More on the garden

Well, the planning for the garden continues to move along. I have chosen a majority of my varieties, and am still looking for a few more.

So far the definites are:

  1. Pole Beans - Kentucky Wonder
  2. Radish - Champion
  3. Cucumber - Natural Pickler
  4. Gourds - Small Mixed
  5. Watermelon - Crimson sweet
  6. Corn - Bodacious
  7. Carrot - Scarlet Nantes
  8. Peas - Sugar Snap
  9. Tomato - Brandywine and others yet to be determined
  10. Pumpkin - Jack O Lantern
  11. Spinach - Space Hybrid (I will change this if I come across something better)
  12. Wax Beans - Golden Wax
  13. Summer Squash - Yellow Crookneck
  14. Beets - Early Wonder
I also got a hold of my onion sets and seed potatoes.

Here are my Stuttgart Onions all nestled in their bag waiting to go outside.

My Yukon Gold potatoes ready to be mounded up. Don't they look yummy?

Noo, don't you know, gardens are evil. We can't grow or hunt on our own, that's too much freedom for us to stand. Barack needs to control our food.

Just kidding. So you can really grow all that stuff? I'm impressed. The most my dad could muster were a few cherry tomatoes and some half-grown cucumbers here and there.

Good luck with the garden and the cute little onions. And do definitely stick with the "crookneck" squash. Heh.
