  • We haven't had a big garden in a very long time. Last year I grew tomatoes, potatoes, green beans and sunflowers. This year we are putting in a small pumpkin patch as well and I hope to add some brussel sprouts - those look so cool when they grow. Our daughter wants to grow sweet potatoes as well so we will probably add those too.

  • I always do tomatoes and fresh herbs. I've also done peppers, strawberries, and lettuce.

  • We plant tomatoes, hot peppers, lettuce, radishes, green beans, okra, onions, summer squash, zucchini and then all my herbs come back on their own. But, I live in TX where thatis possible.

  • My son is the gardener. He had 3 patches this last summer: an herb garden, a squash and melon patch, and one that had tomatoes, several types of peppers, and cucumber.

  • Yeah last year I did tomatoes and I made tons of spaghetti sauce. I love it and it saves us money every week. I also made sweet pickle relish with cucs from the local stand.
    So next year I am growing more stuff for sure. It is a great thing to do and the food you make is so much better than the store can ever carry. I am thinking the tomatoes again, cucumbers, yellow squash, and a few other veggies. I can not wait. Perhaps pumpkins too.
