This is my first foray into serious vegetable gardening in decades. I have been planting a few tomatoes and some herbs in a couple of large containers by my house for years, but the shade has increased to the point where that is not working any longer. A client of mine with a large group of raised gardening beds was not going to plant this year, so I was allowed to plant as I pleased.
Red and Yellow potatoes are the best when freshly dug by hand and roasted. Sugar Snap peas hand picked with your granddaughters and steamed are beyond yummy. I was amazed that every single Beet seed grew as did all the Basil seeds and Red Onion Sets. It is amazing how many cucumbers are created by just 2 plants. We are hunting through the leaves and picking them regularly, doing our best to pickle them and share. The tomatoes have not even ripened, so the real work has yet to begin. My goodness we have our work cut out for us, but the results are delicious, healthy, and easy on the wallet.
Are you doing any edible gardening this season? Either in containers, dedicated garden beds or even mixed into the landscape. If you are, what is doing well and what if any challenges are you having?
