  • This year we planted green beans, peas, corn, radishes, onions, carrots, pumpkins, lettuce, spinach, and broccoli. The only thing we really got to harvest was the radishes, a few peas and carrots, and the broccoli is just about ready. Well, the spinach and lettuce came in really good, but it was bitter, so i gave it all to the chickens!

    I learned that you HAVE to thin things when they start growing or they will never get real big. We had a ton of itty bitty carrots and radishes!

    We had frost in June AND September this year, so my pumpkins, peas and beans didn't get a chance to do much.

  • It's at my mama's house but we did buy plants for it and helped her take care of it. (It already frosted in Iowa so it's done for the year)

    We had:
    Tomatoes (big beef, roma, cherry, 4th of july)
    Green Bell Peppers
    Green Beans
    Chile peppers
    These tiny little hot as h*ll peppers that I can't remember the name of. lol

    I think that was it...

  • Not a good one this year! With my Cancer & being away for 6-12 hours on Chemo days Etc.. & other apts. then we got too much rain! We had many flower gardens. We had tomatoes, corn, green peppers, potatoes and all. But we barely got anything to survive on. It was our worst year Ever.. 60 tomato plants & 20 pepper plants. DH planted them for us, our DD's, his parents, Brothers, aunts & friends & we got none! I didn't get one!! Its Sad!! I hope for all those that had good ones, yay! Now we got frost/freeze earlier and there's nothing left. DH's corn for his chickens was quite plentiful! His Indian corn was nice! Some was even pink for breast cancer Some of his sunflowers and angel trumpets were 14' feet tall. Pretty!. He had a few big pumpkins too. But nothing edible.
