The Official Garden List!

We have started purchasing seeds and will start our indoor seed starting this weekend. This will be our biggest garden yet! Our goal this year is to grow almost ALL the produce we consume. Wish us luck!! We haven’t gotten any berries or fruit trees yet, so I guess we have to still purchase those, but everything else is on us! Since our diet will from now on be about 80% vegetarian (with the occasional meat splurge) this means a HUGE garden. Here is the run down so far:

Corn

Carrots

Radishes

Cucumbers

Chard

Leaf Lettuce

Green Beans

Wax Beans

Snap Peas

Okra

Beets

Spinach

Cantaloupe

Potatoes

Garlic (and lots of it)

Green Onions

Mixed Color Bell Peppers

Jalapeno Peppers

Crookneck Squash

Butternut Squash

Cabbage (extra for the chickens)

Cauliflower

Leeks

Onions

Sweet Potatoes

Head Lettuce

Lima Beans

Zucchini

Pod Peas

Tomatoes (Nick wants about 10-15 heirloom varieties)

Basil

Rosemary

Parsley

Thyme

Oregano

Dill

Echinacea

Lavender

Chives

And a huge butterfly, bird, and bee sanctuary.

We are thrilled! As soon as things get underway, we will post plenty of pictures!
