2013 Garden--Vegetable and/or Flowers

First day of the new year so no better time to start thinking of what we are going plant! I have already got my book ready to start planning on which raised bed or garden plot is going to contain. Can't wait to start picking all those fresh vegetables and fruits! What are you planning to plant this year? Going to try a new fruit,vegetable or flower? Do you have a favorite nursery or catalog you buy from?

I try each year to have a new item we can eat in my garden; not sure yet what it will be this year!

Will be planting: tomatoes, bell peppers, several hot peppers, green onions, kale, mustard greens, watermelon, cantaloupe, several types of lettuce, spinach, pole and bush green beans, wax beans, sugar snap peas, beets, turnips, yellow squash, zucchini, butternut squash, eggplant, and okra.

My strawberry beds are already established, rhubarb also. I have blueberries; both wild and some I planted, wild grapes, both wild and planted blackberries, peach trees, apple trees, and pear trees. Hopefully my cherry tree has survived the winter. I've been trying with the cherry trees for several years now and continue to not have much luck with them, but still trying! So ready to hear about your garden---vegetables, fruits or even if you have a flower garden!

Looks like you grow most of your food cat lover. I didn't do a garden last year just come container tomatoes and my strawberries. Will get back at it this year generally plant tomatoes, bell peppers, green beans, peas with my strawberry patch.

I've done turnips and cabbage in the past but couldn't keep the slugs and other bugs out of them.

We do try to be as self sufficent as we can. We love going out to pick and having such fresh vegetables and fruit! We also buy into a Amish sponsored CSA garden each year which supplements us sometimes with different things than we grow and sometimes things that aren't ready yet in our own garden.
