I'm Back!

jleiwig(6)March 25, 2011

Hey everyone.

Afer a way too long absence, and not even planting a garden last year I'm back with a gusto this year!

I still have my original 4x8 bed, and I'm planning on adding at least two and possibly three more 4x4 beds along my fence line. The tomatoes and peppers will still be in the SWCs. Probably the herbs too this year to give them their own space.

This year I will be planting:






Bell Peppers

Jalepeno Peppers

Another hot pepper

Sugar and snow peas

Green beans



Cucumbers ( slicing and pickling)

I'm also thinking about devoting a 4x8 bed to corn this year as well. Still debating that one.

And then for herbs I'll have cilantro, basil, dill and oregano.

And whatever else I can find at the garden center that piques my interest

I've given up on growing from seed though. I don't have an area that's condusive to that, so I returned to buying my plants after an expensive foray into seed starting.

Welcome back Jleiwig! I wasn't around much last year either, but I did plant my garden. You and plant many of the same things. So sorry you aren't starting from seed. It's much cheaper and I haven't found it that hard, even though my tomatoes have germinated like crap this year.

Can't wait to hear all about your experience.
