I started planting my garden today!! finally dried out and it is finally warm too!

Just seeds though mind you.............................

We have a frost warning out for tonight so I

will not be putting any plants out as of yet!

I will be planting tomato and pepper plants later.

Being in the garden is HEAVEN on earth to me!

See what seeds I am planting? What have you

planted in your gardens?

Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful holiday

weekend. We won't be doing anything but planting

the gardens and the farmer will be in the field seeding.

Of course, we will have a fun cook-out on Monday--

but then it will be back to work for the farmer!!!!!

So, leave me a comment and tell me what you

planted in your gardens this year! I really am interested

in what others are planting!

Hokey toot! You have quite the variety there! I put in some chard, not a lot, just some seeds from a friend. Arugula and several other kinds of lettuce, french radishes, carrots, broccoli raab, peppers (red and yellow), halapeno peppers, Lincoln peas, beans, zucchini, a variety of herbes, and over 20 tomato plants. (tomatoes and peppers going in tomorrow) I am putting in mostly heirloom varieties, Purple Cherokee being one of my favorites. You're right, a little bit of heaven on earth!

Hooray for gardens! I got mine planted last week. We had lots of rain, and it took awhile to dry out. I planted tomatoes (20 plants, a variety of types), pickling cucumbers, red/yellow peppers, spaghetti squash, several kinds of lettuce, spinach, and several kinds of herbs.

Mine is just a small garden, and I used some containers, too. I'm very excited to see how everything does. :o)

Happy gardening to you!

Oh, how fun. This year I planted tomato plants,(cherry, grape and heirloom) green beans, yellow crook neck squash, another type of squash, zucchini, bell peppers - green and yellow, jalapeno peppers, chili petina peppers, cucumbers, and some herbs.

I already have squash on the vines, we have had a lot of rain, so I am hoping that they do not turn to mush before it is time to pick them.

What a timely post. I spent all day in the garden(s). I already had potatoes, Swiss chard, onions, spinach, leaf lettuce & radishes all planted and up. We harvested some radishes and spinach.

Today I planted sweet potatoes, 4 different tomatoes (Better Boy, Roma, Yellow Pear and LA Cherry); a red pepper and a hot pepper, herbs- thyme, oregano, sage (basil went in last week).
I also planted dianthus, coreopsis and a hydrangea.
I weeded, mulched and watered (alot of watering).
I'm tired but happy. You can send that rain down to us!!

I so wish I was into gardening!! I just don't have the time!! But if I did have a garden I would have radishes, cucumbers, peppers, watermelon and strawberries!! Probably even more but that is all I can think of and since I won't have them I'd better not think to much about them cause I'll crave them LOL!!

No veggie garden for us yet... DH promises when he retires we will once again have one. Just annuals and perennials here. And not as many as in past years. The old knees don't like it! LOL But enought to be pretty and make the place look interesting.

Have a great weekend!
hugs, Linda

We don't have a garden either...Stush said he had to tend to one when he was little and swore he'd never have one, it's to shady here anyway. I do have flowers though that I plant such as geraniums and impatients:)
Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

I'm with you, being in the garden is so peaceful and relaxing.
I have planted 9 heirloom tomatoes, 9 roma tomatoes, 2 yellow tomatoes, cucumbers, green beans, zucchini, summer squash, white and yellow corn, banana peppers, pumpkins, garlic, sunflowers, cantelope and watermelon. I think thats it. This year I planted some blueberry plants and herbs and am anxiously awaiting, to see how they do.

I do have a garden but it's not heaven to me! I do it because we LOVE fresh veggies but it's so hard to find the time to get the darn thing weeded and it gets out of control many years. Oh well, we still get veggies out of it but it's a ugly garden! I usually plant zucchini, spinach, onions, squash, cucumbers, lettuce, green beans and our favorites, tomatoes and green peppers which I finally got in this week. This year I also planted eggplant....never done it before and don't have a clue what I am going to do with them but wanted to give them a a try. Yours looks like quite the variety and very good stuff there!

I enjoy your posts, and mostly connecting with other like-minded girls! Here on the Monterey Bay in California I could literally grow a garden year round. I don't because the ground needs a rest and so do I... even though gardening is heaven to me. I have to put my garden in early because we have dense San Francisco type fog that settles over us for about 6 weeks during the summer. Its too cool for many of the crops I'd love to plant, but right now my corn is waist high and are showing their top tassels. I have potatoes, onions, leeks, garlic, beans, lettuce, peas, lettuce, artichokes, tomatoes (in the greenhouse... the only place they will grow well here), beets, carrots, pumpkins... broccoli (lots and lots of it) and cabbage. I've been harvesting and filling my freezer for about a month now. Show us photos as your garden grows.

Oooo! I love that you are planting your garden and can't wait to see what comes up from it. Here in the 'big harsh' I don't have anywhere to plant. Also can't keep anything growing in this place as I face North and South. The North side makes plants too leggy trying to get to the sun and the South side burns my poor little plants until they shrivel and die. It's always been a sore spot with me as my friend, AS, has always given me some really beautiful plants and flowers in pots. Oh well, at least I can live vicariously through your garden. Hope it grows abundantly. xxoo

Nice to hear from you again! :0) And thanks for stopping by my blog! I have been horrible about posting lately- always seems like I have so much going on I never have time. LOL. I had a garden last year, but my thumb wasn't very green apparently- the only things that grew great were our tomatoes. :0)

You sure do have alot of seeds. This year, I'm only doing tomatoes and some herbs. Would love to do more, but dont have the time now.

Ahhhh, the best time of the year! God loves us and this is the proof-sharing in the creation.....
We planted 3 crops of onions so they wouldn't all be ready at thte same time. Onions are alot of work. We have zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, two planting of green beans-again, so they aren't all ready at the same time-French breakfast radishes-good for sandwiches and so sweet you could eat them for dessert-kohlrabi, tomatilla, cherry tomatoes,romas, rutgers tomatoes for slicing and canning, red potatoes. white potatoes, bell peppers, anaheims, cubanelas, poblanos, mammoth jalapenos, carrots, eggplants,marigolds, zinnias, mammoth sunflowers, burgundy sunflowers, Mexican sunflowers....I wanted to plant okra but not enough room. We have a big bed of asparagus and this year we started some rhubarb. One very friendly neighbor plants a generous crop of sweet corn that he shares with us because I share pepper relish with him. There are raspberries and blackberries that grow along the railraod tracks near here so we get plenty of those, too and my darling sister has an apple orchard that provides enough fruit for the whole family plus her neighbors! I guess we are pretty blessed!

Glad that you finally got to get in the garden. I just love it,except for the weeds that seem to what to grow too. I planted cucumbers,tomatoes,peppers,carrots,peas,
radishes,onions and beets. I also planted a lot of marigolds around the edge to detour those little rabbits.
God bless.

Hi! I found your blog from another blog I'm following--love it!
I planted watermelon, beans, squash, corn (doing a 3 sisters kinda thing) sunflowers, cantelope, potatoes, peppers...that might be about it. Of course I had to plant everything in Feb-early April being in AZ and the weather is hitting 100 degrees now! This is my first garden and I have to say it was pretty disapointing--whether it was the birds or bugs or rabbits or mice (not sure which) as soon as those little sprouts would pop up they'd be gone by evening! Every single one! They were food for someone but not me! I have a chain link fence surrounding my garden but I guess that wasn't good enough. If you have the time feel free to post me comments on my blog and let me know if you have dealt with anything like that. Thanks! -Pauline
