My Raised Bed Garden #1

We planted 5 tomato plants...3 that are heirlooms, two fennel plants, a summer squash, and herbs; savory, three kinds of basil, and two types of thyme.
In the second bed [not shown], I planted french radishes, arugala, romaine lettuce, cukes, and bok choy. I will plant snow peas tomorrow. In another area, I will plant lemon cukes. In my in-laws yard I have planted 4 more tomato plants...and we have one volunteer tomato plant we are hoping for fruit from last year. I will rotate crops all summer..and in the fall. I'll keep you posted on our harvest! I will plant corn and watermelon!
I love to can...so I'll be having some fun all summer!

Wow! That was some fast work on the garden. We haven't done anything in ours, but our weather is different here. Rainy, cold, not safe to plant until after Memorial Day.

Remind me to tell you about volunteer tomatoes in the dog pen. Hehe.

Dave did most of it while I was gone...with plants we bought.

I seeded part of the other raised bed yesterday.

so, tell me about volunteer tomatoes in the dog pen!

BTW Peg...it's supposed to be in the high 80's all next week.

I did "the butt test" and the soil was warm enough.
