Look what we’ve done:
Because obviously we’re insane and think that we need to add another 225 square feet of raised beds to the existing 700 or so square feet we already have. And by “we”, I hope you all know that I mean the DreadBrewer.
DB assures me “I”m not going to plant more plants, I’m just going to plant more variety!” But I’m pretty sure that no matter how you look at that statement, we’re going to have more plants.
To fill these new beds,we’ve got a ton of seeds growing in the garage. We’ve got:
And these seedlings are in addition to the beds of garlic, leeks, and onions that we’ve already got out in the garden.
In defense of his
craziness zeal for gardening, DB does do the bulk of the seed tending himself. Now that we got a timer for the grow lights, I don’t even need to remember to turn them off in the morning before I leave for work.
I am getting a little concerned now that DB’s started to make comments about setting up a second seed starting rack in the upstairs office. And he’s talking about pulling down the holly tree/bush in the front yard and replacing it with a fruit-bearing tree. And adding more blueberry bushes to the berry patch. And we bought the stuff to make 2 additional trellises.
I guess I better start reading up on canning and pickling and preserving. To help preserve the “variety”, you know…
