We used to live on a lake, we had a garden that was on top of a sceptic bed, it was huge, lots of weeds, and it had been started by the previous owner. So every year I would go out and buy plants and add to it. And every year I would get down on my knees and weed everyday, and do a lot of cursing… And then we moved to Pakenham… Rock and clay and 3” of soil. So no veggies for a few years. Until lo and behold I got the bug and wanted to grow my own, so I built my own grow lights, planted my seeds, read up on various types of gardens and voila… I have tomatoes, beets, onions, carrots, beans, green peppers, cucumbers, zuchinni,geraniums,I even started shasta daisies in the square garden and other varieties of flowers in it, they are doing very well and I will transplant them soon.
Now I garden, pickle, jam and salsa, if Pakenham can do that to me, she has to be a beauty.!!
I only weed my garden a half hour, at the most per week, yes I said per week, if that, and it is producing already like crazy. I do water every day, but I have no problem with that.
I am actually thinking of redoing my flower gardens the same way. :)
What a joy!
