Extra space in the garden... what to plant?
June is almost here and so is the hot weather. I have extra space in the garden and I am pondering ideas for stuff that can get established in the heat and also fruit by the fall here in north AL.
I already have lots of tomatos and peppers (serrano, 2 kinds of sweet and poblanos), enough eggplant, too much summer squash and cukes. I've got two kinds of basil (which is already bolting), parsely, fennel and cilantro. I've also got butternut squash with a generous allotment of space to ramble.
I have a 2'x18' strip of bed next to my peppers, and a section about 10'x10' that can be subdivided however needed. I don't like okra, and corn would cast too much shade on the plants to the north of it. I don't want to add any perennials to this part of the garden.
What do you think I should add?
