Hello! I'm fairly new to organic vegetable gardening, my first was last summer. I was pretty relaxed about it, didn't measure anything other than with my feet, kinda guessed at stuff, etc. so we had three different kinds of corn, were short on tomato plants, and a groundhog ate all of our bean and green bell pepper plants before we could get the fencing up. I for two days, I would literally stand watch and chase the giant furry enemy from our yard!
Anyway, I recently moved and am starting a new garden where I live now. We have a little less space, which is disappointing, but I'm still excited to get started--only 2 weeks behind this spring!
I have three children, two boys and a girl--ages 13, 10 and 4 (my daughter is 4). I try to include them in the gardening, but their interest is limited. The boys helped maybe three or four times last summer. I doubt I even get that from the teenager this year!
My daughter, on the other hand, went out with me daily. She had her own little patch of dirt (what she called her garden) that she would dig in while I worked in the garden.
I have a wonderful fiance who is almost as excited about gardening as I.
I hope that I have something offer here, because I have a lot I'm sure I can gain!
