Garden Beds in Florida

By Monday, February 12, 2018 0 Permalink 0

I have a great little helper and have decided to do a veggie patch addition to our country this year. We found some great corner bricks on home depot for about $2.50 ea, which made this addition very cheap, we did 2 garden beds 8×4 for about $50 bucks!!

The best potting soil (veggie organic soil?) I have bought was this green organic bag at walmart, priced at roughly $8/ea, I think I used about 3 bags mixed with some other dirt I had.

The veggies are doing great!!! Of course now it’s winter so we have no bugs, somebody told me about mint oil to keep away the bugs. So I had some original listerine laying around I made a mix of listerine and water in an spray bottle and have been using that on the few occasions I have found bugs. I think planting the onions and herbs around also helps.

This is the first one I have setup, I got from home depot:

  • Tomatoes > Cherry & Normal
  • Romaine
  • Butter lettuce
  • Mustard
  • Parsley
  • Cilantro
  • Green onions (replanted from store herbs)

From some friends I got:

  • Collard greens
  • Cabbage
  • Some other questionable herbs
  • Sugar cane (which gets big and will not go on

I know it’s early to avail what will last thru or exist in summer – Florida is so tough with its scorching sun!! So we’ll see then…
