Spring garden plan

March 12, 2009 | By | Comments (1)

Margo spoke with me a few weeks ago about some (relatively) quick growers that she wanted sown for a spring feast. Her vision was to have them planted in a cohesive little garden, much like the winter crops.

I thought I’d share my garden plan, incomplete as it may be. Some seeds have already been sown, others are in the mail, and I’m still trying to track down a few.

Each section is 2’3″ x 24″. The whole garden is planted in a bed that’s 4’6″ x 10′. There will be a few more crops (shelling peas, chick peas, strawberries, and mint) scattered in other parts of the test garden.


Here’s how it looks so far:


Not very impressive, but it’ll be neat to post pictures as it all comes together.

Lastly, I never tire of taking pictures of baby seedlings:


Beets (just breaking out of their seeds!)

    Oh, how I envy you. Especially your patch of chervil. I’ve been experimenting with French herbs this week (I’m a culinary school student) and have fallen in love with chervil. The fragrance alone is amazing.
