So I decided to go with a container garden this year. I am a little sad, because this will mean less plants and no onions, cantaloupes, etc. We're keeping it simple this year, just some tomatoes, peppers and lettuce if I can find it.
I've decided to do something a little different as far as planting the tomatoes go- to keep my costs low, I am going to try planting in the 50lb rabbit feed bags! A picture tutorial will follow.
If this works, I save the costs of buying all those containers and I won't have to do any weeding! Not to mention it will be a little something extra that the bunnies will be helping with, since they are already going to provide the bulk of the soil I'm planting in! Might as well use their feed bags to further assist in the planting!
Now the biggest problem is going to be how to keep the chickens away from the ripening fruits and veggies this summer. :)
