Well… even though we’re still a few weeks out from frost-free date in Illinois (May 10-15 is frost-free), we began out cold weather crops this weekend.
So, I guess it’s time to tell you about our plan for the garden. I know you have been losing sleep. We went from two garden beds (4×5 feet each) in 2009 to 3 beds plus more space for 2010.
And, here’s the plan for these three beds. If you recall, I use the “Square Foot Gardening” method, so each plant will have a square foot. I’m doing one entire bed with a variety of tomatoes, because I’d like to preserve them this year.
So, that’s the garden, in photos. So far, we’ve only planted radishes, potatoes and onions outside. We also put a variety of lettuce and mustard greens in the planters on the deck.
Here’s Ryan planting all the onions. There’s like a thousand (not really – but, there will be a lot). Hopefully the neighbors like onions. Ryan chose to plant them in rows instead of in square feet.
