Garden Prep


I am itching to plan our garden! I have IDEAS that is causing my husband to narrow his eyes at me several times a day. I’ve been thinking about what we eat on a day-to-day basis and how we can plant a lot of those meal ingredients in our garden. Some tried-and-true foods we plant every year are:

Potatoes, Corn, Tomatoes, Radishes, Zucchini, Carrots, Peas, Romaine Lettuce, Spinach, Bell Peppers, Hot Peppers, Onions (red, white & green)

We also have a small raspberry bush that yields a nice little bowl of raspberries per season, although it is slowly getting bigger. Besides enjoying them fresh, I’m going to see if I have enough to make a jar of jam. Our oldest son adore PB & J on his toast in the mornings.

Some foods I’d like to add to our garden this year are:

Kale, Arugula, Beets, Green Beans, Sweet Potatoes (Yams), Leeks & Turnips

I’d love to add more to our garden but I’m pretty sure my husband would start sighing at me while repeatedly narrowing his eyes at me. I don’t know what his problem is, I’m the one that maintains the garden!

Our attitude toward planting things in the earth is very spur-of-the-moment. Very little planning is involved and it’s usually based on where things were planted the previous spring. But this year I want to be a bit more deliberate on where we place things, simply because some items do better (or worse) when placed around others.

More gardening/food talk to come later!

Until Next Time,
