I’ve been giving a lot of thought to what I would like to do in the garden this year. I really try very hard not to put too much of the gardening onto Brian since his schedule is so crazy, but there are just some things that I have to have his help with – such as turning & tilling the garden. Once that is done, I can take care of most of the rest of it, especially with the help of the kids.
With that being said, here are some of the things that I would like to plant this year. Some of these, I’ve planted before, some are new to me. I’m really wanting to expand what we grow ourselves, especially in light of the major drought in California. I’m afraid that groceries are going to really go up & they are going to become harder and harder to afford.
What I would like to grow this year:
- bell peppers
- green beans
- black beans
- pinto beans
- red beans
- various herbs
I will probably come back from time to time and add to this list as I think of a few other items I would like to plant. It will also depend on when we finally get the garden area turned & tilled.
I would also like to get some strawberries planted again this year maybe a couple of apple trees before the cold weather moves back in this fall. We shall see.
