Now I'm in the high desert of Colorado. The season begins later, and ends earlier. There's less natural water, and I may actually have to water my vegetables every day (gasp!). Virginia I could almost forget about it. I tended of course, and watered on a weekly basis. Picked for slugs, and kept things healthy. However now I"m in a territory I don't know, so I'll have to learn as I go I suppose.
Yesterday my daughter and I finally got around to planting some tomato seeds. I tend to stick to heirlooms whenever possible, and yesterday we planted Brandywines. I'll do a couple of varieties of tomatoes throughout the season, and I'll start canning them in either August, or September, depending on the season here. In Virginia, tomatoes grow like weeds. They're hard to mess up. I hear that in Colorado it's not the same, and depending on the year they can grow great, or they can fail miserably.
My friend Salix recommended this wonderful man to make these boxes for me over the passed few weeks. The previous owner of this house had rabbits, and had a little fenced in area for her rabbits. I thought this area was perfect to keep the kids and dog, and *ahem* rabbits out of my garden. This coming up weekend I should have a delivery of dirt, so I can actually start working the ground. I'm excited to see what this barren space will look like in a few months.
Anyone else starting something new this season?
