Anyways..fast forward to this Spring..we are finally in our own home with our own yard and I decided a cutting garden is exactly what I needed! Adam and I got to work spraying off a patch of grass I had marked off then we dug up the sod (which is a lot more work than I ever gave it credit for!)
Next I added in some peatmoss and well composted cow manure to add some much needed nutrients back into the soil and then the fun began!
This year I have dedicated the majority of this bed to my floral love..zinnias. I was quite embarrassed when I realized how many seeds I had so in they went (this is going to look gorgeous when it starts blooming! I planted approximately 1,000 in here!)
Also added to my cutting garden is:
- dahlias; and
- sweet peas
I will write another post with an update on my cutting garden as soon as the blooms begin to open. Can't wait!!
