Year of the Horse

To welcome the year of the horse we have decided to eat like one. Our resolution was to grow most of our own food for the year. In a state of flu fueled delirium, my mad scientist built 20 raised bed gardens. Since our lot was once a land fill we decided to import quality organic dirt and adhere to square foot gardening principles.We sprout most seeds inside.

Initially we planted only eight of our 20 beds. Into them we put Broccoli, rainbow chard, garden beans, onions, garlic, tomatoes, frisee, mesclun, spinach, kale, string beans, mellon, basil, cilantro, dill, oregano, mustard greens, purple potatoes, rocket, huckleberry and squash. In external planters we have avocados, an orange tree, blackberry, raspberry and an olive tree. 2014-04-04 18.34.08
