This years garden is going to be our biggest ever. I have yet to measure and map it out but at least four times last years size! I am so incredibly excited about this and cannot wait to place my seed order. The other day a friend said that seed catalogs are gardener's porn. lol I couldn't agree more. I have loved looking through my seed catalog this year and dreaming of all the possibilities. It is now very well marked and the cover is falling off. So onto the garden. Here is a list of what we are growing this year:
Summer Squash Cocozelle
Fleabane (insect repellent)
Horehound (used for coughs and colds)
Green Beans (bush and pole)
Lettuces (many varieties, including a hot weather one)
Walla Walla Onions (will not be ready till next year)
Peas (shelling and snap)
Pumpkins (edible varieties)
Yellow Crookneck Squash
Sweet Meat Winter Squash
Ground Cherries (yes I am trying these again, even after last years fail lol )
Tomatoes (several varieties)
In addition to growing for ourselves and preserving/storing for the winter we are growing a few items for my mom. We have also offered up a share of our garden to local friends (mini CSA style). I didn't think anyone would be interested in buying a garden share from us but threw the idea out there anyway. Now we have a list and are thinking about doing a second share. After I do the actual mapping and planning I will decide if a second share is even possible. I wouldn't want to commit to one and then realize the space is just not there.
What is going on in your garden right now? Are you just at the planning stages or in harvest season? I love getting comments and read each and every one.
