I toned it down a little bit this year and planted more of what we eat the most of, Tomatoes, Corn and Green Beans. But I’m going to be planting two kinds of cucumbers this weekend but in planters, not in the garden.
For this season, I decided to go with three varieties of tomatoes: Juliet, Roma and Big Beef. I’ve put them at the end of the garden so they get the most of the evening sun as they can. Behind that is Corn and behind that is three bamboo teepee trellis setups for the green beans.
I did use a trick that I learned from my Grandpa, when planting my tomatoes, I added about an inch of manure and then an inch of soil, and then planted my tomato plants. Makes them big and hearty. 🙂
I’ve added berries to the mix too, although I don’t expect to see them until next year. I’ve got Blueberries, Raspberries and Grapes. I’ve also got a few strawberries planted, which already have a few little strawberries on them.
All in all, this looks like it’s going to be a great season.
