So far we have had great success with our strawberries
as well as dill, cilantro, basil and mint. We have had plenty of salad for the last two months.
What we have learned so far:
•Don't overcrowd.. Follow space guidelines
*our cabbage didn't have enough room
•Bib lettuce is easier to grow than iceberg
*less of an issue w/the slugs
•Have a plan for slugs..they are gross and will eat just about any green leaf
•Don't let cilantro grow until it flowers unless you want coriander seeds
•Prune buds off basil
•Use marigolds and lavender to help keep pests away
Our tomato, cucumber and pepper plants are coming along fine. We may put in eggplant today or tomorrow.
