Here’s some tips I’ve learned over the years that I would like to offer to someone starting a garden from scratch. The biggest tip is to start small.
If I started a garden from scratch this is what I would do.
Build some raised beds in a sunny spot outside my kitchen.
And build a compost bin as well.
The seeds I would plant in the early spring would include:
- Black Seeded Simpson lettuce
- Lots of spinach to freeze
- Maybe some arugula or spring mix
- Possibly some radishes
- Sugar snap peas**
Also, I would plant lots of herbs:
- chives (mostly for looks and to feed the bees)
Flowers I would plant include:
- Butterfly flower
Pots and containers
