Starting my garden

Spring is in the air and I LOVE fresh veggies from the garden and I love to start gardens!  Every year I thinking "This will be the year it produces all my favorites".  Well, this is a picture of last years garden from start to finish.  It looked like this a week after I planted.  LOL  I had netting placed around it to keep out the goats and chickens.  Well, the goats trampled it.  We no longer have goats!

Last years garden

I've decided this year to do a square foot garden. It is where you build a wooden box and put soil in it. Then mark off square feet and plant your plants in a square foot. So here is my box. I moved it in front of an eyesore in the backyard.

 This years garden spot I started looking in to square foot gardening a long time ago but never found what I was looking for. I was looking for a spacing chart to know how many plants to place in each space. Usually it is one per square foot but sometimes its more. Here is a great blog post to let you know how much to plant in each square foot.

72 hr Kits

I was searching for 72 hr kits online because it has been weighing on my mind for awhile.  I am the type of person that likes lists and patterns, so I went looking for a list for 72 hr kits.  This is what my kit looks like right now.  It is WAY out of date (4yrs) and not very functional.  Tell me, who is gonna lug a suitcase full of soup!  Not me!

This morning I was looking at other blogs to see if I could find a good 72 hr kit that fits my family's needs. This is one I found.  She even gives the calorie count. I will be changing some things but this gets me started.
