Our First Missouri Garden

Those of you who know me, know that I get really excited about my vegetable garden. I know it's not the time of year to start planting things, but I had to get it started. We modeled this garden after a friend of mines. This garden is the same size as our Corpus Christi garden (4x20), but it is raised. We laid down chicken wire, landscaping cloth, mulch, and then the cinder blocks. We won't plant any veggies until next year, but I couldn't wait to get it laid out. I did order some blueberry bushes and am working on finding some strawberries. As you can see from the pictures, I have plenty of room for some corn, wheat and some apple trees...lol! You think I'm kidding. In the spring, we'll be fencing in the yard and planting all kinds of goodies. And then we will be Little House on the Prairie...you know Laura Engles was from this area...Ha!

Well, I actually do live right next to the Laura Ingalls homestead... in DeSmet, SD. SO - cme for a visit. I can't believe you can plant blueberries... not in SD... they would be little ice balls.
