Garden Seedlings

Today I started some of my Seedlings. I’m growing Lettuce, Cabbage , Bell Peppers and Corn. The Corn will be planted directly in the ground. I have to wait about another week or so to plant the Corn according to the package. I’m going to be planting more things but for now I needed to get those seeds started.

We couldn’t get out in the yard today to do more cleaning because of the heavy rain we had. It’s suppose to rain on and off for the next couple days. I’m still hoping to get out in the yard tomorrow and attempt to do some picking up of stuff.

I did a measurement of the yard I want to plant in. It’s 16 ft by 13 ft or 208 square feet according to a chart I looked at online. I think it’s a decent size space. I already have 2 “raised beds” and a beck fence for the corn. I want to grow potatoes, onions, and garlic. So, I have to figure out where to plant those.I’m also looking at companion planting. I don’t want to “kill” anything before I get started.

I might have to draw out a map of the space and get ideas of what can go with what.I’m hoping to get some of what I plant this year. If, I get half or all , that will be great. Since, this is my first time gardening on this scale , I’m not getting my hopes up. I need to see what other seeds we have so I can get them started in the next couple of days.

Thanks for stopping by.

Til next time.

  1. I’ve heard for corn you need at least two rows…have you heard that? That’s a pretty good size for a garden. Not too much happening out here. All the space we could want but no money to build boxes or somehow fence to protect from deer. But that’s ok. Small scale stuff 🙂 can’t wait to watch your garden grow..no pressure lol.

  2. No,I hadn’t heard of needing 2 rows of corn. I will definitely check it out. Thank you for letting me know. Small scale is good also. I will definitely be blogging about the garden.
