Ah. Florida got a hint of fall weather lately. It’s been still close to 85-95 degrees daily which is common for us, but it dropped down to a blissful mid 70’s this last week with a gentle breeze and it is heaven!!! I have been planning the garden “overhaul” since the end of July, and I am happy (and belated) in saying it is halfway done! Queue the drumroll please!!
Ta-da!! Aren’t they beautiful?!? My sweet Husband, Tanner, built these for me mainly by himself. He, my 9 year old Son and my 8 year old nephew filled them with the garden soil we had delivered from our local nursery. That pile out front sure had some head turns from the neighbors! Haha. We got a 50/50 mixture of black cow manure and mushroom compost.
Of course I couldn’t contain my excitement any longer, I had to do some planting!! I was itching to dig in this mixture and see what I could do with it!! I planted all this in late September from seed starts just to see what I could get away with until it was too “chilly” (not a term used often here in eastern central Florida!)
Things are growing so well in this soil! I am having some trouble with germination of the brassicas. I have will have to re-seed if I don’t see sprouts soon! Other than that, I am so thankful to have these amazing beds to grow food in! This has taken a huge burden off my shoulders and I am glad I can get back into the groove of learning!
