It’s about that time of year – time to starting thinking of great vegetable garden ideas! I can’t wait for it to be warm enough to start, how about you?
Normally our garden is set up as a salsa garden. Basically you’ll find tomatoes, jalapenos, and green peppers. Sometimes we’ll grow red peppers too, and dry them (those plants produce quite a bit – far more than you’ll ever use in one year!). Tomatoes we always have an abundance of as well, and I’m tired of chopping them.
Instead of our normal garden, I think it’s time for something different. Last fall we really got into the pumpkins both for pie and for decorating. So this year we might just plant two different types of pumpkins and see how that goes. Our main garden area is big enough to let them take over, so why not?
I might sneak in a tomato plant somewhere just because it wouldn’t be summer without garden fresh tomatoes. Although I have a feeling a few plants from stray seeds are hiding in the garden right now waiting to surprise me. It’s just a matter of cleaning up all the dead plants from last year to find them. 😉
What are you planning to plant in your garden this year?
