Our Spring Garden
I love the Spring garden. One of the nicest things about gardening with the Mittleider method is consistency. Year after year we enjoy an abundance of fresh vegetables from a relatively small space. Last year we harvested more than 1,100 pounds from this garden. I suspect this year we will get even more.
Most of these plants were started in mid-February. You can read about starting seeds indoors here. They were transplanted into the garden the last week of March. Some, the green beans, for example, were started from seed in the garden the last week of March.

This year we planted eggplant, bell pepper, zucchini, yellow squash, green beans, cherry tomatoes, big beef tomatoes, Cucumber, sweet potatoes, and watermelon. We’re looking forward to a bountiful harvest. If you are interested in getting some of our veggies this year, send me an email using the contact tab at the top of this page. I’ll tell you how we’re operating our CSA this year.
