We’ve been loving all this spring rain and what it’s done for everything we’ve planted. If you haven’t yet planted anything in your garden now is the time, summer crops are going in this week. A few suggestions:
- Start an herb garden in pots near the kitchen. Grow basil, rosemary, oregano, mint, and sage for quick and versatile flavors.
- Pick your favorite vegetable and try growing it this year or add a new plant to your repertoire. Consider watermelon, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, and potatoes.
- Plant a pizza garden with the ingredients you can enjoy on summer pizzas: tomatoes, basil, peppers, onions, and oregano.
- Plant a BBQ garden with the fixings for great grilled veggies. Consider sweet and hot peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, yellow squash, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and eggplant.
