Decided to try a bit of gardening this year – and my son Davis and I built 3 raised garden beds, each 3′ x 5′, from cedar 2×6’s. We also got some large planter pots, 3 of them, that are about 2′ in diameter, and a couple feet tall.
This past weekend we picked up the soil, and Davis and I filled up the garden beds. Then Tracey and I decided on vegetables. Here’s what we’ve planted, mostly from seed:
- Zucchini (green and gold varieties)
- Butter lettuce
- Kale (planted some seed, and also 2 plants from the garden center)
- Carrots (a multi-color variety)
- Green onions
- Jalapeño pepper
- Red Chili pepper
- Sweet Bell pepper
- Tomatoes (in one of the planter pots)
While at the garden center, we also picked up some flowers and herbs that we’ve planted in large planter pots. The herbs are in a big pot by the pizza oven which should be handy 🙂
Now we just have to remember to water and weed everything!
