My 2014 garden plan, part 1

Believe it or not, I’ve actually made some progress this week in trying to decide what to grow this coming spring and summer! I’ll be moving to my fiance’s house, where I’ll have plenty of space. But along with that space comes a LOT of garden chores to be done, mostly weeding, and creating new, fresh garden beds. So, my ambitions will probably be tempered a bit, at least for this first year there. The following is what I plan on growing, likely in large fabric containers:

Tomatoes:

Blue Jade corn (heirloom; dwarf, good for containers and small spaces)

Peppers:

  • Jalapeno
  • Bull Nose Bell (heirloom grown by Thomas Jefferson at Monticello)

Squash:

  • Cavili zucchini (self-fertile; sets fruit without pollination)
  • Patio Star summer squash (compact, open habit; good for containers)
  • SuperPik yellow squash (high yields)
  • Winter luxury pumpkin (superior flavor and texture, good for pies/canning)

Beans:

  • Blue Lake
  • Kentucky Wonder

Black Beauty Eggplant

Lettuce:

  • Black Seeded Simpson
  • Parris Island Romaine

Okra:

Herbs:

  • Basil ‘Bam’ (does not bolt, continues to put out new leaves until frost)
  • Cilantro
  • Rosemary
  • Oregano
  • Thyme
