It is finally time to plant! And as usual, I am sad that I did not start seeds inside a few weeks ago, but it all works out in the end. We love to buy plants from our favorite local orchard. Really, they do a great job and I don't have space to start seeds inside with all my geraniums. Haha. I also can direct sow a few things. One winter I will start seeds inside. It is a promise!
This year, I have 2 cherry tomatoes, 1 pepper, marigolds, catnip, lavender, mint, oregano. The herbs are perennials. I am going to direct sow cilantro, basil, pole beans, bush cucumbers, and dill. I will have several containers in addition to my garden box. I really need more boxes. :)
I love the Square Foot garden method, it is so compact, yet bountiful. Here is a peek at last year's boxes.
I will miss not planting sunflowers. They took up so much room and I need the space for my pole beans this year. Sacrifices one must make!
