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.

Come quickly, Lord Jesus
