Oregano (cutting from my mum)
Echinacea (to buy seedling)
Lavender (to buy seedling)
Rosemary (from last year)
Dill (saved seeds!)
Basil (to buy seedling)
Rhubarb (to transplant from my grandma's house in April)
Raspberry (to transplant from my mum's house in April)
Wild Ginger (to buy plugs from Richter's Herbs in April)
Tomato (chitting potatoes as we speak)
Caynne Pepper (to buy seedling)
Onion (upstairs roommate has sets)
Chives (cutting from my mum)
Beans and Peas:
so many kinds!!!
Baby Brassica Salad Mix
Annual Flowers (to attract the polinators!)
And my major experiments:
Amaranth (for the grain)
Callaloo (for the greens)
The reason I started with this was to ensure "crop rotation" for the future. Basically this just means, don't plant one family in the same place you planted it last year. Each family sucks up specific nutrients from the soil so, in order not to have to use pesticides, Organic farmers use crop rotation to keep their soil happy and healthy.
I also did this to make it easier to plan my plot. I'm going to be experimenting with companion planting this year but keeping families together allows for ease of watering (ie-lettuces like to be sprayed on, roots and fruits like a deep water with no water on the leaves)
This year will be a grand experiment in having a massive kitchen garden. I'm more interested in variety then monocropping my whole plot and my friends keep dumping seeds on me, which seems to be supporting that plan! Step 2 soon!
