One of the benefits of living in San Diego is one can garden year round. My garden is my sanctuary so forgive me if my gardening blog spills over into my San Diego blog but I'm so excited - it's planting time!!
My dear sweet patient husband and I built this double raised bed this weekend. We have a large back yard and It killed me to keep the grass green while San Diego is experiencing drought conditions. I'd rather water something we can eat so we dug up a portion of the grass for this 2nd raised bed. I can't wait to fill it with veggies. We have another raised bed where we have onions, spinach, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant growing. It provided all of our salad greens through out the winter.
Try a garden of your own - it's so rewarding!
For San Diego Gardeners:
Per Sunset Magazine, Coastal gardeners (in Sunset climate zones 21-24) can continue to plant quick-maturing, cool-season crops, including chard, leaf lettuces, radishes, and spinach. Inland (zones 18-21), switch to warm-season crops such as beans, corn, cucumber, eggplant, melons, peppers, summer and winter squash, and tomatoes. In the high desert (zone 11), wait a few more weeks; frost is still a possibility.
Plant beans, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, lima beans, melons, peppers, squash, tomatoes, and other warm-season crops. Delay planting two to four weeks in the high desert (Sunset climate zone 11) where frost is still a possibility. Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company is a great seed source for less common varieties.
