It's All in the Soil
Looking really good so far. Let's just wait before we get too happy, though. And definitely planting different lettuce in a few days. I need way more lettuce than that. But everything else is doing well. Really liking the idea of keeping a full bucket of water at the end of each bed. Each square gets one cup of water twice a day. The water is warm and it goes right into the soil, not onto the plant tops. The plant tops do enjoy a light misting, but otherwise they look like they've been beaten up.
I remember last year's garden in comparison to this one and there isn't any. I'm sold on raised beds. Sold on mushroom soil. Sold on top soil. Now I just need Patrice Owens to teach me to can. Hint, hint.
