In the Garden

Spring is finally here, and I am so excited. This weekend, we will be planting seeds in the garden and clearing out those last remnants of leaves that helped protect the perennials from frost. Our vegetable list for this year has grown.

 

Vegetables & Herbs:

Artichoke (if I can finally get them to grow)
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Beans, Bush – 2 types
Beans, Pole – 2 types
Brussels Sprout
Carrots
Corn
Cucumber
Eggplant
Peas

Lettuce – Romaine and looseleaf
Peppers – Green, jalapeno, orange
Pumpkins
Radishes
Scallions
Tomatoes – grape, heirloom vine, paste
Watermelon
Strawberries
Basil
Chives
Cilantro
Mint
Oregano
Thyme

 

Flowers:
Nasturtiums
Marigolds
Zinnias
Hollyhocks
Echinacea

Calendula

Bells of Ireland

Sunflowers

 

We already have these planted (We put the asparagus and rhubarb in last year and the house came with tons of raspberries):
Asparagus
Raspberries
Rhubarb

 

We are planning on expanding our edible landscaping this year too. All of those horrid prickly bushes are coming out and will hopefully be replaced by blueberry bushes. Also, we will be adding more herbs, strawberries and maybe some ground cranberries to the landscape.

Of course this list will change over time as we see what grows, what doesn’t and as we run out of time and space. But for now, this is our  plan for the spring planting.
