|Late summer 2011|
Now that I have more knowledge of what light conditions my garden has, I have made my list and developing plans for what vegetables and herbs I would like to plant.
I'm keeping in mind: "If you grow a plant for the fruit or the root, it needs full sun. If you grow it for the leaves, stems, or buds, a little shade will be just fine".
Vegetable plant list for 2012: *Photos from OSC Seeds
|*Baby Leaf Blend Lettuce|
- leaf lettuce
- mache (lamb's lettuce)
- swiss chard
- beets (for leaf too)
- cherry tomatoes
|*Cherry Belle Radish|
|*Bright Light Swiss Chard|
Last year I had success with lettuce, spinach, parsley, basil, oregano, thyme, chives and cherry tomatoes. I tried leeks, mini carrots, onions, garlic and although they weren't terrible, I would rather have better. I have spots with about 6 hours of sun - it just isn't enough.
With this years selections, at least I'll be getting enough greens!
