Since we moved into the new house almost a year ago, I have wanted an organic veggie & fruit garden bed. I considered raised beds, and looked at a lot of different options. I fired our original landscaper, and our new guy is fabulous! He’s more expensive, but worth it because our front yard is easily the prettiest one on the street!
Well, that’s because of both of us … I take a vested interest in our landscaping & don’t just rely on the hired help!
So I told Mr. Landscaper my desire for an organic garden & asked him about raised beds … he said he could do much better than that, we could section off a portion of where the lantana was growing, dig down deep, get rid of all the dirt & fill it with organic soil and make a barrier around it- a beautiful border. So I said ok. They did that & I went to a local nursery where I found the certified organic, non-gmo veggies that I wanted to plant & I spent Friday, Saturday & part of Sunday and Monday planting away!
I was a little enthusiastic about how many items I could fit into this section of my garden, so I had to resort to some pots! No worries! I wanted to do that anyway 🙂
Here’s what is planted in my garden:
Tomatoes (4 different varieties)
Serrano Chili Peppers
Black Beauty Squash (zuccini)
Yellow Crook Neck Squash
Pole Beans (aka green beans)
Strawberries (Loran & Tristan variety)
Herbs: Basil, Cilantro, Sage, Parsley, Rue & Rosemary
