I've already plotted out where my garden will be next year. Along the back of my property line is a raised place that the old owners used as a parking spot. The dirt is too compacted for me to fix it up this year...but next year, it will look gorgeous!
Or I'll just take the empty lot next to my house by eminent domain. I'm joking! Maybe.
In the meantime, it's container gardening for this girl! My parents have always maintained a garden, and it's become quite the tradition for me. :-) I can't wait for the weather to warm up and to start harvesting some yummy home-grown veggies.
Wanna see what I've ordered for this year?
Biggie Chile Peppers... Hot. But not too hot!
Cubanelle Peppers... Sweet and good for stuffed peppers. Plus, they freeze well.
Jalapenos! I do them every year. And every single one of them gets used or given away to others that swear they'll use them!
Golden Rave Tomatoes... about the size of a quarter and slightly oblong. Everyone RAVED (pun intended) about these last year. So yummy and the color livens up a salad. :-)
Heirloom tomatoes. Something about them just tastes better! And I love not knowing which of the varieties I've been blessed with until they start growing.
Red and yellow Pear Tomatoes. Super sweet; cook well and are just fun in general. Love them!
Dwarf Meyer Lemon Trees. These lovelies lived until I had surgery in February. Then they died a swift painful death. Not casting blame on anyone *ahem*, but my brother doesn't have a green thumb. I ordered two more and I'm sure they'll live a long, happy life!
Dwarf fig tree! I saw this and just had to order one. Who knows if it'll grow...but trying to grow new things is always fun.
Have you started thinking about gardening yet? If so, what'cha gonna grow?
