This year I'm putting in strawberries, sweet onions, pickling cucumbers, slicing cucumbers, black beans, bush beans (green), pole beans(green), limas, bell peppers, cayenne peppers, jalapeno peppers, tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes, peas, broccoli, squash - yellow and butternut, zucchini, cantaloupe, herbs (annuals and perennials), okra, carrots, radishes, red leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce, iceberg lettuce and mesclun. My garden is about 1500 square feet. In other areas of the yard I will have birdhouse gourds, pumpkins and watermelons.
