Hello fellow mamas growing food. Let's chat about what your growing this year and your gardening plans. We just accepted a counter offer on the house we want with 10 acres so I'm looking forward to growing something this summer. I might buy some plants to help me out, but by gosh I'm going to see it through to the end of the season!!! I have moved during the summer the last 3 or 4 years. I'm so ready to have my garden in one place for a very long time!!
Here is what I'm planning on growing this year:
Wapsipinicon Peach tomatoes
Some kind of cherry tomato (I seem to grow those best anyways, hoping someone has some peacevine to swap. :))
red clover - planted around the tomatoes so they fix nitrogen while they are growing. :)
swiss chard (we eat lots of it here and make pesto with it during the winter) http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2011/07/recipe-for-chard-and-garlic-scape-pesto.html
brussel sprouts (if I get to putting some plants in for a Fall garden)
probably a few other herbs
In a pot:
Mint - maybe several kinds for my sun tea. Yum!! The farmer's market last year that I frequented had it every week at the snack van they had there. Mint with cherries and lemon was our fave when we made it at home.
My plans are to put in a couple raised beds in the front yard as soon as we move in hopefully. We need to fence the front yard as well.
