What’s your Favorite Vegetable?

by zesty on May 11, 2011 · 13 comments

Hey there!  I am organizing my garden plans and have a simple question for ya.  What is your favorite vegetable to have out of the garden?  Is it yellow beans, fresh beets, maybe yummy tomatoes or how about a crisp cucumber.

So far I picked up some seeds to get ready however the weather has been lousy and very cold.  I am hoping to get the ground prepped in the next week or so.  Here is a list of the seeds we picked up so far.  Let me know your thoughts and if you have any additions you think we should get.

  • Beets
  • Carrots
  • Lettuce
  • Carrots
  • Yellow Beans
  • Sunflowers
  • Mint
  • Rosemary
  • Basil
  • Watermelon
  • Cousa
  • Peas
  • Cilantro
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumber

I also picked up a growing guide…. which I am surely going to need.  If you have any garden tips I would love to hear them.  Send me an email or leave them in the comments.  Have a great Wednesday and I will talk to you Friday.

Take care

Square Foot Gardening is an excellent book. http://www.squarefootgardening.com
I always plant zucchini for two reasons. One the plant is gorgeous and it mass produces zucchini. Just make sure to plant at least two plants. Parsley and thyme are also great to plant. I have had luck growing garlic and honeydew melons too. This year I am going to grow green onions for my mom. My winter crop included cabbage and celery this year. Have fun!

I don’t garden myself, but remembering my mother’s and grandmother’s gardens, rhubarb and dill are missing from the above list. Also corn and possibly pumpkin.

Yes, dill is an herb, and rhubarb and pumpkin are not truly veggies… but they’re what I see in the garden in my mind’s eye. :-)

How about okra and eggplant?


4 zesty

Maybe we will try eggplant… good thought. Not a lot of okra lovers in the house :)

chives! will make any potato you eat this summer infinitely better!

Here in Georgia with the sunny days and warm nights I grow bumper crops of peppers. By Sept-Oct I have so many I can’t give them away. Which makes me mad because when Feb. rolls around I have to buy them at the market.

Gosh I love rhubarb… had never had luck in growing it though.
We always put in about 3 rows of yellow beans as they are our fav…..
We will also line the back of the rows w (KONG) sunflowers… I think you can only
get them at Vessey Seeds. They are very tall beautiful… you have to get some. … Happy planting… with all this rain it will be nice to see some sun soon!

Kari – We did get some sunflowers!

Can’t beat ripe tomatoes from the garden, they freeze really well – just wash, dry and freeze and add to sauces when needed. Tell me you aren’t growing them from seed!
Do you like chard? You can buy a type that keeps growing after you cut it for a seasonal supply – can get lettuce like that too.
Sounds like gardening weather to this weekend.


10 zesty

Bev – no we are not growing them from seed…. we will just buy them already started.

I have been gardening for a few years and this year I am changing it up a little. My gardens theme is colors. I am growing different colored tomatoes, radishes, squash, beans, carrots, lettuce, beets, eggplant, and tamatilloes. Your garden sounds like it is going to be great! In addition I am growing lemon cucumber.

Well my favorite veggies are winter squash (spaghetti & butternut) as well as spinach… but I am not sure those are in season! I do love TEXAS Scallions too though (they’re like onions but I dunno, just better, ha ha).

Capsicum! Not only is it my favorite vegetable, they look so pretty in a garden. And they go with everything. The best part? They can be planted in different colors! How cool is that? And the smell of stir fried veggies without that capsicum tinge is just wrong, somehow. Good luck with your gardens. :)
