    Question New veggies anyone?

    I want to try some new veggies this year in my garden. Turnips and parsnips for sure. We have flea beatles though that come off the canola crops so I'm not sure how successful I will be.

    I, too, was wondering who else would be groowing new veggies.

    I am thinking about trying tepary beans. They are not native to the area, so it is truly an experiment, but they have as much (or more) protein as soybeans do. They are typically grown in the Southwest, but I found an organic source for them, so I thought I could just give them a try.

    I'm still planning, though, so I may plan some other new veggies, as well. Perhaps radishes.

    Um... Hmmm.... I still need to go through my seeds to see what I'm going to grow this year.

    I know I'm trying several new varieties of most veggies I usually grow. Oh, I know. I'm going to find some Jerusalem artichoke this year! And ginger and horse radish. I still need to find/order some of each but I'm excited and can't wait to try my hand at growing them!

    I'm growing japanese eggplant for the first time this year. I'm also growing food for my chooks for the first time - amaranth and chokos. And I'm growing my nectarine tree as an espalier, so that will be interesting to see how it goes.

    I am hoping that we will have time for a garden this year We didn't do anything last year.

    I'd love to do tomatoes, cukes, zuchinni, and sprouts (for Dave)

    I currently have garlic growing for the first time. This spring I'm going to buy 3 or 4 broccoli starts. If it goes well, I'll plant a large fall crop. We easily eat a pound of broccoli a week.

    I didn't do a garden last year because we thought we would be moving in the middle of summer

    This year I want to do:
    Tomatoes
    zucchini
    beets
    potatoes
    beans

    I'd also love to do some thyme, basil, and garlic.
