Spring is here in Seattle (well, sort of) and I thought I should start gardening again. I’ve had lots of success in the past couple of years with my patio garden – growing everything from lettuce to jalapenos.
Last year’s garden consisted of the following:
Lettuce (this year I need to space out when I plant them)
Strawberries (only a couple though)
Basil (it failed miserably)
Endives (not being the variety I liked)
Carrots (they were real “baby” carrots as I dumped a whole pack of seeds into a small pot)
I know there were a few more things but I can’t remember what they were – my patio looked like a mini jungle.
Oh, and you can’t forget the grass I’ve been growing and maintaining for my dog! It’s a 2x3 foot patch, grown on oil pans (I know, I should’ve started a business).
I’ve moved to a bigger place this year, which means a BIGGER patio. There’s so much space to grow plants I’m actually not quite sure what else I should grow!
Garden this will start out with the following:
Red leaf lettuce
Walla Walla onions
Better Boy tomatoes
Blackberry bush (or is it tree?)
Pumpkin (not even sure if I can do this in a pot, we’ll see)
So all of that doesn’t even cover ½ the space I have! Please give me suggestions on what I can plant & a few tips to go along with it.
All of the gardening I’ve done has been all by trial and error – I don’t really have time to read books or watch videos. If it can go in the ground and grow, I’m going to try it!
Stir things up!
