I really enjoyed reading all the comments about gardening. So many are going to be gardening for the first time this year. I’m in good company!
Thanks to random.org, we now have a winner of the Square Foot Gardening book. Enjoy the book, Trailboss! She also asked a question about gardening in the comments of the last post and I do not have an answer for her, so I thought I would ask all of you. Here’s her question:
I bought one of those cool thingies from Walmart to plant the seeds in. They are sprouting now and it won’t be long before I will transfer them outside. I’m not sure if I should put them in pots or directly into the garden though. What do you think?
Jana at The Summer House has a question about critters.
How would I keep the wild rabbits out….any suggestions??
I think that we may have this problem too. I’ve seen a lot of rabbits around here. We will probably build a cover made of chicken wire to go over the top of the garden boxes. There are a few pictures of how to do that in the Square Foot Garden book. I’m sure there are other ways to deter rabbits. Any more ideas about that?
Lauren wants to know about growing brussel sprouts:
Can you grow brussels in those gardens? I’ve never tried before, but they’re one of my favorite veggies.
I can’t find any specific info in the book about brussel sprouts, but I’m betting that you can grow them in a Square Foot Garden. I do think that Lauren deserves a prize for being one of the few people who would eat those little round balls of terror (or at least that’s how my kids would describe them!).
If you have answers for any of these questions, please type them up in the comments. One of the things I love about blogging is the chance to learn from others.
