Garden 2012

Today was my first day getting into my yard this year and prepping for the growing season.

Once I got everything raked and weeded, I trimmed back my raspberry bushes. I attempted to transplant some of the canes but we’ll see how it goes.

In my raised bed, I planted basil, dill, oregano, spearmint, radishes, and green beans. Then in my three large planter pots, I planted miniature bell peppers. I have another spot by the garage that I can get about 2 rows of garden out of. I planted cucumbers, tomatoes, and zucchini.

We’ll see how it goes. I know it’s a little early in the year to plant things in my zone but with such a warm spring so far, I hope I’m able to get some more time out of the growing season. By the time the seeds poke their little heads out of the dirt, we should be well past the last frost. I think we are already, but in other years I wouldn’t even attempt to plant anything until May 1st.

So if we do manage to get everything to come up and produce, it was $8 for the seeds for enough vegetables to feed us all summer, aside from lettuce, potatoes, and onions, which I didn’t bother with, but they’re all cheap enough that it seemed like it wasn’t worth the trouble to plant them in a space where I could plant something else.
