garden plot update
I've been negligent about posting about our garden plot this spring. Here it is as of today. In mid March we double-dug and added 3 bags of compost/manure plus worm castings. At that time, there were some survivors from fall plantings of arugula and lettuce, including enough arugula for one delicious arugula wrap.
We switched from a path to two stone spots, which I think will give us more maneuverability while taking up less space.
Here is our master plan:
Note the coordinate system... A3... you sunk my radicchio!
So far we have planted: arugula, radicchio, dill, lettuce, leeks, beets, radishes, carrots, red onion, kohlrabi, chard, kale, echinacea, chamomile, spinach, and parsley.
And are enjoying our perennials, some of which were gifted to us last fall: hyssop, chocolate mint, echinacea, thyme, oregano, sage, chives.
The exploding chives bring joy to the early spring—their strength is admirable.
