Garden Plan 2009

It is time to start planning our garden this year and I thought I would share the experience with you.  We hope to plant our seeds in the next week or two.  Last year, we had great success with our first garden and we plan to do even better this year!

Last year we grew:  potatoes, two varieties of lettuce, sweet banana peppers, pepperoncini peppers, jalapeno peppers, yellow and green bell peppers, carrots, peas, green onions, white onions, green beans, broccoli, and two varieties of sweet corn.

Please pardon the weeds!

I also tried growing some herbs in pots and only had success with basil.  I hope to have basil, parsley, chives, and cilantro this year.

Everything produced an amazing yield for our first attempt except the white onions and broccoli.  This year we plan to change a few things including planting fewer peppers.  I would like to plant some new things too such as:  garlic, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, melons, and a tomato plant.

Wish us luck!
