Almost Spring

Justin and I have been preparing our little garden; working the soil, composting, gathering our seeds, sprouting, etc.

Last year we tried and failed. The soil wasn't right, the spot didn't get enough sun, failed. This year we are trying again, and not giving up! We have raised beds, lots of light and good soil. We so badly want to be good at growing vegetables! We are even thinking about apprenticing on a farm sometime in the future. Maybe, possibly. But I have hope for this season to be better than last...

Any master vegetable gardeners have any good tips?

Tomato sprouts

Radish sprouts

Lucky!

i also tried gardening last year and it failed, all except for the lemon balm i planted. but i'm hoping i can plant a few things this year...only in pots! i'm hoping to move by summer so i'd like to bring my garden with me. :) good luck! i can't wait to see how your garden progresses!

p.s. i also seriously considered being an apprentice on a farm last year. it didn't end up working out, but i may still want to do it in the future.
