I haven't been in the gardening section here in ages. I'm mourning the loss of my garden and green growing things. I decided to get a bunch of indoor plants. :)
My garden grew amazingly well, especially considering it was my first. I have pics here.
Right now, we're eating a lot of homemade pasta sauce. It's been a big help/money saver.
Potatoes are another thing that we're really using. Very easy to grow too, easy to harvest, easy to store.
We're relying on some veggies in the freezer but they're more "sides": green and yellow beens, chopped zucchini...
Next year i would grow more greens. Didn't really have enough chard etc.
I also bought apples when they were on sale last fall. Also bags of carrots, turnip and onion to make up for what I didn't plant and/or didn't grow so well.
Some veggies I only had enough to eat during the summer: corn, peas, carrots, green peppers.
Some veggies I NEED to get going sooner so I'm not harvesting at frost: tomatoes, green peppers.
I'm looking forward to planning next years garden but won't let myself get into it until mid/end January. Otherwise the wait will be too long.
