We have been planting in this spot for several years, so the soil is rich and fertile. In my new plots (we are going to do some raised beds this year), I'll add my compost from the pile that I started last year. (If you don't compost, I would suggest that you start! It's a great way to get rid of your raw vegetable/fruit scraps, leaves, old dirt, and other stuff, and it doesn't take a complicated science to get some results! Just do some research...you can get as fancy or simple as you want!)
I'm thinking about planting some new things this year and planting more herbs than I normally do. I am going to try planting basil near my tomatoes...I have read that it makes the tomatoes sweeter while repelling certain insects. Sounds good to me!
Oh, before I forget, here are some pictures of the dress I made last night...
Sewing the bias tape on...
Topstiching the bottom piece.
(I am going to get a better view...do you like my curtains?)
The finished product...a cute, spring green, size 2T pillowcase dress!
I am looking forward to posting pictures of our garden progress! The daffodils are blooming here in the Foothills of NC! Spring is right around the corner!
Blessings to you!
