I have been planning my garden ever since New Year’s Day! It won’t be long before Old Man Winter finally makes his final bows and disappears for about 6 months, and I am so anxious for the return of blue skies, sunny days, and plenty of rich black dirt in which to dig.
Here’s the basic plan for my garden so far:
Green Beans– Royal Burgundy; Contender; Taylor Horticultural (all bush beans)
Tomatoes–Red, Black, and Pink Brandywine Tomatoes; Opalka Tomatoes; Cherokee Purple Tomatoes; Early Girl;
Sweet Corn–Peaches and Cream
Popcorn–Miniature Colored Popcorn
Cucumbers–Boston Pickling; Sumter Pickling
Zucchini–Dark Green Zucchini
Peppers–Corno del Toro; Anaheim; Leutschauer Paprika; Poblano Peppers; King of the North;
Squashes–Vegetable Spaghetti; Variety of Pumpkins for Halloween
Melons– Jubilee Watermelons; Moon and Stars Watermelons; Orangeglo Watermelons; Hale’s Best Cantaloupe
Garden Berry Garden Huckleberry
Shell Beans–Jacob’s Cattle Gold Beans
Sunflowers–A variety of differing types
Beauregard Sweet Potatoes
Potatoes–White, red and, perhaps, a blue type.
I am sure there are some things that I’ve forgotten. I just can’t wait for winter to end so I can actually get started planting this stuff! Bring on the sunshine!
