fresh start

We're chock full of new beginnings these days which is keeping me pretty busy.  But I'm still finding time to get the seedlings started for this year's garden.  I'm basing my veg garden on this design that chef Jamie Oliver created for Better Homes and Gardens.  So far I've got the tomatoes, broccoli and marigolds started.

It's designed as a schoolyard garden so I figure if Jamie thinks young children can tend it, it's just about the right level for me!  You can find all the specs on this garden plan here.

Anyone else planning a garden this year?  Would love to hear what you've got started or what you're plotting for summer 2011!

Great idea. I'd love to plant a big garden but I find the deer are the only ones who benefit. I always plant some herbs in a big planter outside my front door, beside my flower bed. It's so nice to just pop outside and have fresh herbs! Can't wait for summer!

I've been wanting to start a garden for so long now and I thought this would be the year but alas, our house hunting is taking longer than expected and we'll probably miss the planting season. Next year for sure. But for now, I'll just have to mooch off of gardening neighbors.
