Today right on schedule the garden is now officially planted. Along the left edge and the back are onion starts. Just in from the edge on the left are five northern red potato plants. All up and doing well. In the back just in from to potato plants is a single globe basil plant. To the right in two short rows are four peppers, two green and two yellow. Next is a tomato and down the right side are the rest of the tomatoes. This year I'm trying out two each of Beefsteak, Roma and Brandywine. In the middle area are cucumbers, a group of small pickling variety and the regular long type. Moving closer to the front are two rows of pole beans then a row of Italian bush beans. Along the far right edge is a row of the French Breakfast Radishes. Closer to the front are two rows of Swiss Chard. Between the chard and the potatoes is a group of zucchini. Then finally along the front is a row of carrots. Now that it is all named it seems like a real muddled mix. Time will tell if it all works. The anticipation is always part of the process.
Next week on Saturday we plant the large fields that will supply food for families in our community.
