This year, I took after my brother and put a garden in. We planted a million things and it was so fun watching it all grow! I can't believe so many things come from tiny, little seeds.
My cucumbers and yellow squash went crazy. I need to remember to plant way more yellow squash next year. It was delicious!
We planted blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. No berries this year. We will see if they produce anything next year.
I planted my watermelons and cantaloupes a few weeks too late. I need to remember to start them and corn earlier. Still, what a cute little watermelon.
I can also start my pumpkins earlier. They were ready on time though, and it was so fun to grab them out of the garden instead of buying them.
We planted black and green beans. They also can be planted earlier than what I did.
This is just one of our four boxes.
This little plant is an extra potato. We planted six red potatoes and six regular potatoes. They both grew like crazy and produced a ton. Then, we left some in the ground, and they came back. Potatoes grow VERY well here. I want to move them out of the boxes next year though, and plant them in potato towers.
This is my little corn - needed to start a month earlier.
These are onions. I left them in the ground and they will come again next year. I'm hoping they will be bigger. They never produced a huge onion. So we will see what next year brings.
Our carrots were CRAZY! They were insanely huge.
We planted broccoli and needed to cut it more often for sure.
We planted lots of lettuce. Next year, I need to stagger plant the lettuce so it comes at different times instead of all at once. Romaine and iceberg both did well.
We planted several peppers. We started their seeds inside, and then took the plants outside. They went into shock right away. This one came back and produced this little pepper. Next year we will start them in bigger pots and keep them inside longer I think.
These were brussel sprouts but the aphids attacked, and even though you can take soapy water and get it all off - it grossed me out.
I planted a bunch of herbs - cilantro, basil, thyme, chives and oregano. I think I won't plant any herbs next year because I didn't use them very much. If I want to use them more, I'll plant them in the Aerogarden inside. If I do any herbs, it would be cilantro.
We planted strawberry seeds but they never came up, so then we planted starters. After that, they did well and were delicious!
We planted six tomato seeds (2 roma, 2 cherry, and 2 beefmasters) and should have done just one or two total. We had tomatoes galore!
We planted an artichoke. It won't produce for three years, but it will be cool when it does!
We planted four asparagus plants. They were so weird! They would come up at different times, and just appear one day and be HUGE.
Our apple tree is still producing fruits. I can't wait until we add more fruit trees!
And the garden in whole!
I'm so excited to plant again next year. It is so fun!
