finally… it’s time to garden!

We’re doing raised beds for the first time ever. The raised bed to the left has onions, carrots, spinach and lettuce.

I’m planting all of my herbs and flowers in the garden bed next to the house (not raised). So far, we have 2 kinds of basil, lemon grass, oregano, chives, catnip, two kinds of parsley, lemon balm, sunflowers, 2 kinds of sage, mint, lavender, rosemary, thyme and strawberries.

We still have two raised beds to fill with soil. So we’ll be planting a lot more. I know I still want to plant cucumbers, radishes, turnips, beans and, of course, tomatoes! I also want to plant feverfew, which is a great headache preventative.

I’m so excited for this years harvest. Not only am I experimenting with the raised beds, I am using companion planting this year. I know I’m getting ahead of myself, but I can’t wait to see what the first harvest looks like!
