Earth Day 2012-Good Better Best Organic Garden Planning

Today being Earth Day, and a rainy one at that, I am thinking a lot about the Good Better Best Organic Garden 2012.  I had great success in 2011 for the first time ever in our garden so there are some things I am going to repeat and some new things to try.


-The number one thing I am going to use again is the Coast of Maine Lobster Compost.  This product totally changed my garden for the Best.  I used it for the first time last summer right when I put my vegetable plants in and I have never had a garden like I did last year. %20l

-I think I am going to grow tomatoes, yellow squash, peppers and cucumbers again.


-Running Daddy is talking about creating raised bed this year to improve the growing conditions in the Good Better Best Organic garden.

-I am thinking about moving the rosemary plant as it is really starting to take over the garden.  I am amazed at how well this little bush has done, but  think I need to find another spot for it.  It needs to be trimmed back and I have also told all the neighbors that when they want rosemary they can open the gate and cut away at any time!

-I think I will also add zucchini to the garden this year.  Running Daddy really like yellow squash but the Sweet Boy prefers zucchini...let's do both.

-While listening to Morning Living, as I do every morning, on the Martha Stewart Channel on Sirius, Betsy this host mentioned that you could grow both peas and beans in pots.  First I am not a fan of peas but I tried to grow beans about three years ago in the regular garden and it did not really work out.  I just did not have enough room.  I think I am going to try beans in larger pots this year and see what happens.  As you know the Sweet Boy and I now have a motto about gardening...put it in the ground and see what happens!

-I am going to skip the watermelon.  I just did it for the Sweet Boy and I don't think we have the right type of soil.

Looking forward to hearing what you are going to grow in your garden!

Enjoy the Best Food!
