What's going in your garden this year? Have you grown it before? How is it doing? (Recommendations for OP varieties that do well in the Gorge?)
This year we are trying hay bale gardening. This is new to us and we are hoping it turns out well. We have land, but the soil has been over planted and under ammended. This is also our solution to raised beds. They say you can double your yield using this method. As for what we are planting, you name it. We are going all out veggie and fruit this year. I also invested in a bunch of cut flower bulbs. Looking forward to some star gazers blessing my garden.
As for what is happening in the garden now.. a few daffodils and day lily greens pushing through, a couple of kolanches, loads of tiny tiny cilantro plants that grew under the snow, and a few peony heads sticking out. Our rhubarb hasn't even popped out yet, however, I feel that it is right around the corner. We are really concentrating on clean up, pruning and getting a new compost area situated. What do you have going on?
