Indoor Plants With Red Flowers

Arcadia Farms Fenceline Garden Plan 2014Earlier this month I shared my Main Garden Plan for 2014. If you’re interested in seeing what I’m growing in our 1, 152 square feet of raised beds, click here. In that post I mentioned that I had not yet created a plan for the Fenceline Garden, a 100-foot x 2.5-foot raised bed along the perimeter of our fenced backyard. For the last two years I used this space to grow vegetables for our CSA. This garden is divided visually by the ten 10’ sections of fence behind it. I typically treat each 10’ section as its own bed. Since we are no longer operating a CSA this space can be re-imagined.Arcadia Farms Fenceline Garden Plan 2014 the cards for 2014, I started thinking about transforming the Fenceline into an herb, cut-flower and kitchen garden. Herbs because I would love to produce all of my own (and I use a lot of herbs in my cooking); cut-flowers because I love flowers indoors and the beauty they bring to the yard; and a kitchen garden because I’d rather walk 20-some feet to pick lettuce for a sandwich than 200+ feet to the Main Garden.

Despite the fact that I’ve been pondering this for nearly six months, I could never quite seem to land on a design that seemed ‘right’ and sustainable. I won’t bore you with all of the failed approaches I took – but I will bore you do want to tell you about the design I finally felt was just right!

Veggies

It took me a while, but I finally made a conclusive list of what I want to grow in this space. I started by identifying the kitchen garden items that we eat most and/or would eat more readily if they could be harvested conveniently. I selected:

  • Cucumbers
  • Beans
  • Lettuce (just a small amount)
  • Scallions
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes (Cherry)
