Last year, I really slacked on the garden. Â I guess I was just tired of doing it all myself and wanted to focus on other things in the warm weather. Â I learned that having a not-so-great garden was just as much work as a full garden. Â So, this year, I’m picking up the pace and even growing some new things, too. Â I hope to encourage the kids to spend more time in the garden with me, and let them pick out some things they want to grow.
On the list to add to the garden this year is:
- green beans
- malabar spinach
- brussel sprouts
- shelling peas
- butternut squash
- crookneck squash
- jerusalem artichoke
- herbs: basil, parsley, cilantro, dill, oregano, Â thyme, dandelion
- and lots more flowers and medicinal herbs.
Have you ordered your seeds or planned your garden yet? Â What are you going to be growing?
