New Garden Plan
Topic: How Does Your Garden Grow?

I have FINALLY admitted the fact that I cannot grow certain produce. One is radishes - undeveloped roots, woody, dry and hot. No change of soil, seed variety, weather, planting date... has had any effect in the 10 years I have been growing. I faithfully plant every year, trying some tweak or another... failure every time. So I decided to BUY my radishes and use the pot to grow something else this year.

I have likewise dropped turnips from the plan for the same reason. 

Then, due to some restrictions of diet, I am eliminating spinach and lettuce from my garden which left me with several barrels extra. I decided to double up on the things we really like that do grow well - beets, cucumbers, green onions - and split the two varieties of peppers into their own barrels.

Out in the big bed we have eliminated potatoes and are expanding the squash. Last year we had only acorn, delicata and yellow crookneck. This year we are trading the acorn for butternut and adding zucchini and patty pan (scallop). I hope to process and freeze a lot of the patty pan like we did the fried green tomatoes last year.

The bed for the corn remains the same.

Here is the plan for the 2015 garden:

I'm hoping for a good yield and plan to preserve (freeze) a lot like I did last year.

It's fun to have a gardening 'buddy' (Mom) - and one who helps eat up the produce.
