Planning your garden can be panic inducing. What do I plant? Do I start from seed or transplant? I like squash but so do squash borers (a lot)!
When planning our gardens we keep the basics in mind like irrigation plans, soil, light, and available space. But what to plant and when?
You might find it helpful to start with some tasty and easy to grow plants.
Here are some plants with minimal requirements other than regular watering starting with okra as early as July.
Artichokes (perennial!), plant transplants in mid-October. We get many compliments on the beauty of the artichokes in the Edible Landscape at The Raincatcher’s Garden. You may harvest the globes or allow them to develop into an eye catching and exotic looking flower.
