|Hi Maggie! I saw a newspaper article just this morning about how vegetable gardening is really growing in popularity, especially this year, because of grocery store prices. It's always been popular with my family because of grocery store tastes, blech.
We haven't transplanted anything into our actual garden yet. You never know what the weather is going to do in Kentucky until after Derby weekend...it has snowed here the first weekend in May before! We're planning to start setting stuff out soon...if it'll stop raining, that is!
This year we expanded our garden a bit; it is 25'x40'. We are planting bush beans, field peas (purple hulls), tomatoes, okra, red/orange/yellow/green bell peppers, tabasco peppers, cukes, squash, zucchini, collards, spaghetti squash, broccoli, cabbage, canteloupes, watermelon, pumpkins, and corn. i also do common herbs and lots of flowers. i plan to do a LOT of canning/freezing this summer.
If anyone has a great salsa recipe, I'd love to have it!!!
