Be sure to plant a vegetable garden this year

Cold Frame 5-30-20

It’s not too late to plant a great garden and enjoy wonderful organic vegetables throughout the summer and into fall.

In May, I usually go to Madrid and visit my daughter and her family. However, this year, due to covid-19, I’m not traveling.

Deane Rimerman, the forester who helps me with my pruning, offered to build me a cold frame, a cover for my raised-bed garden, so the seeds would sprout sooner and the seedlings would grow faster. See the photo above.

I’m already eating salads from my garden. It’s fabulous because I haven’t been ordering lettuce and greens from my local co-op due to concerns about possible contamination.

Early June isn’t too late to plant a garden. It’s when I usually do it when I get back from Spain. This photo is from 2018. As you can see, I had a very healthy, productive garden.

Even if you don’t have a space for a garden, you can grow a lot of vegetables in pots on your patio.

To get some ideas on what to plant in a garden, see my report from 2017 “My Garden Is in Full Production.”

Nice ... if only my garden ever looked that good. I used to grow veggies like tomatoes, lettuce, radishes and a few other things. But now I have a brother-in-law who has a greener thumb, a bigger plot, and fortunately a generous heart.
