough.

Also my apple tree is blooming and my little lilac is really close. I haven't done any weeding in my flower bed and I still need to plant the rest of the garden. Hmmm... I best get busy.
