My 2013 Square Foot Gardening Plan
Honestly, this year I’m feeling so behind, a day late and a dollar short (Donny and Marie, anyone?), not at the top of my game. But then I take a deep breath and remember that gardening is very forgiving. Forgot to start those seeds? Just buy transplants. Forgot to plant peas early? Plant them later for the fall. Plans can always be adjusted, and there’s always something you can grow right now.
Once I remove all the pressure to do everything all the time, I remember that I love to garden and I start to enjoy it again. So here is my 2013 garden plan:
Some items to note:
- This is the first time in YEARS that I’m planting corn. I couldn’t resist! I am hoping that adding fertilizer (which I did not do last time) will improve my yield.
- One of my readers gave me some heirloom tomatoes. Excited for pink and purple!
- I am trying out a new salad garden plan in my north-west bed. I’ve got lots of succession planting going on–first, radishes, then peppers; replace turnips with green onions, etc. I’ll let you know how it goes.
- I’m really excited about growing squash and pumpkins over my new trellis. I got them in way too late last year, and only had one pumpkin.
