Yay! I just recently moved to a new place where the landlord doesn't care what we do and so theres two plots 240sqft and 380sqft (620sqft total!) My coworker is going to help me with everything and we will share everything. So far we dug up the lawn, tilled it, layered some chicken poopy straw and some soil we found from the small garden beds before. Now we need to get more soil! Probably going to get a big load of it in the next few days. We are making a seedling box from scrap wood and three old saved windows. It's like a tiny greenhouse yay! I also discovered the Olympia Seed Exchange. It is a magical thing. There are hundreds of seeds for vegetables, fruits, herbs, etc. you can take as many as you want for free and then you save seeds from your garden and bring them to the seed exchange for next year and for others to enjoy! It is so beautiful! So we got a lot of seeds ready. Just a few more days of preparations and we can get some starts sprouting! We are both very excited. We are going to make a fire pit and a picnic area near the garden too! fun! This is the first time I have posted on here. I just discovered GrowStuff half an hour ago. I am so excited to be a part of this community and learn from all of you and share our adventures in the soil!
