Spring Garden Notes

This is the bean, herb, and cucumber bed. Next up: build a climbing frame for the cucumbers, thin the beans, and start spraying with tabasco and water for rabbits. So far they’ve left the bed alone, but my neighbor warned me that our neighborhood rabbits love green beans.

This year we’re growing:

  • Tomatoes (10 plants – several varieties of red tomatoes, plus yellow and grape tomatoes)
  • Hot peppers
  • Eggplant
  • Spinach
  • Lettuce
  • Cucumbers
  • Beans
  • Basil (lots, both regular and Thai)
  • Cilantro
  • Parsley
  • Rosemary (overwintered)
  • Thyme (overwintered)
  • Blueberries

Here’s the end of the tomato bed:

It also holds the peppers, eggplant, spinach, and lettuce, though they’re hard to spot in this picture. The spinach and lettuce went into the ground a bit late, but lower temperatures and lots of rain seem to be keeping them happy. We’ve had a Noah’s Flood of rain lately, and it’s time to cage these long-legged tomatoes. Cage prices were so high I’d started to build my own when I spotted a sale bin of cages at Aldi for $1.49. Score!

  1. Rabbit hate blood meal, it also serves as a fertilizer, and all you do is sprinkle a little new stuff after each rain…
