Of course the sun came out after I took these. Here is our attempt at spring gardening. In the second to last bed are the Sequoia strawberries and in the last bed are red, yellow and sweet onions, cauliflower, cabbage, and a lettuce leaf medley. In the back, if you squint, you can see sweet peas trying to make their way up the trellis.
The triangle bed on the left will be a vertical garden and house our butternut squash, cukes, baby pumpkins, cantaloupe, and sugar baby watermelons. Next to that we have the peach tree in blossom. The next to go in will be the carrots (in 2 weeks), we'll plant a square every two weeks and hope that it keeps us in carrots. We also want to plant some spinach, but it's so late already, that I'm sure we'll be picking it when it's still 'baby' spinach. The third bed over from the house will house potatoes, beans, marigolds, peppers and some herbs.
The fourth bed is still undecided, but might contain a zucchini, a summer squash, or maybe raspberries if I can figure out how to keep them from straying beyond the grow box.
As you might be able to tell from the photo, we're using the square foot garden method (sorta - no facial hair for Mr. Organic, and definitely not the straw hat).
We're going to try growing tomatoes up the trellis in the strawberry box, but there are so many varieties I like, that it's impossible to choose only three. There will definitely be a roma, a sweet 100 cherry, and a Brandywine. Or maybe a Beefsteak. Or an Early Girl. or......
Anyone have a favorite tomato or any guidance for us? We're rookies at this gardening thing. I'm so excited for this stuff to start growing and fill in!
