Special Delivery

 I came home today and checked the mail.  Hooray! No bills and two packages that are garden related!

As you know part of the experiment this summer will be square foot gardening.

I purchased planting templates from Alex over at The Corner Yard. I also picked up a few copies of Minnie Rose Lovgreen's classic Recipe for Raising Chickens. One for me and one each for two friends who raise chickens.

The templates will help keep the proper spacing in the square foot beds. Could I have made them myself? Sure! But there is something to be said about supporting a fellow gardener and blogger. Keep up the good work Alex!

The Chicken book is charming, and the anecdotes about the author in the back are very interesting. It's super informative in a down homey way. I don't have any chickens, yet.

Anyway - off to transplant some tomatoes and start some Swiss chard.

Until next time, Keep Digging & Eat Well!

  1. So glad you like the templates. Good luck with them!

  2. The templates are a good idea -- I may check them out. I won't know until my seeds come up how good I was at "eyeballing" the spacings as this is my first year using the "square foot" technique.

  3. Alan - follow along right here to see how they work out!

  4. I really happy to find this internet site on bing, just what I was looking for : D besides bookmarked .
    some genuinely interesting details you have written.
