What have you got growing in your vegetable patch?

My rhubarb is putting on some decent growth, and my chives are poking up as well. Otherwise, not a lot is going on in the open areas. What about your plot, and where are you located?

My garden, small as it is, is going quite well! I'm still trying to learn what grows in Florida, as I am originally a Jersey girl. So far I've got cilantro, lettuce, chives, oregano, parsley, catnip (for my feline 'children') and basil. Once I am feeling more confident I will add more, but not sure what to add. Strawberries would be nice. I did plant a small tangerine tree as well and it is full of buds!

I would love a tangerine tree. I have a little Calemodium lemon, but it is more ornamental then anything.

we have an older lime tree (there when we bought the house) but it still hasn't produced any fruit; I don't know what's going on with it. The tangerine tree we bought at 1/2 price (it was sickly) but my landscaping friend said we could save it. Citrus trees are expensive and I have a small budget at the moment! So, fingers crossed, it will survive.

Don't you need special citrus fertilizer? Are you getting it to flower?

I live in Western New York and its still too cold and crappy to get our gardens started but come May we'll be getting it going....I'll be planting my usual cucumbers, various types of peppers, carrots, lettuce, roma and cherry tomatos, numerous herbs and so on and I'd like to give strawberries and grapes a try as well actually...

I find strawberries really easy, and once you get the hang of pruning them, grapes are, too!

My children and I are going to start a vegetable patch this spring, as soon as we have a warm day we are going to turn the earth to get it prepared. We are planning to grow potatoes, lettuce, tomatoes, peas, corn, bell peppers, carrots, and cucumbers. Not only will we be growing our own food we will be documenting the process, I home school my children so it will be a science experiment also.

I live in Kentucky. We had three days of 70 degree weather. So, I got out and tilled up our big garden. I put down fertilizer and lime and worked it in. I wanted to get a couple things in the ground before it rained the next day. I planted cabbage and yellow onions. I plan on planting silver queen corn, white potatoes, beefmaster tomatoes, bell peppers, pumpkin, watermellon, canaloupe, zunchini, cucumbers, and green beans. I also have grape vines and strawberries as well as rhubarb. Told you I had a big garden! lol Now it is cold again and rainy, oh well.

I live in the US middle Tennessee, My yard is bare of anything much as we just bought our home last April. But at some point probably next year I am going to have a small Vegetable patch as you call it with tomatoes and Herbs for cooking. Not to much space alotted for that because I have grander plans for my back yard. My I do love fresh rhubarb!!

My garden is still under a pile of snow. :( It's melting, though, so it won't be too long!! I have a small strawberry patch somewhere under there, and am really looking forward to expanding it. I've got some other veggies started in my little hotbox here in thehouse. Tomatoes, onions, peppers, and eggplants. I can't wait until the weather turns nice enough to work up the garden and plant/harvest. It's my favorite part of summer. :)

Not much- I have some scraggily old leeks that should have been pulled in February, and some leftover potatoes we didn't get out when we should have. I just got some celeriac seeds though and will have to get them started.

I live in Iowa and not planting season yet. I have raspberries on one end of my garden. I also like to plant potatoes, onions, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, cabbage and sweet corn. Love to eat fresh vegetables.
