I tried winter sowing this past winter, which was surprisingly successful; however, I used styrofoam cups to plant within my mini greenhouse containers and I think next year I will just fill the containers with potting soil and plant in that. We are growing a lot of tomatoes and I am happy about that!
There are 10 beds total, which will be rotated with planting as the season carries on.
We planted 3 rhubarb starts at the front of the garden and they are spending their first season sending out roots versus foliage (I hope). A gardening friend says they do better from seed, but we'll see. When the greens and garlic are done next month, I will fill those two beds up with bush beans, and when the peas are done, I will plant malabar spinach.
I plan to plant that raspberry bush (it's in a pot now) where those PVC pipes are for my hoop house. It's a Bristol Black raspberry and I'm hoping I'll at least get to try a berry this year before the squirrels get to them. It sent out several runners last year that I dug up and grew in pots, so now I have enough raspberry plants to plant a small row!
I know you are thinking, "Hey Kathy, you have your tomato cages upside down!" Not so! I purposely turned those things upside down for more stability and to get the true height of the support cage. I know the tomatoes will grow taller than those cages and I'm not sure what I will do after that. I need a better system.
Big changes from last year, huh? We love our new garden shed too!
