In my effort to be a bit more green, a bit more in touch with the earth, and to eat better, I plan to work a number of gardens in my yard.
I tried to grow lettuce last year but I was not good at watering it. This year, my gardens are going to get a higher priority.
The same day I dug out the strawberries I hit the planter boxes by the back steps.
There are eight boxes but I am only taking on the top four right now. I should also mention that Shawn plans to take out these planter boxes this summer but I am going to enjoy them while they are there.
I spent about 20 minutes adding dirt, adding water, mixing with my hands. It was wonderful!
They say playing in the dirt, gardening, is good for the sole.
I cannot wait until I am able to step out the back door and collect fresh lettuce to toss on a sandwich or serve with dinner!
