The only veggies I have left to plant are cucumbers, zucchini, and yellow neck squash. I’ll wait until after the cool weather passes, maybe Memorial Day weekend. I even got in a few succession plantings of lettuce and kohlrabi already. Because you can overplant in an Eco Garden, I tucked in extra herbs, like dill, basil, and cilantro—they make great veggie companions. There are a few extra herbs I decided to buy as starter plants at my favorite local nursery because they smell nice, like lemon balm, lavender, and rose geranium. I couldn’t resist even though I said I was only sowing seed this year!
The Eco Garden test gardens were also planted up early and faring well, even though the wind ravaged a few plants. It will be fun to see how all our gardens do this year. I’m hopeful that my gardens will be better than last year with all the soil improvements I made. And that they outlast the squirrels.
Tell us: What are you growing this year?
