First Big Plant

So I've been holding back on the pics to try and make this a more step-by-step process.  I should just let it fly and get the stuff up here.  We got all of this stuff in on leap day, February 29th, 2012.  We planted 40 cabbage, 24 brussel spouts, 16 broccoli, 12 strawberry (4 I planted today), 3/4 row of spinach, and 1/4 row of lettuce.  I mentioned the carrots, onions, and potatoes in my last post, I hope.  25 potato plants, 1/2 pd. onions, oz of carrot seed.

That would be my homemade compost bin in the background.  Zero dollars. That's frugal.

Strawberries, Brussel Sprouts, Lettuce (seed), Broccoli, Cabbage

Strawberries: First time experiment


Umm, quit looking at my crack.

Not sure what this strange cracking in the soil is.  We have had a lot of rain.  Not sure if this is disconcerting.   I'm a little worried that this is some sort of pest.  We have had a remarkably warm winter.  They are going to be a problem this year for sure.
