Summer is just around the corner and I have started planting...yes you heard that right. Now it's nothing big, just a few herbs, beans and some radish (for hubby, I don't eat radish).
I have a few more things to plant, but there is a crap-ton of work yet to be done to prepare a place - maybe a raised bed or some large containers. I don't know what yet, but the weather is right for growing now that the temps are warm and the monsoons seem to have subsided, at least for the time being.
The herbs: (pictures strangely deleted)
To date, the thyme and oregano have sprouted, and the basil got overturned, probably by a squirrel or other critter. I had to replant it.
I also have a large container that is probably 7 feet by 2.5 feet and maybe a foot deep that was originally used to house bait. My mom got it years ago when the man who sold bait closed up shop. It has been used for plants ever since, and I have it now.
I grew beans in it last year and they did pretty good considering I failed to notice that I had bought climbing bean seeds. The stakes I put up were not sufficient and some ended up in the neighboring azalea. Nevertheless, we got several batches and they bloomed right through October.
We shall see what happens this year. I planted all bush beans! All gardeners are welcome to chime in with stories and/or advice.

Good luck Linda and enjoy the fruits of your labour. I love radish ... but any fresh fruit or veg is the best, with fresh herbs to add a little extra zing on occasion - cheers HilaryReplyDelete
Thanks Hilary! The picture on the radish package showed different colors and shapes. Who knows what we'll get.Delete
