So far I have:
* Lutz Winter Keeper (beets)
* Xtra Tender 277a (corn)
* Mammoth Dill
* Sugar Star (snap peas)
* Henderson Baby Limas (beans) - 60 day variety
* Jacob Cattle (shell/dry beans)
* Romano (pole beans)
* Burgess Buttercup (winter squash) plus some saved seeds also
* Straight Eight (cucumbers)
* Pickling (cucumbers)
* We'll also pick up some tomato plants nearer to planting - Jet Star and Amish Paste
We have some asperagus and I would like to add some more to the mix this year. We won't see those till next year probably or even the year after, but we all like asperagus.
I think that's all we'll have room for this year. If the garden is expanded by planting time I may add some more herbs. I want to put is some penny royal (good to use in a flea bath for the dogs with tansy which I have) and also some sage and basil to eat fresh, freeze and dry. I have oregano, caraway, tumeric, and camomile established already, but would like to get some other perennial herbs started. I don't think sage or basil will keep, but penny royal should. I'll need to experiment with others in another year as my herb garden has been reduced in size. When we move into the house I'll probably move all the herbs out of their current locations and bring them up closer to the house so I can take better care of them.
OK, I've rambled on probably more than I needed to. It's just in the planning stages right now, but hopefully will become reality this spring.
Any others of you planning your garden yet?
|maybe instead of a horizontal garden, we could plant a vertical garden|
