I've been mulling over the placement of vegetables in the raised beds for the coming growing season.
Here's my grand plan. I expect a few things to be adjusted, and I'll still probably have something grow wild and smother something next to it again.
I have placed some beans and some peas in each bed.
It was so warm this afternoon that I spent some time sitting the cages up in the space as I've planned to get a sense of how well everything will fit. I'm pretty happy with the layout so far. The few bits of green you see in this photo to the right of the cold frame is the garlic which I planted last fall.
I also have a berm on the other side of the side walk we're I'm planning to put the melons. The strawberries almost completely died last summer in the heat. I haven't decided yet whether to buy more strawberry plants or try to baby the daughter plants and hopefully rebuild my crop from what I have over the next few years.
I'm anxious to plant lettuce, peas, kohlrabi and radishes this week.
