We are also going to use winter rye as a green manure cover crop this fall


Also considering

Garlic southern exposure has SO FREAKING MANY varieties its hard to resist.

More basil for the same reason as garlic they have like 12 varietieslol

Birdhouse gourds

Would love to try
Amaranth
Millet
Sorghum
Cotton
Peanuts
Rice
Southern exposure seed exchange has so many things I never even thought about growing so now I'm going crazy wanting it all!

Re: what are you growing this year?

I haven't decided where I'm ordering my seeds, maybe form a couple different places, I've gotten SO MANY seed catalogues in. I'm hoping to have more space than just my 20'x40' garden and one 4x8 raised bed but that probably won't happen this year. My Dad is supposed to be cutting the wood off our land so we can expandbut he hasn't been able to due to snow (and spring-fall he's a lobster fisherman with NO spare time), he'll probably cut it during our Feb or March mini thaw. But I still have to stump, do land work, get the soil ready (we have crappy soil) and DH wants to buy a camper and go on a late summer trip across country so that will probably eat up any funds I was saving for garden expansion. But anywho....

I know I'll be planting tomatoes and peppers, we have a huge tomato and pepper based diet. I'll be planting peas and pole beans. I'd like to see if I can get carrots and beets to grow this year (the clay soil prohibited thier growth last year, I'm hoping the soil is mended enough this year). But I'm mostly going to focus on the tomatoes and peppers (oh and onion) and see if I can't get a ton of cilantro to grow (which I should start now, it's pretty SLOW growing), oh and I want to move my strawberries out of the gutters and transplant them to a raised bed, and plant herbs in the gutters instead.

I currently have some cilantro, rosemary, basil and one other herb I can't remember growing in pots inside (plus one tomato I saved fromt he gardent his fall. it had died but a new shoot came up and it's quite tall, tho scraggly looking, and has 2 flowers on it).

My ultimate goal is to have something besides zucchini. There is only so much zucchini one family can take!

ROFL! I grew zucchini one year and found it in my freezer (pureed, cubed, you name it) for the next 3! Not only did it grow like mad, my family only likes it fresh.

I want to do a cold frame too...

On my "must grow" list is:
Lettuce
Tomatoes
Carrots
Sugar Snap Peas
Beans
Zucchini (we'll have pigs I can throw excess to this year)
Summer Squash

Asparagus - I want to get 1 yr crowns

Fruit:
Blueberries - we have 1 bush, want to expand
Cherries - we have 2 trees
Strawberries - I'd like to plant some
Apple Trees - I'd like to plant 2

That's all I can think of...I'm really trying to keep it simple and actually be able to manage it this year!

broccoli
leeks
