Victory Gardening in Portland

It was 80° in Portland while Spring I was on vacation in Mexico! Guess I should have stuck it out a little longer. 🙂 Anyway, the hot weather coaxed my favorite red and cheap mlb jerseys black tulips to bloom and wholesale nba jerseys get promptly scorched. …there’s always JARS next year.

Vegetable Garden Planning
Last year I had one 4×4′ raised wholesale jerseys bed vegetable garden. It was my first attempt at gardening and I thought I if I was successful with one box I could graduate to two or three boxes this summer. Yeah! I’m currently trying to figure out how to fit everything I want to grow into three 4×4′ boxes. I overcrowded things last year and it got pretty messy toward Purchases the end of the season.

The image below is my initial garden sketch for this year. My “must haves” are tomatoes, peppers, basil, cilantro, Nenzingen lettuce and peas. I’m excited to try out cucumber, green onions and basil wholesale jerseys this year.

A few self-imposed guidelines for narrowing down planting choices:

  • Veggies I buy often.
  • Veggies that are expensive.
  • Veggies that have a short fridge-life and/or are best picked fresh.
  • Plants that are easy to grow.
  • Plants with a small footprint.
