What veggies are members planting this year?

 We have expanded both of our gardens again this year. We planted our onions and garlic about 2 weeks ago and started planting our potatoes last week until we heard the weather forecast for the weekend ( blizzard conditions and temps in the teens on Sat the first day of spring) so we only planted 2 rows and will plant the rest this week if the ground dries out enough.

Our gardens will consist of tomatoes, potatoes, carrots, beets radishes, turnips, onions, garlic, bell peppers, jalapeño peppers, okra, sweet corn, yellow squash, patty pan squash, spaghetti squash, zucchini squash, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, watermelon and cantaloupe.

The broccoli, cauliflower, spaghetti squash, celery, watermelon & cantaloupe are new additions to our garden we have never grown any of them before and have no idea how well they will grow in our area or how hard they are to grow. I am thinking I will put the watermelon and cantaloupe in an area all of their own since they require more room to spread out and grow. HAPPY GARDENING FOLKS!!!

We've got basil, rosemary, and thyme growing in our kitchen.  We've started tomatoes and eggplants in peat pots for the backyard.  I don't know if we'll try anything else this year or not.

I apartment garden using containers on my balcony so I have a much smaller selection. Strawberries, blue berries, grapes, cucumbers, spinach, basil, parsley.

by Member on Mar. 23, 2010 at 12:32 PM

I'm a newbie to this, so my selection includes: sunflower, corn, peas, purple hull peas, squash, onion, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, cantaloupe, watermelon, pumpkin, decorative gourds, collard greens, and carrots. I am planting herbs indoors. Wish me luck!!!!

I just got my seeds started today!  I planted 2 kinds of tomatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, green peppers, jalapeno peppers, and tobacco (don't know how well that will work..)  I have peas, beans, onions, carrots, beets, spinach, lettuce, radish to direct sow.  I will get a couple banana pepper, cabbage, and grape tomato plants from my mom, too.  I decided to not do the things that haven't done too well in past years, and to do MORE of the things that DO grow!  But the tob. is a new thing this  year.

I finally found some Brussels sprouts seeds!!  I just planted a couple of them for now.  I'm going to save the rest for late in the summer/fall planting.  I don't know anyone who has ever grown these, so I'm just crossing my fingers with this.

 I am is a Zone 4 area so we can have killer frost until in late May.  The only thing I am growing now is weeds.  I have startedsome Armenian Cucumbers and tomatoes.  My husband has reduced the size of our garden this year. But I am waiting for the horseradish and rhubarb to sprout up.

by Member on Apr. 7, 2010 at 5:18 PM

Flowering ornamental trees in large containers are the order of the day over here!  *wink*  I'm also going to plant herbs & edible flowers, along with tomatoes, of course, to enjoy & to share.

Love & light...Ceci

Since I'm pregnant this year we're trying to keep it "light" LOL

String beans
Snow peas
Asparagus (This will be it's fourth summer! EEK! I might finally get to harvest some!)
regular mint and spearmint
Dill (well it grows itself and we allow some of it to live)

I also plant marigolds, poppy's and nasturtium's around my vegetable garden.
