Edible Garden Project: The Planting Plan

So we're making some pretty serious headway on our Edible Garden Project. The plan for three raised beds you saw in this post is being translated into reality. We have the two beds built and filled with dirt with a third to be completed this weekend and a bunch of soil filled containers. 

Our next step was to come up with the planting plan - what would we plant? We used Sunset's handy Western Garden Book of Edibles to plan our spacing. We ended up going somewhere in between the spacing recommendations from Sunset and the square foot gardening concept.

Here's the full list of what we're planting;

  • Carrots
  • Golden Beets
  • Radishes
  • Dill
  • Garlic
  • Fennel
  • Leeks
  • Mixed Lettuce
  • Kale
  • Arugula
  • Collards
  • Romanesco Broccoli
  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • Eggplant
  • Sweet Red Pepper
  • Jalapeno
  • Habenero
  • Calendula
  • Artichokes
  • Rhubarb
  • Melons
  • Sugar Pie Pumpkins
  • Borage 
  • Mint
  • Chamomile
  • Thyme
  • Cilantro
  • Parsley
  • Tea
  • Blueberry
  • Basil
  • Nasturtiums
  • Chives
  • Scallions

And what we already have going;

  • Tea
  • Blueberry
  • Lingonberry
  • Pink Lemonade Blueberry
  • Sage
  • Meyer Lemon
