4/26 - Do you have a garden?

DH planted our first 'real' garden last weekend. I grew up right in the city of Boston, and we didn't even have grass...so I'm kind of fascinated by the garden! We planted green beans, peas, zucchini, cucumbers, broccoli, brussel sprouts, carrots, lettuce, potatoes, and onions.

What do you grow in your garden (if you have one)?

Re: 4/26 - Do you have a garden?

  • No garden for us.  I have neither the time nor the discipline to tend to a garden, I can't even remember to water a houseplant. A garden would be a diseaster.  DH would like to plant one one of these centuries- I told him good luck.  Maybe when Nicholas (and any other future LO's) are older we can do it as a family activity.   Someone gave us a pepper plant and I was like "what the hell am I supposed to do with this?!"  left it on my back porch and killed it.

  • Last year we had a garden with lots of tomatoes, some green peppers, cucumbers, and watermellon.

    This year we are doing a topsy turvy stand planter like this:

    We are growing tomatoes, green peppers, mild banana peppers, and jalapeno peppers.

    I also have a small planter in which I'm trying to grow some strawberries.

  • We bought some veggies and herbs to grow, but we still haven't planted them. Dh was really into it and I like the idea of a garden but not the work, so we'll see if we really start one.
  • We do!  Besides various plants, bushes, trees, etc. around the yard, we have a pretty huge veggie garden.  It was amazing last year, and we are expanding it this year, so I'm really excited.  If someone will remind me how to pip, I will post the pictures of it.Smile
  • We would like one, but I don't think we'll have one this year.  We have some landscaping to do before we plant a garden.  We just moved into our house last spring and haven't had much time to work on the backyard.  I'd love to plant tomatoes (I think I'll do some potted ones instead) and zucchini.

    First you have to post your picture online on a website like photobucket.

    Then you right click on the image and "save image location."  Then come here to send a reply, and at the top of the text box there are little tools.  You want to pick the one that looks like a photo of a tree.  You click on that, and then paste the image location into the image url field.

  • We do!  I've been saying for years that we'd do one and we finally got around to it.

    We have hot peppers, bell peppers, beans, tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, potatoes, okra, cucumbers and squash.   The plants just started poking through the soil.  Yay!
