I’m going to be companion planting, in particular to help with pests and pollination as well. Between my tomatoes are going to be marigolds, between my peppers/jalapenos will be a mix of basil and lettuce or spinach, more marigolds by my cucumbers, and the rest of that bed are onions and garlic (I’m growing a bunch). I’m going to be growing fennel in their own planters since they dont do well with others, and I currently have lettuce and other herbs in containers. I’ve got pumpkins, watermelons, and blueberry bushes in other beds - I plan to do broccoli later in the season when temps cool off. Still learning (and growing!) when it comes to gardening!

Ok the birds had their chance. I harvested the last of the flaxseeds today. I left them for the birds but I think the birds are busy eating something else because they were leaving them alone. I also wanted the space to put a few other new plants.

Each of those seed pods contains about 6 to 8 seeds and there’s a ton of them. I read it’s best to roast them a little before eating them so I think I’ll save some seeds for next year and I’ll try eating the rest myself.

So I did step in some angry red ants and my palms are incredibly blistered from trying to use the hoe instead of waiting for my fiancé to till up the area, but I’ve got 8 new potato plants in the ground near the tomatoes :)

A piece of blue salvia broke off when I was transplanting earlier in the Spring so I put it in a pot to see if I could get it to root. It did and we just transplanted it into its new home:

05/27/20: I’ve planted some squash plants for this summer. What kind? ….I don’t know 😅 I planted two kinds of seeds and walked away.

There are two plants in this bed but the one on the left is out performing the one on the right. I planted them on the same day but what a difference!

They both started to put some flowers. I can’t wait to see what I end up with!
