I got my cabbage and cauliflower planted 1 1/2 weeks ago. My onions are waiting on the right signs and I transplanted my lettuce to larger pots today, while I wait on the garden to dry out enough for the tractor to get in there and lay off another row. I'm hoping the varmits that enjoyed eating my garden last year decide to have dinner at someone else's house this year. lol. Welcome to the group.
Hi Liz - Welcome to the team lol. You can get a pretty good garden going in the back yard. I did it the last 3 yrs we lived there. I mostly canned sauce but if you plan right you can get quite a bit in there. Let me know how it goes. If you go to Lowes web site they have a thing on making what they call 4 square gardening. I printed it out for Chris to make me. We have a huge garden but I want a salad garden up by the house.

I got my raised beds in the past 2 weeks, but now the weather isn't cooperating it is getting too cold at night so I will have to transplant my beans into pots and keep inside a few more weeks! Good-Luck with your garden, this is my first one in 10 years.
I can't change my past, but I can change my future!
HI! I am Liz, I live in Northeast Indiana. I am pretty new at the food storage thing. I have canned and made jam on a small scale but I would really love to create a garden and freeze/dehydrate/can enough food to get me through the winter. I have plans on doing square foot gardening for the first time this year. I would love to hear your suggestions and ideas for a newbie!
