First Blog Post - Welcome to my Georgia Garden

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

My name is Kris and I am an avid DIYer who enjoys improving my home inside and out.  I always wanted to build a vegetable garden, but never got around to it.  It wasn't until my daughter turned three last year, that I thought now is the time.  So last year in April 2010, I built an area about 16 feet by 4 feet out of landscape pavers.  We planted corn, snow peas, squash, and cucumbers in that little bed.  We also planted watermelons, cowpeas, pumpkins, and bush beans in other areas of our yard.  Like all gardens, some things did great and some did not, but we learned a lot last year and it was a great experience teaching my daughter about gardening.  Needless to say I am hooked on vegetable gardening now and have completely expanded my approach.  Here are a few pics of our garden from last year.  I am going to post pictures of our new expanded garden for 2011 and update its progress throughout the growing season.

Thanks, Kris. We are doing the square gardening here in zone 9a Florida and I hope to harvest some squash similar to what you have. I am the gardener and my husband is the square foot garden builder. We started this year 2011.

Thanks again
Andrea

That is cool, your not too far away down there in Florida. I only planted a few mounds of squash last year, but this year I have planted 10. I hope to have a big harvest. Good luck to you.
