Here is a layout of my garden for 2016. With so much going on I don’t think I’m going to get a chance to till the secondary garden for my tall plants, but if I have time, I might try planting loofas in the back forty.
The tally for this year is as follows:
Beans: Green and Speckled Bush Beans
Blueberry Bushes (3)
Peas: Sugar Snap Peas, and whole peas
Peppers: Serrano, Jalapeno, Sweet Banana, Bell, and Poblano
Squash: Yellow, Zucchini, and Patty Pan, Spaghetti Squash
Tomatoes: Roma, Cherokee Purple, 2 different yellow tomatoes, and Better Boy
Ordinarily I’d grow the corn and sunflowers in the secondary garden. This year I’ll plant a token bed for each in the main garden.
The graphic below is how my raised beds are set up. I have a large asparagus bed to the left of this, and several smaller beds for greens and lettuces situated around the chicken pen.
I’d like to get a couple more blueberry and blackberry bushes. I also need to move my grapes, but I think it’s too late in the year to do that now
How does your garden grow? What are you planting this year? Do you have any reliable favorites to suggest? I’m trying a new green bean this year and some new lettuce varieties. (My lettuce is beautiful, but every year it’s bitter. Still trying to work that out.)
