I was working in the raised garden beds yesterday and snapped a few pictures and thought I would share them. We currently has 16 raised garden beds along the main garden path. So far we have carrots, beets, cabbage, broccoli, broccoli raab, radish, celery, strawberries, peas and onions planted.
All the beds are 8 feet long by 4 feet wide about have about 8 inches of soil in them. A couple of beds towards towards the end are a little bit deeper because I propped them up on logs so they’d be somewhat even due to our sloped yard.
I heard Wilco had some Walla Walla Sweets in so I grab a bundle of my favorite onions and planted them between rows of radishes. Companion planting rules!
Have you planted your radishes yet? What are you waiting for? Now is the time to do it.
This is how my first round of radish seedlings look like right now. Hopefully in about a month or so they’ll be ready to harvest. Last spring I was able to barter a flat of french breakfast radishes for some avocados.
Cabbage for the Handsome Husband. Cabbage isn’t my favorite, but he’s Irish and loves it so I grow it for him.
The gourmet blend beets are beginning to poke through the soil. It appears these ones will be yellow and red.
Garlic. It’s coming along nicely I think.
And lastly, the square foot garden. So far I have sugar snap peas, celery, onions and strawberries growing in 4 of it’s 32 squares. I think today I’ll plant a few radish and beet seeds.
Have YOU started planting seeds yet? If so, what?
