I got my first seeds into the ground yesterday!
Here's a peek at the plan:
I'm trying carrots... again. I so want to grow them. I dug up the soil deep and tried to get rid of clumps. I even kept a little layer of compost on top. I'll put tomato seedlings all around them for shade and I'll plant some lettuce among the tomatoes (that's interplanting).
I planted half-rows of spinach, peas, and beets and I'll plant more in a few weeks - that's succession planting. Once I'm through with my peas, I'll plant kale in their place - that's also succession planting. There's a full row of swiss chard! I love swiss chard!
This is Isaac's little garden. He requested carrots and beans. I hope those carrots grow too!
I added a couple strawberry plants too.
And here are some herb pots. Notice the aesthetic weeds?
Fencing attached with twist-ties.
Raspberry plants are doing well.
I like the popsicle stick labels.
I noticed on Miss GT's link to frost free dates in yesterday's post that Ottawa's average frost free date is May 8th. What?!! I'm totally planting tomatoes next weekend!
