    Default What's In Your Garden This Year? (2014)

    Lots of folks across the U.S. already have their gardens planted while I sit here looking out the window wondering when the ground will finally thaw so I can plant mine(-ish). At least I have all the plants safe and snug in the greenhouses.

    This year I will be planting:
    Tomatoes
    Carrots
    Yellow Beans
    Green Beans
    Radishes
    Peppers
    Pickles
    Cukes
    Dill
    Sweet Corn
    Squash
    Pumpkins
    Red Beets
    Zuccini
    Potatoes
    Onions
    Peas
    ...and a few others I can't remember at the moment...lol.

    I'll also be trying kale for the first time, too just to see what all the fuss is about.

    So,...what's in your garden this year?

    I normally just grow lettuce. Throw seeds everywhere and watch it grow then eat. Easy as ****.

    Pretty much this but swap the cat for dog..

    A few tiny dog plips on any given day im feeling lazy, an overgrown shrub from next door invading like a triffid & an assortment of stones, seats & unused gardening equipment.

    Oh an lets not forget the rusty barbecue, it adds flavour i say

    Well, I haven't started anything put the peppers yet, but it will be the usual:

    Tomatoes
    Cayenne peppers
    Jalapeno peppers
    Zucchini / Summer squash
    Cucumbers
    Green beans
    Carrots
    Basil

    The asparagus and oregano are perennials, and the garlic is already in the ground from last fall.

    I threw a tomato out of my window once and unintentionally had a tomato tree.

    Tomatoes
    Basil
    *A wild onion patch unintentionally grows right next to my tomatoes; they are a bit more pungent than usual.

    I used to have a fairly large garden, but in summer 2012 moved so I could complete a Bachelor's. Because the soil here is about 90% clay (hard as rock when dry, slick as snot when wet) and it's just not in the budget to put in good raised beds in the tiny yard we have, I have had to downsize and resort to container gardening. So, where once I had a nice long list with lots of core veg and always a few oddballs, I just grow various tomatoes and peppers.

    Buuut... that doesn't mean I've stopped the jamming and pickling madness that started in February with asparagus and continues up until November. I'm finishing my BS at Oregon State U., which began as an Ag campus and is still well known for it (many favorite blackberry cultivars originated at OSU), and in the process I've made some very beneficial connections. Almost all of the berries I use come through them, and they get free jam...and other perks for both sides as well.

    So, a gardener may not be able to garden every year, but that doesn't mean they have to go without the goods!
