Veggie Garden Plan 2014


So here we are, March 9th. Still buried under 4 feet of snow but the sun is shining, the clocks have sprung forward and my optimism abounds. I figured the best way to channel this energy is to put it on paper!

This year I am keeping it simple (sort of) with mostly low maintenance, bug free type plants. I have found that tomatoes are a hassle to trim and cucumbers, although tasty, attract cucumber beetles (funny that…). I’m sticking with squashes, root veggies, and the ever popluar peppers, peas and lettuce. New roots will be beets and shallots, and thanks to a friend’s seed exchange butternut squash will makes its first appearance. I fell in love with spaghetti squash last year so I’ll try that too, we will see how that goes!

In the side garden, the annual asparagus will be ready to harvest in its third year. I may add a few more seeds depending how much room the rhubarb takes up. I removed the ugly black compost bin (in favour of a pile behind it) and that’s where our pumpkins will go, along with a trial season of red cabbage. I didn’t have a lot of luck with the brussels sprouts in 2012 but there was also a heck of a learning curve that year too.

Now let’s get that snow melting!!
