It's getting to be that time of year. I grow a garden each year - not only because I love it and it makes me happy, but because I like knowing where my food came from, I enjoy the freshness of it, it's a good lesson for G, but because I can also save some money growing fresh produce verses buying it. So many reasons.
I'm really struggling this year with what I want to grow though. I have four 4X8 beds. One is pretty much full of strawberries. The others are fair game. Historically I've done okra, summer squash, zucchini, green beans, pumpkins, chard, attempted peppers & lettuce, and then usually random other things I slip in when I get seeds or ideas from others.
I usually do a full bed of green beans, but I'm leaning towards just a half bed this year to free up room. I'm also thinking of trying the Haricot Vert variety since I really like them - but I have to find seeds. I keep pondering broccoli since G eats so much of it, but it has a short growing season so I don't know. Will do some squash and zucchini again I think. Probably some okra. I'm thinking of also trying some chard and kale this year. Wondering about a good type of lettuce too.
I keep pondering doing some herbs also in a box near the house.
What are you planning to put in your garden this year? Give me some ideas!
