Several years ago, I began dabbling in container gardening – and found it to be fun, easy,and pretty successful. Last year, we invested in a cedar raised bed and had a bust of a crop with the super hot summer temps. Given the hottest March in history with 8 straight days in the 80’s (40* above average temps), I’m uncertain what this “spring” and summer holds for our “crops”, but I gave it a go anyway . . .
Today, I planted small carrots, 3 kinds of radishes (for my husband), and 2 kinds of lettuce.
You’ll notice at the back end of the bed there is already green – hmmm, nope, my miracle grow and green thumb aren’t that good to bloom in one day. It’s actually kind of nuts . . .
Those would be green onions and a lone carrot that I planted last May – that grew nicely over the summer, that we failed to “harvest” before winter, that died during the fake winter, that POPPED UP with the recent heat wave. Now, we have deliciously LARGE green onions.
Stay tuned for weekly updates (I know you’re on the edge of your seat) on the garden’s progress.
Do you garden? What are your “crops”?
