What my garden looks like in my head.
I have big plans for this year. Yes, I will deliver this new person in June, but my garden is still going to rock. I have it down to three different gardening areas in my head, here is the breakdown of the Cottage Garden.
The Cottage Garden
This is the pretty little garden that I had last year. This year it will have zinnia’s along the front beds. I want shorter ones so they don’t look too overwhelming. Then inside - I want to try a patch of green onions, spinach, leaf lettuce, and carrots all mixed in together. I, also want to fill in the strawberry bed with more Ozarks. I hope to fill in some of the flower beds around the house with strawberry’s too.
8 broccoli’s (twice the amount of last year)
Let the chives keep going crazy
Try a small amount of eggplant (its just so pretty)
Less cucumbers (I really don’t like them and how many can I feed to the cow?)
Cantaloupe (CAN’T WAIT)
Fill in the lavender at the entrance
Square of red and white onions (Can they be mixed ever other one for visual interest? I am going to try it)
Sugar snap peas
Basil – for me and to be dried and ready for xmas presents, two plants
Jalapeno’s – one plant is enough this time
Large parsley patch
Small area of head lettuce
More spinach in one square – plant to spell out the kids names
Lily garden square – who know what she will grow???
Any empty space gets filled with cilantro
