Eeeeee-the greenhouse is full!
(Read: My jungle of a house is now empty!)
The cucumbers and tomatoes are growing where they should be...
and NOT falling onto my carpets anymore.
In Canada, this upcoming weekend marks our first LONG weekend of the summer! (And hopefully bidding farewell to snow till AT LEAST October!) We lovingly refer to this weekend as, May Two-Four; while it's nickname suggest we'll spend the weekend drinking lots of beer, the original purpose of the holiday is to celebrate Queen Victoria's Birthday! (I know, kinda silly these days, but we are part of the Commonwealth...)
Guess you know where you'll find me?
Yep. With the greenhouse all a-go, the vegetable garden is now ready for its quality time. (I certainly can be laden with beer during this task, tee hee!)
Which brings me to my next question... any tips for me as to what should go where?? You know, like don't plant garlic too close to the bean or peas family as they'll lessen the yield?
Here is what i intend to plant:
Onions (2 types)
Mesclun lettuce mix
*Peppers, Tomatoes, Mini-Cukes, Eggplant, Brussel Sprouts are greenhouse items*
Any and all suggestions welcome!
ps~in the last week, the combo of sunshine and rain has left Alberta VERY green! The trees are budding and my allergies are over-the-top! Lovin' the greenery, missing breathing easily.
Just found out that i should do marigold's perimetering the garden--helps ward off pests and attracts good buggies!
Good together (any combo of each):
-tomatoes and asparagus
-potatoes and beans
-beans in the shade of lettuce
-beans with broccoli, carrots and cucumber
-carrots with beans and tomatoes
-cucumber with beans, peas, and cabbage
-onions with carrots, lettuce and peppers
-peas with beans, carrots, and cucumber
-potatoes with beans and peas
-tomatoes with carrots, cucumber, onion and pepper
-tomatoes with marigolds
-rosemary with beans
-oregano with anything
DO NOT GROW NEAR EACH OTHER:
-beans with garlic or onion
-onions with beans or peas
-peas with garlic or onion
-potatoes with tomatoes
-tomatoes with potatoes
btw-i've called it May-Long too! May Two-Four just has a nice ring to it, lol! Or, er..a more fun one!
