Garden Plan for the Coming Season

While the temperatures outside are still near the freezing mark I can’t help but plan for warm weather and gardening.  I’m hoping to start seeds inside and in the garden box sometime this month.

Crazy?

Maybe a little.

This is the first year I have a covered garden box outside, but last year I started my seeds inside right around this time.  I use a Grow Light constructed by my sweet husband, but more on that in a later post.

For the past several years I have added more plants to the garden. I think this is a great way to operate. Start small and slowly add more and more.  The husband thought last year was a ton and in the beginning he didn’t think we’d be able to keep up, but we had no problems. So, I’m adding more!

Someday I’ll stop adding more plants and one day far down the road, when we don’t have as many helpers to feed, we will downsize.

Here’s the plan for this year:

New Bushes/Trees
Rhubarb
Blackberry Bushes
Apple Trees (x4)
Established Bushes / Trees
Strawberries
Raspberries
Raspberry
Herbs
Parsley (1 established, adding 2 more)
Cilantro
Basil
Cumin (experimental!)
Thyme (established)
Chives (1 established, adding more)
Rosemary
Oregano (established)
Mint
Lavender (1 established, adding more)
Chamomile
Vegetables
Potatoes (red & russet)
Corn
Carrots
Pumpkins
 Tomatoes (Roma & heirloom)
Peppers (Bell, jalapeno)
Onions
Garlic
Beans (pole & bush)
Radishes
Peas
Arugula
Spinach
Lettuce (Black Seed Simpson, Mesclun mix)
Flowers (from seed)
Sunflower
Zinnia
Petunia
Marigolds
Cosmos
What new plants are you planning to grow this year?

  2. I started our seeds on Saturday as our last frost is in March. I’m growing parsley, cilantro, basil, tomatoes, watermelon, bell peppers, and peas. We haven’t been gardening for too many years and are still trying to figure out how to garden in the extreme heat of Texas it has been fun. This year we are also going to try shading our garden from the wind and sun to see if that helps.
