Hello, sorry it took me so long to get back to you....The Garden is growing and I am so excited to get more in the ground. But, I live in the city and don't have a lot of room. So, instead of one big garden, i have a lot of small ones. Plus, I am going to try planting in buckets again. Then, we also keep a garden at my mom's house. She lives on the river and has a lot more room than I do and different soil. I am looking forward to planting my tomatoes and peppers. Last year we had so many, lol, my neighbors really loved me! Well, talk to you later. I love your blog!!!!!
