Do you grow your own fruits and/or veggies?

We have a couple of apple trees, a peach tree and I grow a few herbs, but would really like to have a big garden with lots of stuff.....maybe next year!!

  • Yes! We don't have a huge yard, so we make the most of our space. We have a couple of hybrid trees, a 5-in-1 pear tree & a fruit cocktail tree (plums, nectarines, apricots & peaches), but they're not producing yet. We also have 3 perennial gardens (strawberries, asparagus & herbs) that, though small, produce big now that they're established. We also have 2 annual garden beds that we rotate crops between. Most years we grow 2 varieties of potatoes, bulb onions, spring onions, garlic, shallots, tomatoes, eggplant, zuchinni, winter squash, kohlrabi, carrots, radishes, broccoli, mesclun, leaf lettuce, cucumbers, Corn, cantaloupe & watermelon. This year wasn't a good year for our garden b/c we had an unexpected bunny & deer invasion, so we're going to be making some fencing changes for next year.

  • We have a small garden to grow... tomatoes, green peppers, hot peppers, onions, garlic...everything to make homemade salsa. The kids also planted carrots and squash. I think its fun to get them involved so they can see how things grow. They are more willing to try the veggies if they planted and saw them grow

    We grow for ourselves mostly, but share with my Dad & our elderly neighbors next door. We try to grow both things we can eat now & things we can put by for later use, like the potatoes. I typically don't have to buy potatoes, garlic or onions until at least March. Because we don't have a lot of space, we do a lot of succession planting and keep the garden busy from early spring until late fall.
