GARDENING! It’s nearly Spring, and I can’t wait to get back into the garden! Of course, I have to clean up the doggie nuisances that she buried in the snow (!) and that are thawing out – ew. Then I have to get rid of a rusty chair, tie up my yew bushes, and get some more plants to put in the ground. Plant it green side up. Plant it green side up. Plant it green side up.
So, what shall I plant green side up?
1. Cherry tomatoes
2. Pear tomatoes
3. Roma tomatoes (sensing a theme?)
4. Green bell peppers
5. Some sweet peppers of some other kind, and maybe a hot plant for my husband
6. Green chard
7. Ruby or rainbow chard
10. Genovese basil
11. Marjoram or oregano
12. Opal basil
13. Snap dragons
What? I know I can’t eat them, but they’re my favorite flower next to gladiolus! I live in the city and have no back yard. We installed a five by ten above-ground planter a few years ago and I do French intensive gardening. It works for me. Can’t wait to have some land and a BIG garden! Pumpkins, squash, potatoes, an orchard… But for now, mine your acre of diamonds.
