Spring is finally here, and I am so excited. This weekend, we will be planting seeds in the garden and clearing out those last remnants of leaves that helped protect the perennials from frost. Our vegetable list for this year has grown.
Vegetables & Herbs:
Artichoke (if I can finally get them to grow)
Beans, Bush – 2 types
Beans, Pole – 2 types
Lettuce – Romaine and looseleaf
Peppers – Green, jalapeno, orange
Tomatoes – grape, heirloom vine, paste
Bells of Ireland
We already have these planted (We put the asparagus and rhubarb in last year and the house came with tons of raspberries):
We are planning on expanding our edible landscaping this year too. All of those horrid prickly bushes are coming out and will hopefully be replaced by blueberry bushes. Also, we will be adding more herbs, strawberries and maybe some ground cranberries to the landscape.
Of course this list will change over time as we see what grows, what doesn’t and as we run out of time and space. But for now, this is our plan for the spring planting.
