It might not look like much yet, but there's a whole lot going on in this little crooked country veggie garden of mine!
Today I thought I'd share with you what I've planted this year in my veggie garden. This will be a great record from year to year of what works and what doesn't. Which is fabulous, since my memory isn't the best!
A couple of these items have been planted only in my garden OR my sweetie's garden, but most of them are in both gardens, for a double yield. The dry beans, garlic, celery, and kalettes are in my garden only, the string beans and beets are in his.
The garlic was put in last fall, and some of it succumbed to the bizarre winter we had. So there has been more planted this spring, for quite the mixed variety of unknown origin.
It's all good - I love all types of garlic!
It's happy. That's all that matters.
Descriptions for the rest have been taken from Johnny's Selected Seeds for the most part, which is where I ordered all my seeds this year.
99.9% of the items in the garden were started from seed, in my utility room. Or direct sowed into the garden. The kalettes were an exception as they were purchased at a local organic market.
Not too shabby for a girl from New York City, eh?
Everything has been planted....now bring on the sunshine and the sweet spring rains!
|White Cherry Tomato|
Appealing, pale yellow cherry tomatoes average 15-20 gm. and have a good, mild taste. Plants are compact and easy to pick.
|Sun Gold Tomato|
|German Johnson Tomato|
|Vermont Cranberry Dried Bean|
|Cannellini Dried Beans|
|Sugar Sprint Peas|
Huge yields of medium sized 3-4 lobed fruits. Has apparent tolerance to blossom drop as nearly every flower produces a pepper. Widely adapted but performs particularly well in cool climates where bell peppers are difficult to grow successfully.
|Joe's Long Cayenne Pepper|
Outstanding yields even in the hottest weather. Dependable producer of smooth, butter-yellow squash of excellent quality, even in stressful conditions.
