patio garden.

This weekend we went to the Annual Edible Plant Sale put on by Seattle Tilth. I swear, every hippy in Seattle was there – sleuthing through the pouring rain to find their plants. They had tons of edibles in many interesting varieties. I will definitely be going back next year!

This year, our patio garden will include:

  • 2 varieties of onions
  • 2 varieties of basil
  • 5 tomato plants
  • 2 cilantro plants
  • 5 different kinds of lettuce
  • 2 chive plants
  • 1 jalapeño plant
  • Many sugar pea plants
  • Spearmint
  • An herb that smells like lemon – I can’t remember the name
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme

The weather this weekend inspired me to purchase and plant my summer produce. Last year, I grew tomatoes and basil. This year, I decided to step it up a notch. I’ll be growing:

  • Tomatoes (5 varieties)
  • Basil
  • Cilantro
  • Chives
  • Bush cucumbers
  • Red Bell Peppers
  • Anaheim chili
  • Walla Walla Sweet Onions
  • Strawberries (2 varieties)

For those of you who have seen my patio, you are probably thinking that I went overboard. I think you may be right!
