Our North Louisiana Garden, March 2012

Here’s a quick peek into our little garden today:


We are eating broccoli, spinach, and asparagus right now, but very, very soon we’ll have a whole produce section!  Here’s what we’re growing.

In the 4 x 4 bed:

  • sugar snaps
  • white potatoes

In the 16 x 4 bed:

  • lettuces
  • onions
  • chard
  • broccoli (from the fall and new)
  • cabbage
  • mint
  • parsley
  • asparagus
  • rosemary

In the north 8 x 4 bed:

  • roma tomatoes (just put these out)
  • banana peppers
  • green bell peppers
  • basil

In the south 8 x 4 bed:

  • onions
  • sugar snaps
  • carrots
  • tomatoes
  • chives

In the 2 x 8 bed

  • spinach
  • strawberries
I think we have all the raised beds we’ll need for a while.  I’m excited about how many veggies we can fit into such a small area. I’m relying on Square Foot Gardening and hoping that we really aren’t crowding our plants too much.  I’ve also done a lot of mixing and matching, mostly based on tips from Carrots Love Tomatoes .
