There are 5 things that I planted in this bed today. All along the long side, in the front, near the fence I have planted Little Marvel Peas (I only had about a half a package left). I like these peas because they only grow 15-20 inches so I don't need a large fence for them to grow on. I mainly put those in here just to finish off the package from last year, if they grow , they grow; if they don't, they don't.
In the front of this picture (before the piece of wood) I have Champion radishes. I really can't tell you how good they'll be. I have never had any luck growing any root crops in my other gardens but the raised bed has only been planted in once before and has such lovely soil that maybe it will be good for root crops.
In the middle section of the bed are Parris Island Cos (Romaine) Lettuce. I have never grown it before either. Basically the picture on the package sold me this one. It looked yummy!
Down on the end before the onions is Teton Hybrid Spinach. I have only grown spinach once before in my garden and Phil loved it so much I wished I had planted more. So in a effort to fit more spinach into the gardens, this bed ended up with some.
On the end are the onions that I found in the produce section of one of our grocery stores. They were labeled Sweet Palmetto Onions and were being sold as green onions but they don't look like green onions to me and I wanted to plant them to see how they would do in the garden.
So the whole bed will be covered in plastic until our last frost really does arrive and hopefully I can get something to grow. I'll let you all know in future blog posts how everything grows or doesn't grow, as the case may be.
