Terrace Planting Map

Hello Gardeners!

Kim, Justin & I planted some different kinds of squash in the terrace; Feel free to plant Sunflowers, Cucumbers or other climbing fruits in between the squash.

Plant fruiting annuals like tomatoes, tomatillos, eggplant, peppers, or other companion plants in the 3rd and 4th terraces. Feel free to put annual or perennial herbs in between fruiting plants, but try to look up compatability / companion plants to keep pests away and  promote better fruits.  To see a good list of companion plants, visit this site.

Here’s a map of what we have done so far.

The plants are marked with markers and/or sticks. Please don’t uproot them when you plant and be sure to mark your plants so that they are not uprooted by other ambitious gardeners!

Also remember the bulletin board is a community area, too.

Who would be on board to working on the Kid’s Plot? If anybody has an old swingset they’d like to donate to the garden, we’d love to have it there for them and let beans other climbers go to town! Anything that would be fun for the kids to plant, pick, eat and/or play on, would be fantastic.

    Hi, I would be happy to help with the children’s garden!!! I love the idea of have swings or something there, but another possibility is a sunflower house, a little playhouse you can crawl into which is surrounded with sunflowers, and roofed with morning glory!!!! love, Beth

    a friend gave me some asparagus starts . . . could i put them up there? they stick around forever and are super awesome, so I thought it would be great to put them in a place that will still be there even if I have to move on in the future.

      I think that would be great! The top terrace is pretty full, but there’s lots of places on the 2nd terrace. Let’s talk tomorrow about where would be a good place to put them. How big do they get? There’s also the bulletin board plot which is community and there’s nothing in that save one little rhubarb and some flowers. we can make that a perennial plot! What do you think?

      If we can’t meet up, put them wherever you think they’d do best and be sure to mark them so nobody pulls them up. mark it on the map, too, if you can.

      The childrens garden needs to be filled much higher with the available compost. It is in an area where water comes down from the property above. Lots of wheelbarrow loads.

      That sounds wonderful. Last year I had an abundance of morning glory plants and expect that I will need to get rid of a lot this year. I’ll be glad to donate a few to the children’s garden this year.
