After tilling on Tuesday evening, I started planting some of the vegetables that are more cold tolerant Wednesday and Thursday evenings. If a heavy frost comes a lot of what I planted would probably die so I didn’t plant anything I planted about a dozen different things in short rows to get a start and about forty feet of potatoes. I’m trying to remember everything that I planted, but here is a list of what I can remember:
- Potatoes – Red skin and Yukon Gold
- Lettuce Mix
- Romaine Lettuce
I think I missed a couple but it’s a good start. The only issue is that I forgot until I was a few rows in that I was going to do everything as square foot gardening this year. So I decided to do a test on my garden to see which way works best for me in the garden- traditional row gardening or square foot gardening. I inadvertently started a few other gardening methods to test- one area I put annual rye on as a cover crop (ran out so the whole garden didn’t get covered), another area has leaves from last fall where I am basically doing the Ruth Stout method, while the final area has neither of those. I’m interested to see which area does best, although I may not actually plant each type of veggie in each section to compare, I haven’t decided yet.
