The future vegetable  patch in mid-June

The future vegetable patch in mid-June

Now that the unpacking of the house is (mostly) done, it is time to get this Summer’s vegetables underway. The enormous empty bed on the Eastern part of the backyard is earmarked for vegetable production. Most of this area is in full sun from mid morning until early evening, so it is perfect for all of the sun-loving Solanacea, as well as leafy greens, seasonal leafy herbs (parsley, coriander etc), legumes, melons and all of the gourd family. Of course the perennial Mediterranean herbs rosemary, sage, thyme, oregano etc will all see this as paradise too. So let’s get to work shall we?
