Garden Note #87: Spring Planting


Last summer we built five raised beds out of the leftover lumber from our garden shed. By the time we finished them, it was too late in the growing season to plant a whole lot. I did manage some heirloom tomatoes, peppers and flowers…all of which I want to do again this year. My list so far-

6-8 heirloom tomato plants

3-4 pepper plants

3- Scarlet runner bean

3- Pole beans (in wood tubs)

 12-15 Zinneas, Cleome, Morning Glory, Black Eyed Susan Vine, etc.

3- Squash

I’m considering one whole bed devoted to herbs. What are you planting this Spring?
