It’s already time to draw up plans for a vegetable garden
Tuesday, March 11, 2014 — A container on my kitchen windowsill is filled with tomato plant seedlings. One morning a few tiny green specks could be seen atop the soil and a few days later a multitude of plants had sprouted.
My husband, Terry, gets the credit. He is determined to have a bountiful garden this summer. Already we are beginning to create a layout for planting. One garden box will be devoted to tomatoes. We will create a greenhouse affect with PVC pipe arched across the box and covered with clear plastic, patterned after a covered wagon. It is a design we saw used at the community garden planted at the One Stop Center in Westwood.
Many lessons were learned last summer when we filled two planter boxes with tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, lettuce, spinach and lemon cucumbers. Also, along our fence we planted raspberries.
