In the Seattle area, the last frost date has well passed and the plant sales are in full swing. Around here, Mother's Day weekend marks the official start of the direct-sow growing season.
I consider my potage (kitchen/ edible) garden to be in it's third year.
The first year, I exclusively grew pumpkins.
Last year, I experimented with tomatoes, potatoes, snap peas, squash, garlic, onions and broccoli. Separately, I have a mature herb garden that never ceases to amaze me with its hardiness.
This year, I'm trying even more veggies; ones that are new to my dirt.
Peppers, which I bought from PCC are sourced from "Rent's Due" Farm, located in Stanwood, Washington.
I may have bit off more corn than I can chew, at the Root Connection in Woodinville but I imagine pulling the corn from the stalk and chucking it directly onto the BBQ.
Among other edibles, I also have peas, pumpkins, kale, potatoes and tomatoes, which I grew from seed, strawberries, garlic, artichokes and I have basil in the kitchen window.
I put in some broccoli and cauliflower, which the wild bunnies wasted no time savoring.
If you haven't put anything in the ground, it's not too late! Grab a bag of compost, poke some holes in it and stick something in. Even better, have a kid help you out. They might learn something.
