Today we went to one of my favorite places, Capital Nursery.
Before we left I sat down with the UC Davis vegetable gardening guide for the Sacramento area and planned my crops for the next 12 months.
I then rendered a drawing of my garden in google docs and planned where the crops will go, I made a spreadsheet.
So, armed with the power of planning we journeyed to Capital Nursery and purchased artichoke and chard starts, various seeds, used containers, a hose splitter, and about 1,500 lady bugs!
I found aphids on one of my zucchini plants and decided to fight back with the mighty little ladybugs.
