  • Tomatoes, eggplant, broccoli, yellow onions, shallots, garlic, strawberries, purple viking potatoes, red pontiac potatoes, asparagus, head lettuce, leaf lettuce, mesclun, kohlrabi, beets, radishes, bunching onions, sweet basil, globe basil, greek oregano, garlic chives, and regular chives.

    As soon as it gets warm enough, I have watermelon & cucumber starts ready to go into the ground, plus we will plant yellow squash, winter squash, pumpkins, zucchinni, carrots, corn, and sweet potatoes. I had cantaloupe starts too, but they didn't survive being transplanted to bigger pots, so I will be getting store-bought plants if I can find them. We're still debating on whether or not to get peppers and I am planning on planting peas in the Fall along with more lettuces & root crops. We also have 3 fruit trees that we planted last year that may bear fruit this year.

  • I've planted tomatoes, corn, and zucchini. I did a small garden so it won't be a bumper crop but the kids (4 and 10 yo)  have been having fun taking care of the plants they helped me start.

  • I have been growing an Avocado Tree since July'08. So far so good but no avocados yet atleast not for a long while....I love avocados.  My little tree is 3 feet tall :) I am so proud of it.

  • We haven't planted yet. we are still getting some really cold nights. But we will be planting tomatoes, green peppers, jalapenos, and cucumbers. It is a smaller garden but we love it and it gives us more than we need. We ended up giving some veggies away last year.
