Raised Beds

Gardening Harry

Because I watched a few too many documentaries, I am extremely pumped. Pumped for the raised bed in my side yard that is just waiting for the weekend to be planted all over. You heard me, I am turning my black thumb green and planting tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, lettuce, blueberries, herbs, and who knows what else. And since Jonathan is going to be doing a lot of the work… my thumb hopefully won’t kill it all.

Now, whose got some mad veggie growing game to spit?

xoxo, Mallory

side note :: how is it possible that sweet little babiator wearing guy is 12 weeks old today?!

    Just through my experience I have learned…… Rosemary can be picked year round and it smells sooo good, it grows like an evergeen tree. Oregano comes back, Cilantro should always be planted by itself away from everything else, it doesn’t play well with others. Basil will just keep growing up so get the big leaves quick. Chives are easy to grow indoors and out and add just that right flavor sometimes. So those are my faves and you can even freeze them. Chop them up like you are going to cook with them and then freeze them either mixed or by themselves in ice cube trays. When they are frozen, they can be put in plastic bags to pull out anytime you need them. 🙂 Have fun!!!

    Oh, and I wouldn’t suggest freezing any kind of tomatoes or peppers. You may have to learn to can and then teach your mother. Love you

    I’ve also decided to start a vegetable/fruit garden this year and am nervous to say the least. Since my ‘attempt’ last year was digging a hole, dumping seeds into it and forgetting to water it until 4 months later, I’m hoping my thumb has turned a little more green as well! Good luck! 🙂

    Oh fun Mallory! We did our first raised bed garden last year and it was fantastic! It’s about 5 x 10 feet and we crammed in everything… cukes, rhubarb, zucchini, squash, heirloom and cherry toms, lettuce, onions, jalapeños, oregano, parsley, lavender and more that I can’t remember! I think they key to our success was the sunny spot we put it, we’re lucky, we get full sun in our yard all day. Of course, we had to be good at watering it every day unless it rained! Gardening is so much fun! Good luck!!
