Last weekend I created my fences based on Square Foot Gardening specs. This weekend, I strung them up with nylon garden trellis netting. I raked my beds and added some compost and then planted. I sowed some onions, lettuce, and spinach. I did some maintenance tasks on my strawberries, raked some leaves, and organized the shed some

Moving to the front yard, I took some pH readings and added some elemental ammonium sulfate to reduce the 6.5 rating in my beds in an effort to lower it for my strawberries and blueberries.

Overall, I’m very happy as everything is in place to get a great jump on this season!
