It’s time to plan gardens. We have a new house and plenty of yard space to transform into patches of edibles so work will begin soon. We’ve made a short list of what will be included. As of now, a medium sized vegetable garden and two smaller herb gardens are planned.
Herbs to be included:
- Basil, Sweet
- Lemon Balm
- Catnip (Something for the rodents we keep as pets.)
- Squash – Yellow
- Sweet Potatoes
- Tomatoes, Roma & Beefsteak
- Peppers – Bell, Datil, Poblano, Anaheim
I am sure more will be added as we get into it and know exactly how much room we will have. I would like to plant artichokes, I think that may have to wait a year. Asparagus is another one but I’ll need to make space around the yard elsewhere as keeps on giving and I don’t want to risk digging it up by getting the gardenspace ready each year.
I have all the organic pest control I should need. Neem oil has done the job quite well in the past and should suffice now. Organic veggies and herbs throughout the season should get me cooking regularly.
