Friday Food for Thought: What's in Your Garden?

We've had a few hints of spring here, tulips popping up, a few warm days, and our usual spring rains.  It's got me thinking about what I want to plant this year.  Our yard is very wet, so I stick to containers on the deck.

My first tomato
Last year I had a few types of tomato plants, some bell peppers and jalapenos, and a ton of herbs.  Surprisingly, it was the jalapenos that did best for me, and I still have a good amount of the pepper jelly I canned last year to use them up.

I still can't decide what to go with this year.  What are you planting?


  1. We will definitely do tomatoes and I want to do basil, jalapenos and cilantro as well. Maybe some bell peppers too.

  2. I'm planning a small garden this year with tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, jalapenos, and garlic. I may even do a small planter with cilantro and basil.
