I am super excited about Garden 3.0, let me tell you! We were gifted some lettuce by our neighbor and I planted it last week. I wasn’t really sure what to do with it because it needs partial shade and for the most part, we just moved our boxes to full on sun. That is, we thought we had until last evening. I noticed that the back half of the far box was shaded in the late afternoon, so I moved the lettuce there.
Today I went to the Farmer’s Market to pick up the transplants for this year. While I think it’s awesome to start from seed and probably more fulfilling, I know my limits! So to market I went. It was such a beautiful day! I could really get lost at the farmer’s market. Sigh. There were so many choices, but I kept to my decision of sticking with what I know and what we will eat. Here is the 2010 Garden:
- Better Boy Tomatoes
- Slicing Cucumbers
- Golden Sweet Peppers
- Yellow Squash
- Bib Lettuce
- Red Lettuce
I also decided to pot the herbs instead of putting them in the box with the big kids. I’ve never had a problem with any plants getting choked out, but they are so pretty, I wanted them to stand out a bit. And having them on the back porch makes them even more accessible.
I am so ready to eat these veggies! Grow babies grow 🙂
