    Default Anybody plant their vegetable gardens yet?

    I know it might be a little premature yet... but I started some container gardening a week ago..I planted Dill weed,Chives,Pepper Plants,Yellow Squash and Snow Peas so far..

    I was wanting to make a recipe that required fresh or dried Chives(a few months ago now) Walmart was selling McCormick 4oz dried for $4.50..I couldn't believe it!!! So at that moment I decided that I would grow my own and use the dehydrator to preserve my all of my Herbs..Unbelievable how expensive herbs cost and how little it cost to grow your own..

    I started some of my vegetable seeds indoors yesterday. This is my first attempt at gardening.

    I started everything (except the berries) from seeds several weeks ago and planted them in the garden last week. I have:

    - tomatoes (organic)
    - bell peppers (organic)
    - basil (organic)
    - sweet/snap peas
    - zucchini
    - cucumbers
    - strawberries
    - blueberries

    The garden is in a townhouse backyard but there is plenty of room for all those. Can't wait for harvest time, I already have 5 teeny tiny tomatoes and a few strawberries.

    I have some seeds going inside, tomatoes mostly. I'm waiting for a couple more weeks to do my seed mats of more tomatoes, carrots, radishes, and lettuce. I also have a blueberry bush, but I don't know if it will produce this year. The blackberry bushes are looking good, spreading all over the fence, which I just love

    I had lettuce and spinach seeds and 18 potatoe starters planted before the big chill that Baltimore had a few weeks ago. No sign of the spinach and only 5 potato plants have popped up. The lettuce is doing nicely though.

    I still plan to put in some brocoli, tomatoes, peas, greenbeans and either carrots or onions....and a spaghetti squash.

    My sister has hers going (which is one i help out with - she deffinately does most of the work though). Tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, corn, artichokes, squash, zuchinni(sp), eggplant, herbs, strawberries, and I think greenbeans are already planted. We've been clearing a spot for blackberry, blueberry,and grape vines.

    I just started some potted plants this weekend. I wish I could have full garden but there's just no where to put it. So far I've planted two types of tomatoes and then some green peppers. What are some other plants that will grow okay in containers?

    I think many veggies grow well in containers -- but I'm no expert. I've done strawberries before, they came out great. According to http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/e...container.html "Vegetables which are ideally suited for growing in containers include tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, green onions, beans, lettuce, squash, radishes and parsley. Pole beans and cucumbers also do well in this type of garden, but they do require considerably more space because of their vining growth habit."

    We haven't got them in the ground yet, we wait for the May 2/4 weekend. The risk of frost is gone by then, unless some freak storm happens.

    I started some seeds indoors today! Oregano, strawberries, lavendar and daisies. This is my first attempt at real gardening ( besides buying them grown and planting in my garden!)

    I am also going to try a container vegetable garden which I am starting shortly. It's tricky here in New England about when to start outdoors!
