Spring is in the air which means it’s time to start thinking about our garden! Two seasons ago, we built a 4 x 10 raised bed in our backyard and this year, we’ll be building a second one to accommodate more vegetables and herbs! Here’s what we’re planning on growing this year:

Vegetables

Tomatoes

Bell Peppers

Jalapenos

How I'm planning our garden

Instead of just winging it, this year I’ve been using the Kitchen Garden Planner in order to properly space out the vegetables within our raised beds. It’s a really helpful tool and has an easy drag-and-drop feature. This planner is really nice if you want to do “companion planting” which is a gardening technique that I’ll be trying this season!

Starting seeds indoors

I’ve started a few seeds indoors so that I’ll be able to transplant them in the spring. The ones I’ve started indoors are: tomatoes (Roma, Beefsteak, Early Treat), jalapenos, bell peppers, and zinnias.
