Ghastlie Blog Hop Day 8/ garden week 29

Tomorrow is my day on the blog hop! I am so excited to finally reveal what I made. However, before that happens I figured I better do my weekly update today since tomorrow post is going to be long enough as it is!

So week 29 what can I say. Nothing much changed from last week. The temperatures are staying pretty cool. Today it is 11C and the long term forecast is showing the daytime high for the next 7 days to be around 3C. They are also calling for snow this week-end. I hope it passes or if it doesn’t that it goes away. Winters in Saskatchewan are long enough so any extra days without snow are a blessing.

The garden still looks like this. Mr. Pickles hasn’t gotten any further with the tilling. This is another reason why we cannot get snow yet..lol

I am in the process of changing the layout of my garden. From what I have seen online I think that shorter rows may be the option. So instead of one 30ft row of lettuce I would do 2 15ft rows or 3 10ft rows or well you get the picture. Hmmmm 6 5ft rows might be the magic number though.
Next year I think I am going to try and grow a few things on trellises. The cucumbers take up so much space so going vertical may be the answer. I would also like to try growing the peas like that too. However, the problem is if I have more space then I will have more room to plant more things!  Anyone have any suggestions on what to plant?

And Now for something completely different

  1. I'm thinking the same thing for next season for my garden -- more trellises, and more early greens. Then I can rotate in a second crop come summer.

  2. Trellises are really great to grow a lot of veggies on. I have so little space here at the house that I trellis a lot.

    Can't wait to see what you made!
