Spring Planning

11-29-2013

Winter has just begun, but I can’t wait for warmer weather again, and it will still be months before I can do anything in the garden. I still wanted to jog down my thoughts regarding it anyways.

Right now, I have 8 raised beds in the back yard. One of them has chives growing in it. And it has been doing pretty well. Nothing needs to be done to that one. Another bed has celery growing in it. The rest of the beds need more soil. Three on the farther end haven’t actually been used yet because a huge tree there blocked a lot of the sunshine. But next year, things will be different, since we cut it down. I need to add 1 more raised bed next spring and buy at least 8 yards of soil before I can plant.

Other things I want to plant in the raised beds:

  • Tomatoes
  • Green bell peppers
  • Green onions
  • Purple beans
  • Okra
  • Garlic
  • Cucumbers
  • Mint
  • Rosemary/lavender
  • Basil
  • Cilantro
  • Eggplants
  • Pumpkins
  • Melons
  • Bittermelons
  • Dill
  • Parsley
  • Grape vines
  • Strawberries
  • Goji Berry

Fruit trees that I want to plant:

  • Apple
  • Pear
  • Peach
  • Cherry
  • Plum
  • Fig
  • Lychee

I’m thinking of having the apple and fig trees in the front yard, and the rest in the back yard.
