Family plots

No, we haven't put in a cemetary out back, but things will be buried here (as soon as we can break up and amend the soil)

rainbow swiss chard
green beans
chioggia beets
gotta have it sweet corn (maybe)
butter bean edamame
butternut and argonaut squash
purple carrots
amish snap peas and sugar bon peas
brandywine, roma, and cherry tomatoes
and bell peppers from ed and alisha

did we leave anything out? Are you planting a garden this year?

I also plan to plant basil, rosemary, thyme, and mint(chocolate) in the sensory garden this year as well as more strawberries and a thornless raspberry. Help! We need more room.

Lara at the Lazy Organizer is hosting Talk About Tuesday and she's got a scrapbook giveaway this week.

Wow! The garden area is looking good. I can just imagine all the heavenly smells that will come from the sensory garden. We actually have some peas and spinach coming up in our square foot garden. I can;t wait for spring to finally arrive so we can plant the rest!

I love corn!! That is the best thing you could ever put in a garden. :)

Jan said...

Wow-it looks great! This is my first visit to the new site. Catching up on your posts reminded me I never thanked you for the breadsticks you sent over the other week. Thanks. They were excellent. I tried the recipe for the first time late Saturday evening. Fun, fun. I'm going to try small rolls for deli sandwiches for a Sunday gathering this week. I'm sad Gracie still isn't feeling better. Mine are under the weather as well.

For me, no garden is complete without some leaf lettuce. I love being able to go outside, grab a few leaves, and make a fresh salad or put it on a sandwich. Yummmmm.

cocoa - I am jealous of your spinach, I've got to get mine in.

amber - thank goodness we can get loads of the fresh stuff from the farmer's market

jan - sorry to hear about you all being sick too (hope it wasn't from us)

jen lav - what are your favorites?

What a great space for a garden. We have just a small space, but are trying to make the most of it this year.

Jennifer Lavender said...

All I've ever grown is plain old green leaf lettuce, but this year I think I want to try red leaf lettuce and spinach. I need to learn more about the different varieties. My favorites are usually prepackaged into the "spring mix".

That looks great so far. You are much farther along than I am in the garden process. I look forward to seeing how it goes with your garden.

I love all these gardening posts! I'm going to try a full blown vegetable garden this year for the first time. Wish me luck!

Heffalump said...

Ah, I see the recipes are already here! I should have checked first...

A lot of people have gardens going on this week! That's great!

I wish it was nice enough to start a garden here!

I haven't tried a veggie garden yet, but I've tried (and failed) the last 2 yrs to grow a flower garden. now we have a pup who will probably trample it all, so I don't know what we're going to do, especially since I desperately need a flower garden in memory of my daughter.

Anyway your garden looks great, even if it's just dirt so far! I like how you have it set up.

So nice!!
Sorry Baby G is still yucky, though. This will be a fun new site. Very cute.

Mrs. Organic said...

thanks for all the fun encouragement on the dirt patches, one day there will be green stuff in them.

baby G is doing better - no fever today, just coughing.
