After my father passed away my mom continued to plant a smaller version of his garden and I was more than happy when she agreed to come over to help me and Alex plant our own little garden which we hope will consist of cucumbers, parsley, broccoli, green onions, romaine lettuce and some wild flowers.
We had a lovely morning together and I honestly felt like my dad was with us, giggling at our efforts and gleaming with pride as his only grandson Alexander (named after him) happily planted markers, raked the soil, dug holes, buried seeds, and watered.
How to plant a garden
|Decide what you would like to grow in your garden, be aware of the amount of sunlight your seeds and bulbs will need|
|Clear your garden of weeds|
|Rake away large rocks and boulders while breaking up the earth and evening it out|
|If using bulbs, be sure to read package directions when digging your holes. |
Cover your seeds and bulbs with soil. Water your rows lightly using mist or shower settings.
|Sit back and wait for your garden to grow. Be sure to water daily and if possible collect rain water instead of using your hydro|
