So last weekend we decided it as time to get some veggies and herbs planted. I have always intended to be someone who has useful plants growing in my garden, so we will see how it goes 🙂
We bought some of these amazingly cool stacking pots. I intend to plant strawberries in the majority of the space, but the nursery didn’t have any decent looking plants when we were there.
The amazing thing about planting is how different plants either help or hinder growth of the plants around them. Luckily nothing that we bought disliked anything else that we had, but we wanted to get the most benefit from how we planted. This is the companion planting diagram that we came up with:
|Yes, we are nerds like that. Good couple right?|
Unfortunately for us, it seems to have the windiest week we’ve had in cape Town for a long time. Apparently flimsy little basil seedlings don’t do too well in the wind..
Follow the progress of our little garden and learn from our mistakes as we go 🙂
