Default Who has their garden in?

Mine is mostly in. My potatoes, carrots, peas, radishes, beets, lettuce, red peppers, eggplant and tomatoes are in. I still have to put my corn, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower transplants int. My Dad also gave me some celeriac (I think that's how it's spelled) to try. My chives came back and my strawberry and raspberry plants.

What are you growing?

small garden here. Two tomatos, one pepper, and basil in pots. Rosemary, thyme and chives in the ground. I ate my first tomato from our plants at lunch today! I was so proud.

Our backyard is dappled/full shade while the front us full {too hot!} sun, so we decided to plant the pots so we can move them around to catch the sun in the back.

Ours is in! Zucchini, crookneck, cucumbers, tomatoes and at least 4 zillion varieties of peppers from jalapenos to the hottest hot habaneros (my boyfriend is a heat junkie AND a green thumb...lethal combination), plus other stuff I'm sure I'm leaving out.

Can't wait to not have to buy store produce in a month or so!

Haha, I remember last year my brother
(he was 3 at the time) wanted
to help in the garden, and he
accidentally spilled all the carrot
seeds in one place. So when the carrots
grew, there were big clumps of
carrots stuck to each other.

They were still tasty.

Everyone's garden sounds great.

I forgot about all the herbs we're growing, basil, cilantro, garlic chives, parsley to name a few. I forgot about cucumbers and zucchini in there as well.

My boys are really into the garden this year and planted their own sunflowers and peas.

I'm jealous of some of your gardens they sound awesome. We have a small one, tomatoes, 2 types of peppers, zucchini, cucumbers, onion,broccoli, acorn and spaghetti squash, peas, beans,cabbage, watermelon and cantaloupe. May sound like alot but only a couple of each plant! LOL
Only herbs I have are basil, chives and dill. I never know what to do with herbs!
