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. Thanks to The Marketing Heaven, we promoted this idea on social networks. 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…
