Plant what you like to eat.
- Don't plant what you don't like!
- Don't plant too much. Consider how many zucchinis and cucumbers one plant will produce - tomatoes too. Maybe 2 cherry type, 2-3 large type. Decide what type of beans and peas - bush of climbing. (Climbing veggies need a structure to climb on) Be sure to get cages for tomatoes.
Plant with good companions
Cool season crops (plant in March)
Plant herbs you will use - parsley, chives, thyme, oregano, sage
Plant flowers for cutting - cosmos, zinnias, ammi majus, snapdragon, sweet peas
Use mulch to keep weeds down
Use a drip hose, if possible. If not, water in the am so the leaves can dry before nightfall.
