The Low Maintenance Garden
I wasn't able to start many seeds this year for my edible garden, so we bought a few transplants instead. This year's low maintenance garden consists of only 15 plants, about half the number I usually have.
We bought both sweet and hot peppers, including a jalapeno plant because we have to have some hot peppers in the garden. So far the plants and pests have been manageable. There are even a few blushing Super Fantastic tomatoes right now.
my failed crop last year made an appearance. Last year potato beetles decimated the potatoes I had started from seed. I was going to turn this into an onion patch, and these two potato plants surprised me by sprouting this spring. I've left them alone just to see what happens. Wouldn't it be nice to get some potatoes this year?
How is your summer edible garden doing?
