Previously I talked about planning for the garden.  Well, it’s sort of finished. Here is the plan so far:

  • Artichokes
  • Basil
  • Bush Beans- Provider
  • Beets- chioggia
  • Carrots- Scarlet Nantes and Purple Dragon
  • Celery
  • Corn- Fisher’s Earliest
  • Cucumbers- Green Finger,
  • Eggplant- Ping Tung Long Eggplant
  • Lettuce- all heirloom
  • Peppers- Joe E. Parker, King of the North, Early Jalapeno, Golden California,
  • Potatoes
  • Radishes
  • Squash
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Tomatoes- 10 Fingers of Naples, Moskvich, Brandywine, Pruden’s, Honey Drop, Sweetie Cherry, Green Grape

Waiting for rain to subside to add the compost and mix in with the leaves from last fall.  This year I’m trying just plain old cow manure, at least 2 inches to each bed.  Good ol’ stinky fun.
