I have a bed for strawberries and so far they are really blossoming this Spring. Someone told me that in Florida they grow onions with strawberries, but this guide I found doesn’t say that, although it doesn’t say not to plant them with strawberries either.
I see it says not to plant near the cabbage plant, but bush beans are good, so I will probably plant beans in the bed closest to the strawberries.
Went out and took some pictures – so fresh and nice after rain and will be warming up soon.
another interesting thing – wicking beds http://www.urbanfoodgarden.org/main/wicking-beds/wicking-beds.htm – the same as self-watering containers I think.
I’ve been reading about keyhole gardens where you put a compost thing in the middle for your kitchen scraps, etc. and then water it through that and so here I have put the circular wire and I am adding the kitchen scraps. I will cover the compost leaves with peat moss, vermiculite and more composted compost, as in the new square foot gardening book.
I don’t know what these lovely flowers are, but I’m glad they are growing so nicely. I planted some wildflower seeds here and so I will eventually find out what they are.
Potato plants popping up nicely through the straw.
Meadow Sage is a winner!
Love the tulips !
