This year's list

Post  lisaphoto on Sat Mar 31, 2012 5:15 pm

So
far the garden includes (or is going to include this year) peach trees,
raspberries, blueberries, lots and lots of tomatoes, artichokes,
asparagus, lettuces and arugula, garlic, spinach, onions, cucumbers,
strawberries, broccoli, broccolini, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, swiss
chard, rhubarb, shallots, 4 kinds of basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano,
sage, green peppers, lavender, dill, 3 kinds of hot peppers, corn, green
beans, a few kinds of winter squash, zucchini, leeks, cilantro,
and chives.


All in a small little back yard in the middle of suburbia.
Most in SFG, some in ground, a lot in containers. Anyone else would think this list is pretty ridiculous, but I'm sure you all grow even more.

Shocked W O W !
Ambitious. Where are you going to grow all of those? And what are you going to do with all those tomatoes?

It doesn't seem ridiculous to me. I'm just starting out and want to try growing everything! Laughing Except for grapefruits and I need to take baby steps. Grapefruits are a little too bitter for me.

Your garden endeavours sounds pretty close to mine, except I only have 5 tomato varieties planted.
I am ALSO curious what you are going to do with all of those tomatoes, I have about 45 tomato plants growing, and I HAVE plans for every tomato.
Just curious what are your plans. Smile

I can't wait to see how those do!) 5 peppers (1 sweet and 4 varieties from warm to super hot) Eggplant (for a friend- I hate the stuff), swiss chard, various salad greens (scatter seeded and picked young- no heads for me), chives, basil (3 varieties), dill (2) broccoli, cukes (3 varieties- my fav being lemon cukes. so yummy), salsify, zucchini, yellow crookneck and straight squash, carrots, leeks, beans, (I think 3 varieties of beans too), corn, muskmelons, watermelons and some interesting heirlooms, some winter squash... I think there is more but my brain is fried. lol

Weezie...I wondered if you were going to grow ground cherries again. How did they do last year? Funny little things. They remind me a tomatios...those green paper wrapped tomato-like things.

I thought of a possible solution for catching them & keep them off the ground...an upside down cloth bag? Like a reverse parachute? Attach the bottom around the stem, leave 'sag' room to catch the cherries, cover the plant and attach the top to a stake or teepee?

The fabric would be light and thin like tulle or floating cover...think it would work?

Now to have a super small one for strawberries to keep them free of roly poly bugs!
