Over the weekend, we ordered loads of veggie plants. The plants will be divided amongst 3 families.
On our growing list for this summer so far is:
Jelly Bean Hybrid Tomatoes
Red Sweet Peppers
Green Bell Peppers
Italian Roma Bush Beans (Or as my husband likes to call them "fat green beans")-(from seed).
Radishes (from seed)
Zucchini (from seed)
Brussels Sprouts (from seed)
We might do more herbs too. I wanted to do the mini pumpkins to use for decor around my house in the fall, but they take up too much space :(
I cant wait for the plants to arrive and for the weather to get warmer so they will grow and I can start enjoying fresh veggies and start my canning!
I love to can. I started last summer, and made a few recipes I loved and enjoyed. These few recipes will be made again this summer, as well as new ones I have come across recently.
Canning is especially great for Christmas gifts. Last year I made little food baskets (bought peach baskets for .25 each last summer!) and I filled them with baked goods and of course my canned items.
We may be adding more plants to the garden, we aren't sure yet. I look forward to posting about the garden and my canning items for this summer!
