While I realize that grass clippings, leaves, and rotting vegetables don’t appeal to most of you, I call it “black gold.” Now is the time of the year when I can reap the rewards of our composting efforts. You can buy all the fertilizers that you want, but there is none better than your own compost. If you are interested in making your own, I’ll be glad to do a post on how we do it.
Some of the other early things that we can plant now are onions, radishes, and carrots. Our sister-in-law has already planted those in her raised beds. We’ll plant our early garden (English) peas next week. We’re in South Carolina in zone 8, and most of the other early spring vegetables will be planted around the first of April.
Right now I’m heading out the doorway to work on an improved watering system for the garden. One of our goals this year is to not only make the garden bountiful, but beautiful as well. Seeing the garden in the movie “It’s Complicated” gave me plenty of inspiration.
Spring planting time is my favorite time of year!
