Victory Garden Update: Week 4

I am a day behind due to an internet SNAFU. No worries though, the garden is coming along nicely! Here’s my progress for the family Victory Garden

It has been constantly raining over the last week. I chalk it up as good, except I have not been able to get outside to build my boxes. It looks like I will have to resort to building them inside!

As per the instructions on the package for the herb garden, once the “true leaves” make their appearance:

Oh my, but how that hurts! No worries though; I will make sure these micro basil will go into a Caprese salad for lunch!

Finding Pallets For Compost Bin

It seems that the nursery is just giving them away? I plan to build a nice, simple 2 compartment compost bin. No worries, there will be a tutorial for that!

That’s all for this week. If you are interested in finding out about more Square Foot Gardening, please visit my store link over at Amazon and buy the book so I can have a half cup of tea.
