Left: Before! Right: After dividing the plot up and planting a few things.
Left: The first plant, red onion. Right: Artichokes
This was the first week I was allowed down at my plot at the Intervale. On Thursday we laid down some boards to divide the plot into nine 3’ x 9’ beds. Today we set up three of the beds.
Bed One: Onions, Carrots, Beats with Chives and Chamomile
Bed Two (is really two beds): Tomato, Eggplant, Pepper, and Artichoke with Basil and Cosmos.
Bed Three: Broccoli, Spinach, and Brussels Sprouts with Marigolds and Parsley
Bed Four (also is two beds): Three sisters - Corn, Pumpkin, and Beans
Bed Five: Squash (Spaghetti, Butternut, Summer, and Zuchini) with Cucumbers and Nasturtiums.
Bed Six (two beds) : Snap Peas and Edamame with Mixed flowers
We were able to get the onions in with some carrot seeds for bed one. I wanted to plant the beats but didn’t realize you needed to soak the seeds overnight - hopefully we’ll do that on Wednesday. We planted five of the artichokes in bed two that I’ve been growing since early March. We put down seeds for five Broccoli plants and spinach in between them. I also planted some Mesclun in the squash bed since we can’t plant them for a while.
