  • I have watermelon, swiss chard, boston bibb lettuce, cucumber, new mexico peppers, jalapenos, sweet peas, purple basil, sweet basil, sweet 100s, beefsteak toms, arugula, hyssop, rosemary, and parsley.

    When the greens are finished, I'll put in squashes, more herbs, broccoli, and some later winter veggies.

    i'm hanging my tomatoes this year. it is rocking out! Do have a bird nest in the beefsteaks though... hoping the poop will fertilize.

  • Assuming everything gets going here, I've got oregano, basil, dill, chives, tomatoes, hot peppers, sweet peppers, peas, dwarf bok choy, and watermelons.
    And I'm container gardening on a balcony to boot! If I can do it, anybody can.

  • well they are for picking so as long as you use them that's good. I just look around for any square inch that we typically don't really use of the yard and that's out of the way of running toddlers and till (bought an old tiller of craigslist last year for $75-not pretty but works!) then i buy the 95 cents packs of seeds from Wal-Mart and plant what we will eat or can or freeze. As far as kids picking them...well....GL! ha ha my kids pick the strawberries too when they are not suppose to so i told them it would make the strawberries "sad" if they don't get to stay and grow big..worked so far this year but i will tell them when it's okay to pick them?.?.?.? make a good story for them i guess ha ha!

  • cucumbers, sweet peas, lettuce (hopefully they will turn out better this year) potatoes (good if you have rotton potatoes that are growing spurts on them already), radishes, cherry tomatoes and regular tomatoes, and corn. wanted to do zuccini and sunflowers this year (everyone loved my zuccini bread and homemade sunflower seeds last year).
