Garden planning and ideas……

February 23, 2010
By

I am planning our garden and getting pretty excited. I got a magazine to read after my surgery called Birds & Blooms and the title was VEGGIES. It is really a great magazine to read and answered several questions I had about what type of garden and veggies I wanted to grow. I’m also going to grow a herb garden! It also has a rockin’ recipe for Dill Pickles that I can’t wait to try with cucumbers that we have grown!

Here are the instructions we will be using for our raised beds.

We will be using the Square Foot Gardening method in addition to containers for certain vegetables/herbs.

We will be trying our hand at the following:

Vegetables:

Tomatos – Roma, Cherry, and a heirloom (haven’t decided yet)

Peppers – Green, Red, Yellow, Orange and Chili

Corn

Cucumbers

Onions (leeks, green onions)

Lettuce (3-4 varieties)

Spinach

Carrots

Squash (butternut – so I can fix my favorite soup – Thanks Chef Ben from Mosaic’s!)

Eggplant (Check out Rachel’s Recipe here!)

Beans (Green Beans)

Peas

Garlic

Potatos (I think – I’m still trying to figure this out – would like to do both potatos and sweet potatos)

Broccoli

Herbs:

Basil

Thyme

Lavender

Dill

Parsley

Cilantro

Chives

Creating this garden will help Bear and I to be one step closer to healthier eating and self sufficiency. I’m hoping I will be able to trade some vegetables from our garden for eggs and possibly other items.

    Sounds great! Not doing a garden this year. With my hubby gone, just seems too overwhelming to me! I'm going to check out your raised bed plans! Thanks!

    It sounds wonderful! I would go for the cherry tomatoes. I love them. You know I have never grown an edible tomato. Nada, zilch, nothing! I think that I'm going to give up on my dream of growing wonderful tomatoes. I think it is because we don't get a lot of direct sunlight. Oh well!
    Can't wait to see what you do.
    Have a great weekend!
