It's time to think about planting summer vegetables.
I have an enclosed potager with raised beds where I usually plant vegetables but with our severe drought and watering restrictions I decided to leave it fallow this year.
As an alternative...
I am going to incorporate a few vegetables into the border below the deck. (I can't resist sowing a few of my favorite zinnia seeds too...aren't zinnias vegetables?)
Here it is last winter with lettuce but it should work well with summer vegetables too.
The massed planting of Stock will be replaced by pole beans, eggplants and summer squash.
My new edging will be bush beans,
Tomatoes, I only bought determinate varieties to save space, plus one cherry tomato, will find homes
among the roses and boxwood.
The best part is this is all right outside my kitchen door, for the first time I will have a real kitchen garden!
Meanwhile I am praying mightily for rain!
