So this is what I'm wanting to plant this year:
red and green peppers
tomatoes, lots and lots of tomatoes (I'm totally canning salsa this year)
cucumbers, lots of these little guys (I'm going to can dill pickles, I hear they're super easy)
corn - I'm going to attempt this again. I'm convinced that my seeds were just bad last year.
sugar snap peas - so excited about this
carrots - anyone have a tasty carrot bread/cake recipe?
watermelon - maybe I'll actually get fruit this year... just a thought
pumpkins - I do not cook with these, they are purely for fall decor
asparagus - these were already planted when we moved in and I think this is the third year, so I'm crossing my fingers that we'll get something this year since these have become a favorite at our house
strawberries - I planted these last year, so hopefully I'll get some sweet tastiness this year
Now of course I've got to see if there's room for all of this in the garden. For this I've found a great little garden planning tool here. Now I just need to go fight my way through the hyperactive dog into the garden so that I can measure my planter boxes. Do you plant a garden? If so what are you planting this year?
My garden plot
The garden was a huge selling point for me when we looked at the house this time last year. Raised planter boxes and an automatic drip system in place. Yes please.
Can you spot the out of control asparagus!?!
