I tried growing a garden for the first time since I was a child this year, and did not do as well as I would have liked. I am hoping to purchase some equipment and supplies to do a more proper job at making a garden next year. I am afraid that I did not put enough time and preparation into planning my garden. Despite some failures, I did manage to get several things to grow well this year, and for that, I was very proud.
I need to buy the equipment to set up a proper field in order to plant my garden in next year. I guess that I need to buy a plow attachment for my tractor. I will also need to buy some fertilizer and manure or compost of some sort. I guess I should read up on the benefits of different types of compost. I have a mind to try making my own compost at home, and maybe I should look into supplies for doing that while I am at it. I am hopeful to have a much larger garden next year than I attempted to grow this year.
I am going to try to grow as many different types of herbs and spices as I can, because for me, nothing is better than the ability to cook with fresh ingredients. I had success growing basil this year, and also with rosemary. I am going to need to buy some seeds and supplies to help me properly germinate the seeds. I think I am also going to try to go ahead and plant some winter or autumn plants. I have heard that garlic needs to be planted in the fall, and I would very much like to try my hand at growing garlic, so I guess I need to buy some seed garlic among other things.
