Gardening 2018

Watch out for mint! That stuff grows like a weed. Our thyme, oregano and assorted other spices always do well. I love cooking dinner by going out and picking some green onions first or some spices (smell awesome). We just pulled in our first harvest of bok choy, lettuce and spinach. We got about 5 shopping bags packed full. Nom nom!

Folks,start looking into medicinal herbs,milk thistle/echinicea/garlic/cinnamon ect.'08.
If you look like food,you will be eaten.


I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Never thought of medical herbs, I'll have to look into that.

Look down in the First Aid section and you'll see several threads on essential oils, herbs, tinctures, salves and all sorts of stuff that really works well.   Smile

Great, thanks. I also look for garden stuff that my bees like. Thyme and lavender are #1 on their list! Blackberries and raspberries are solid also.

I've started small. Until I can get the results I want, I'm going to have to be patient and experiment. 2 pepper plants in the ground in a new location where they only get morning sun. And a peppermint plant in a pot and receives partial afternoon sun. I'll see what happens.

Doing well so far:
Peas
Garlic
Onions
Chives
Shallots
SPINACH! Best year ever!
Peaches
Pears
Apples
Radish
Thyme
Parsley
Oregano
Taters

Too early to tell:
Beans
Cukes

Disappointments:
Carrots
Kale-poor germination, small plants. Typically easier than weeds...
Lettuce-Bunnies, poor germination... What little we have is excellent.
Tomatoes - Last year was bad. This year is off to a bad start.
Peppers- might have started them too early. A few look good but the Pablanos didn't make it. Hoping a few of each of the other varieties pull though.

Wilds
Blackberries look good
Indian Plum are nearly ready. Waxwings will most likely beat me too them.
Salmon Berries - Birds win.
Salal - looks promising
Oregon Grape - Looks promising
Currants - look good
Nettles - AWESOME (tea, boiled greens, fiber later)
Bracken and Sword Ferns - good
Service Berry - promising
Thimbleberry - excellent
Miners lettuce - excellent

My mint is doing outstanding. By far the best thing I've ever planted.

I've merged the old gardening year into this thread.

Now that I know where to grow my garden, I'm now considering what I'll be planting. Peppers and mint did outstanding last year, they'll be returning in the spring.
