2013 Garden Plans

We had our first meeting of the year and did the work of doing the overall plan for the Demo Garden this year. Over the next 2 weeks we will have each sub-committee meet to plan the details of what will be planted in each bed. For now, I can share with you the overall plans.

2013 General MapJust the quick rundown:

Bed 1: Half orange/yellow tomatoes and half red tomatoes with the 2 raised areas for unique basils

Bed 2: Currently shallots, etc. We will plant some bush beans and then fall broccoli/cauliflower.

Bed 3: Currently garlic. Fall root veggies, salad greens and parsnips.

Bed 4: Half vertical garden and half eggplant trial. (You better believe there will be recipes coming this year!)

Bed 5: “Snacking” Vegetables/Children’s Garden

Bed 6: Currently half garlic. Pizza Garden

Bed 7: Grape TBD, underplanted with various thymes

Bed 8: Perennial Herbs

Bed 9: Sweet Potatoes

Bed 10: Horseradish and Rhubarb

Containers, Entry, Lattice, etc: Flowers, some herbs

You will notice that the Family of 4 Garden is taking a break this year. I think we have plenty of other fun things to take it’s place!
