13 Things I Like to Grow in My Garden

Thursday Thirteen

  • Potatoes
  • Lettuce (love going outside to pick a leaf for my sandwich)
  • Radishes (just because they grow fast)
  • Rhubarb (love those perennials)
  • Bush Beans
  • Bush Peas (the kids eat them right out of the garden)
  • Tomatoes (hoping to try one of those upside down planters next year)
  • Strawberries
  • Basil (it still hasn't come up yet)
  • Onion Chives (another perennial)
  • Garlic (trying it for the first time)
  • Spinach (I'll only eat it fresh in salads)
  • Raspberries
There is no point in growing corn, because the raccoons will just harvest it a few days before I plan to. And I can't seem to get carrots to grow in my soil.

Maisie, since your list contains rhubarb, I am guessing that you live north of the Mason-Dixon. I've only enjoyed rhubarb when I have visited in Wisconsin. Happy TT.

Lori said...

It sounds like a wonderful garden. We are going to have one too next Spring:) Happy TT.

Those upside down planters are crazy, aren't they? I have never seen them in person before though.

This year is my first time doing lettuce, and I LOVE it! I can't believe that I didn't do it before!

Wow! That sounds exciting. I could never grow a garden. I kill plants, so I could only imagine how awful I would be at a garden too!

I love the header! Pooh Bear is my favorite!

Di said...

I don't have a garden, but if I did, I would grow Cilantro. Then I would just walk out there every day, pick a leaf and inhale!

This is a great list. We started a garden this year and love it. Best of luck with the crop! God bless.

Michelle said...

I grow tomatoes, strawberries and herbs (chives, basil, parlsey, mint) in pots on my back deck. I don't have a garden, but when I do, I'll grow raspberries and rhubbard too.

I wish I lived next door to you and your garden and we were friends! Sounds wonderful.

I'm Kellan, btw - nice to meet you. See you soon.

I just wish I had a garden! LOL! My grandfather used to have a great big one before they moved into town. I hope to have a smallish one before too long, after we afford the fence to keep it protected from the neighbor youngin's! There is just nothing like home grown tomatoes, from your own home, not the grocery store! ;)

Thanks for the visit, and happy TT!
