Join us in creating a more sustainable Phoenix!
I finally finished building the planters. Today, I was able to plant everything in except for the tomato plant. I am still deciding whether to plant the tomato seedlings from the orange/yellow tomato that has seeds sprouted inside or the tomato seeds that I have collected from farmers market bought cherry tomato.
Here's the wicking columns packed down with planting mix.
I dug out my asparagus plants and transplanted them here. This particular one has developed serious root system after I bought them as seedlings in July.
Planting the everbearing strawberries now.
Both planters planted, the one in the back also has the lemon basil and common sage seeds planted. I am saving the space on the right of the front planter for tomato when I have a seeding ready and when it gets warmer.
Straw mulch covering the soil to keep the strawberry plant clean.
