I’m planting a Recession Garden, nothing fancy, but way more involved than my deck herb garden. In the spirit of diy & indie I thought I would share my results with you for those who are interested. Don’t worry, this won’t turn into a gardening blog. If you read this blog regularly, you know that it’s rather like a stream of consciousness…whatever I am into, you are gonna hear about!
Anyway, I planted my first seeds over the weekend. I decided to start from seed, because I want to use heirloom plants and organic ones as well. I also decided to sprout inside as opposed to sowing right in the ground. I’ve never had much luck planting seeds outside and getting them to grow. So, after 2 days some of my seeds are already sprouting! The cucumber seeds to be exact.
Here’s what I planted:
Pruden’s Purple Tomato, Yellow Brandywine Tomato, Yellow Squash, Cucumbers (the little ones), Dill, Cilantro, Basil, Parsley.
I’m also planting:
Oregano, Rosemary, Peppers, lettuce and maybe some beans of some kind.
