Four Ways to Start Your New Garden at the Cabin this Summer

It’s time to start preparing to head to the cabin for the summer. If you’re planning on spending most of your summer days at your Northern Wisconsin vacation home, you might be interested in starting a garden. Here are some things to consider when creating your garden at the cabin this year. 

Know Your Space

Figure out what kind of space you have to start your garden. If you’ve got a large yard space, you might want to dedicate part of it to your garden and section it off with fencing. If yard space is short, but porch space is generous, you can look for plants that do great in pots for areas that get a lot of sunlight. Be sure to get your cabin ready for Spring now so that you can start enjoying your outdoor spaces as soon as possible! 

Decide What You Want to Plant

Are you looking for vegetables or herbs for your summer recipes? Or maybe a small strawberry patch? Or you might just be looking to add some color and beauty to your outdoor space with greenery and flowers. Do your research and decide what you want to tend to over the summer months. 

Think About Sustainability 

Whatever you decide to plant, don’t forget to consider the amount of care it might need. Are you planning on only going to the cabin on the weekend? Then you might look for plants that require less tending, such as petunias, tulips, potatoes, or zucchinis. 

Make a Shopping List

Make a list of all of the supplies you’ll need before you go shopping. That way, you’ll only need to make one trip, and you’ll have plenty of time to spend setting up your garden and planting.
