Planning for the spring garden
We’ve been so happy this year eating all the great food we preserved from last year. I still have green beans in the freezer (as well as cabbage and tomatillos). And now is the time to start planning our spring garden. I can’t wait. Although part of me is at a bit of a loss as to what I want this year. I love trying new things, but they don’t always work. So I have some questions for you:
- Mid Atlantic people: how do you keep the cucumber beetles out of your organic garden? We’ve had zero success with cucumbers the last three years. But I REALLY want them to flourish this year!
- What is the most interesting thing you’ve planted and would you do it again? We planted celeriac (celery root) last year. It came in, but small. We’re doing it again, and this time Rick has read up on what you have to do to make it flourish (none of which are things we did last year).
- What is your favorite organic fertilizer?
- What is your favorite organic bug obliterator? Yes, I want them not just dead, but extinguished!
I probably have more questions, but I can’t think of any now. In fact, now I need to go over to the garden and see how the greens in our hoop house are doing after some really cold days. I hope the tender little greens are okay. I’m sure they’re not dead, but they’re probably a little wilted.
What are your spring garden plans?
