Okay, so I have 4 beds planned. Only one is built at the moment and I direct seeded a bunch of stuff since it's been super warm here this week. I started:
bush garden peas
arugula and wild rocket
lettuce and mesclun
and a few "helpers" like lovage, lemon balm, marigold, nasturtium, dill, etc.
I will trellis the peas once they are a good size. I will do some succession plantings of the shorter season stuff.
This weekend I hope to build the other beds, or at least get them started. I want berries, but DH and I are still thinking about that.... We've put a lot of thought and effort and $$$ into it so far this year and while I want a super lush edible yard, it can be done in bits and pieces.
Anyway, I have strawberry plants that are in a pallet planter along with herbs that overwintered from last year.
I haven't grown tomatoes from seed- they don't direct seed well, right? I'll start them now and get grow lights (my neighbor has some I can use, phew!)
I also have cucumbers (4 types), squash (2 summer types and 4 winter types), eggplant, corn, and broccoli to plant. I am not sure how to best do that, because I need lots of space for the squashes. Anyone have space saving ideas for those? And I have 6 types of tomatoes... How do you stake those? I don't want to buy cages, so how do I do this cheaply? Bamboo?
