Yup. I picked out my plants on Friday and put them into my brand new raised garden beds on Saturday. If everything thrives, I will have some funky heirloom variety tomatoes and some standard hybrids. Yum! I also plant Japanese eggplant for the first time, and a few carrots. also for the first time. Add a few viney plants (melon, cukes, spaghetti squash) and a few peppers, and that's my garden.
Awhile ago I planted spinach and lettuce, and some of the lettuce looks like it is ready to be harvested this week -- wahoo!
The only down side to all of this is that I flooded my laundry room when I turned on the faucet outside to water the new plants. No carpet got wet, but it means I can't start up the swamp cooler or run the hose to the garden until the leak is repaired. I suspect something froze this winter. Sigh. Happily, it rained today so I won't need to figure out how to get water to the garden for a few days.
Keeping my fingers crossed that we are done with hard freezes this Spring!
