Happiness is having little homemade greenhouses on a window shelf, filled with tomato and broccoli seeds. Further happiness is having most of the materials on hand to fence in (including fence *over*) a nicely sized section alongside the driveway for garden space. And anticipation is having the plans for a do-it-yourself Earthbox and figuring out what you're going to plant to start off the garden this year.

That would be 5 boxes, just for the record. 6 plants each.

Broccoli/peas (3 each)
Strawberries
Cantaloupe
Tomatoes
Spaghetti Squash/Straightneck Squash/Butternut Squash (2 each)

Next year, more boxes will be added. And so on and so forth.

The test plantings last year worked out quite nicely . . . except for the neighbour with goats that refused to stay fenced in, which is why I had no raspberries or cantaloupe. Peas went wild, though.

Oh, and for them's that are interested, the first link below is to the mini-greenhouses, the second is to the DIY Earthbox that we'll be testing out this year.
