Do you plant a vegetable garden?

Well, do you? If so, what do you plant? I plant one each year. I have two 10 x 10 raised beds that I plant. I'm a total amateur so some things do well and some things not so much. Every year I plant cucumbers, yellow squash, zucchini, bell peppers, jalapenos, poblanos, eggplant, several types of tomatoes, green beans and a bunch of different herbs including basil, cilantro, dill, thyme, rosemary, and sage. This year I want to try cabbage and broccoli early in the season before the cabbage worms are hatched. We shall see on that one. What do you plant in your garden if you have one? Do tell!

Good thing you have mint in a pot. I have it in the ground and it spreads! I knew that when I planted it though so it's in a spot where I don't mind if it spreads.

We vary our plantings every spring, but always have tomatoes, bell peppers, green beans and peas. The peas have to be earlier than the others.

I've never tried peas though I should because I love them.

@NJChicaa I like the snow peas, you can eat the whole thing, pod and all. They are so sweet and yummy. Snap peas I think you open and just eat the peas themselves.

My husband and I do plant yearly gardens. We grow tomatoes, cucumbers and bell peppers. There were a couple of seasons when we also planted string beans. Also, for a couple of seasons we planted sun flowers for show. They were so pretty.

I planted sunflowers last year and they were growing well. Then my husband came along with his weed killer and sprayed them because he thought they were WEEDS! I was so mad.

@NJChicaa I live in a tropical country so given those fruits, in fact, my mangoes are lost on the floor because they give all year ... rot in the ground or eat the birds I have 5 mango trees and are immensely giant must have a lot of space, the only thing that does not happen in my city are grapes, peaches and apples or pears ... fruits are cold and my city is a coast ... I read that if one resembles the weather conditions can plant all

Unfortunately I don't have a garden. It is my dream to have a house with garden so that I can plant so many things, such as the fruit trees, vegetables and flowers.

No fruit trees here. Our property is too small unfortunately.

@NJChicaa But at least it is great enough to plant the vegetables and flowers.

We are harvesting butternut pumpkin and watermelon. We have a tomato plant or two and some basil but that's all. I'd like to plant more this year.

I planted butternut squash one year. Very low maintenance. I should do that again.

@NJChicaa Once it's in and growing, you just sit back and wait.

We have squash, tomatoes, eggplant and other green leafy vegetables. I would like to grow some of the plants you mentioned but I don't think they'll survive in my place because of the weather and their unavailability (seeds) in my area.
