Vegetable and Herb Garden 2010

I tried to start a vegetable garden last year and I had all my seeds started…until I got leukemia. When that happened, the whole project halted. I had tilled the garden, fertilized with horse manure, and all that. But being in a coma for a month dampens the ability to work on such a project.

I’m trying again this year…with some improvements. Last year, I just put my seeds in an eastern window. That was grossly insufficient. They came up spindly and weak. This year, I built a growing rack to hang grow lights on. It’s allowing me to start more seeds, as well as give them a better start.

I’m starting quite a lot. I’ve got two varieties of tomatoes, three peppers, eggplant, carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, beans, carrots, watermelon, spinach, and a mesclun salad mix. In the big tray I’ve got two varieties of sunflower, parsley, sage, basil, oregano, chives, cilantro, peppermint, thyme, and rosemary. In some other pots/starters in the picture below I’ve got saguaro cactus, barrel cactus, an assortment of carnivorous plants, and some aloe vera.

I still need to order a few plants. I definitely need tomatillos, some melons, stevia, some green tomatoes, pumpkins, leeks, and strawberries. I’m ordering those today. They should be in by the end of the week. I know it sounds like a lot. Keep in mind that my herb garden plot is separate from my vegetable plot. And I have .8 acre, so I can afford a large vegetable garden.
