it is a far cry from our last veggie garden, it isn't even big enough to provide us with all the produce we will eat this summer. The last garden was close to two acres and it's prime designation was a market garden, it required close to 90 man hours a week to plant, weed and harvest.
I am estimating this one will be less than an hour a day. Sometimes it m seems like a huge step back in order to move forward.

Here is the new garden in all its brown glory
Over the next few days I will be putting the transplants in. Some tomatoes: Golden Boy, plum, cherry and scotias. I have onion sets, and some garlic ready to go. I will be direct seeding table cukes, pickling cukes, a few zucchinni (for relish), lettuce, spinach, pole beans, broad beans, peas and kholrabi.
So that will be this years veggie garden, some will say it is a step down from what we had, I prefer to think of it as a small step sideways as we steady ourselves from the big leap forward.
