Default What's everyone planning on planting this year.

We plan on planting yellow and butternut squash, pink eye purple hull peas, okra and tomatoes. Going to be an interesting growing season as we moved to the Texas Hill country and keeping the deer out of our garden looks to be a real challenge.

To be totally honest, I don't have any kind of plan whatsoever. I'll be moving in about a month - the wife and I just bought a house on the other side of town. Fortunately, its a short move, but all of my seed starting stuff is staying packed in a tub. I figure it'll be a lot less stressful to move a tub and just wing it on the garden, as opposed to moving a half dozen flats of seedlings. My folks started some extra tomatoes and peppers, so those should be ready to go as soon as we finish the move. Aside from that, I'll be playing it by ear. The new house already has some raspberry canes established and a couple apple trees in the back yard. I'm actually more excited about the prospect of having some fresh fruit to feed my new winemaking hobby. Again, we'll see how that goes when the time comes.

I've got bell, jalepeno, pepperocini, cucumber and various herb seedlings growing. I plan on starting some tomatoes and cayenne peppers later this week and some butter nut and spaghetti squash first week of April. I am going to plant some peas outside this week. I'll have green beans and black beans as well as corn when it warms up. I bought 8 crowns of asparagus to plant but that won't do anything until next year

a few tomatoes, pole beans, maybe a few peppers, they take so long to do anything here.
Made a batch of tomato wine years ago that was really good, wonder if I can duplicate it.
May put out an apple, or a pear, or plum, or something, the asparagus sounds interesting.

It's going to be a while before I can plant anything, still have a couple feet of snow in my yard with another 6-12" coming tomorrow night but I have some seeds started. Green beans, cucumbers, squash, lettuce, tomatoes, scallions and zucchini this year.

I still remember a time when we used to have consistent snow cover from mid-December through the end of February. Its been a long time since we've had a winter like that. Heck, if I added up all the days we had snow on the ground from the last two winters, it probably wouldn't be much more than a week. Farmers around here are already getting that itch to get out in the field. Some, not too far south of here, have already started planting some corn. Years ago, I don't think any would have even considered getting the planter out until tax day.

We've had kind of a weird winter here, a decent amount of snow but lots of warm days mixed in as well. We had one day where it got into the 60's in February. This is the view from my front porch right now. To the right of that grille is where I plant my garden.

Lovely! I miss snow...

Planting the usual. I have 8 raised beds, 3' x 12'. Two will have pole beans, probably two with tomatoes, one with peppers, one with zucchini, one with Swiss chard and the last with cukes.

The bed I had cukes in last year did nothing. So much of nothing that I didn't even have to weed it. I have NO idea how that came about, as the soil in all the beds is the same mix of topsoil and compost. I sure hope that it will produce something this year!
