Garden Plans

I have pretty much finished the “plan” for our 2013 garden. I am getting really excited!

I got to plan the garden this year and am super excited to get things going! Last year we grew sweet potatoes and beans successfully… don’t laugh, that was a great achievement!:) I am trying to step up this year and work harder, gardening is not my favorite thing in the world, but I am definitely getting more into it. I just hope I don’t fizzle out!;) We’ll see what all actually gets planted!

 Here is the “blueprint” I made of what we hope to get done this year:

I read about planting the potatoes and beans together as shown on the upper right of the plan and can’t wait to try it out!

Sweet Potatoes from 2012

We harvested sweet potatoes!!!

We finally dug up the sweet potatoes that we planted last year! We got a lot more than the last time that we grew them, and our biggest this year is about twice the size of the biggest last time around! Can you tell I’m a little excited?

The big one!

And we got just a little dirty! It felt like I had an extra layer of skin!

Green Beans

We got a bunch of green beans from our garden, we had to get a second container when we were picking them! We are so excited, last year we only got a handful. This year we may actually have enough for a few meals! We also got a few sweet peppers, and the tomatoes are coming along.
