Garden Time

March 21st, 2008 by NashVeggie Leave a reply »

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:

  • Rosemary
  • Basil, Sweet
  • Oregano
  • Lemon Balm
  • Thyme
  • Sage
  • Parsley
  • Catnip (Something for the rodents we keep as pets.)
  • Peppermint
  • Spearmint
  • Cilantro
  • Dill

Vegetables:

  • Squash – Yellow
  • Eggplant
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Tomatoes, Roma & Beefsteak
  • Peppers – Bell, Datil, Poblano, Anaheim
  • Cucumbers
  • Onions
  • Broccoli

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.

      Hey there. I just stumbled across your blog and wanted to say hello. I’m from Memphis, but my boyfriend lives in Nashville and I’m there a couple times a month. Just visited the Veggie Cafe this past weekend and wow, that was awesome. Memphis does not have any full veggie restaurants.

      Anyway, I’m going to add you to my blog roll at Vegan Crunk (http://vegancrunk.blogspot.com), where I post mostly daily pics of food I create from vegan cookbooks or my head. I’ll check back here often.
