My garden plans have progressed a little since last week. I’ve picked a good place for a garden with an abundance of sunshine, and I started to clear it from unwanted vegetation.
The fence was covered by a thick layer of ivy. To utilize the space, and the sunshine, I had to take it all down. There’s still some more leveling that needs to be done before I can put in garden beds. This year they will be of a more permanent kind, made of wood. The garden beds for my annual vegetables are going to be on the left side, then a green house, and a tool shed to the right (grey rectangle.) The whole area is going to be fenced in. The little tree between the greenhouse and the garden beds is a young nectarine tree that someone already planted there. Of course I’m keeping the nectarine tree.
My container garden is going to be along another fence line, slightly in front of the toolshed. (Container Garden: 6 Olive Trees, 4 Fig Trees, 1 Nectarine Tree, 1 White Peach Tree, 4 Elberta Peach Trees, 1 Pomegranate Tree, 1 Sweet Cherry Tree, 1 Wild Plum Tree, a bunch of 1-2 year old apple and pear trees of unknown variety.)
Within two weeks I’m going to start seedlings inside, and in the beginning of April I’m hoping to have the garden beds in place, and everything in the ground. The green house, and the toolshed will be a project for later this summer. I have an idea of what I want to grow in my garden beds (heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, corn, pumpkins, watermelons, zucchini, Sweet Bell Peppers, Jalapeno hot peppers, baby spinache, strawberries, blueberries, basil, cilantro, oregano, rosemary,) but I haven’t figured out exactly how I’m going to organize the crops. The whole garden area has sunshine all day long. (I live in USDA plant hardiness zone 9.)
Are you in the middle of planning a garden of your own? What are you growing in your garden? How do you go around planning what to grow where? I’d love to hear about it!
I hope you’re having an awesome weekend!
