From April 7th…
- . . .
This shot shows most of my garden, except for one of my potato beds.
This bed has lettuce and salad greens in one end of the bed, and wildflowers in the other bed. (Including a couple of bluebonnet plants that are now growing!) — BTW, the street sign from NW 27th & Blackwelder is not stolen but was given to me by my old next door neighbors, the Puckets (now deceased) who had a God-given gift to grow things. They used to work for OKC Parks department which is where they got the sign.
This shot shows my new potato bed (the bed that is closest to where I took the picture from on the left. My method for that bed was to dig it out about 9″ deep (and to use the dirt elsewhere in one of the elevated beds), then to plant my seed potatoes in the pit. Then I piled on hay. The idea is that as the potato plans grow, I’ll add keep adding hay and at the end of the season all I’ll have to do is shake off the hay to find the taters!
BTW, if you want to track what I’m planting where check out my garden map…
