What else should I plant?

Post  scmelik on 4/4/2011, 9:58 am

I am trying to finish up the last bit of planning and gathering of supplies for my garden today and hopefully get things started this weekend. I am trying to decide what else to plant and what varieties of veggies to plant. Right now I have the following:

Beefsteak tomatoes
Jalepenoes
Chyannes
Anehims

I am thinking about making two boxes one for tomatoes and peppers and one for others that way the tomatoes and peppers aren't shading out the other plants. I am just not sure what else to plant. I am thinking beans, peas, red onions, and carrots. Will 8" deep be deep enough for carrots?

What else do you like to eat? This is the season for salad greens, radishes and peas. What about onions, beans, and squashes? I have not tried carrots in my SFG so can't offer any opinion on those.

Peas, lettuce, radish, spinach will all be about gone due to heat, by the time you get your tomatoes and peppers get planted. Those cool weather crops may still produce a bit longer, but that is ok because it will take some time for the tomatoes and peppers to get up big enough to shade or crowd them out.

Beans are another warm weather crop that go in close to the time you plant tomatoes and peppers

As far as your carrots, it really depends on the variety, check the seed packs. Nantes (don't forget Carrot Week around April 15th) may even grow in 6 inches of MM. Others grow from 7 - 14 inches, depends on the variety.

even though I am sure i am late with planting I bought some snow peas, bush beans, regular peas, radishes, spinach, carrots and some red onions. According to the back of the package everything should be planted outside no sooner than the first part of May. I am starting everything inside so hopefully by the time its nice enough outside to transplant they will be strong enough and have a good start.

Plant what you will most enjoy harvesting. Contact your local agro. extention office they will have a list of what verities of plants do best where you live and when to plant them.
