If you cover sunflower head with cheesecloth to keep the birds out this may work for you. My garden is 75 x35 feet and I grow all kinds of vegetables,but celery. Planted it one year and it was a waste of time. I plant the leek sets and love making leek and potatoe soup during the winter. Pray for a good garden year.

We have a garden that is 50' x 18' and its just about time to till and plant. I have my seeds started to be ready for the big day. This year - carrots (tri color mix), snow peas, cabbage, broccoli, swiss chard for early planting. For summer - tomatos (cherokee red and romas) Green and banana peppers, summer squash, winter squash (2 kinds), green beans, cucumbers, and some herbs. And of course have to have my mammoth sunflowers in the background. So excited to watch them grow. We can and dehydrate what we can't eat fresh.
We are ever so stronger than we think.

Here in Australia we have just finished Summer so are still in the growing season. I have tomatoes (heirloom and normal) Swiss Chard, Beetroot, Spaghetti squash, Beans, Pumpkins, Cucumbers, Jerusalem Artichokes and Potatoes.
We have already picked our crop of Carrots and are gearing up to plant Broad (Fava) beans, Parsnips and perhaps a couple of Zucchini seeds.
We are lucky to have wild Blackberries growing here so I'm picking a small amount each day and freezing them until I figure out what I want to do with them this year.
I'd love to grow Strawberries but we have something called a Harlequin Bug here and the juveniles play havoc with Strawberries when they are on the ground. I'm thinking of trying a hanging garden made out of guttering that can hang from the rafter of the back verandah, haven't done it yet but I'm thinking very seriously about it.
Here's a link to the hanging garden I am talking about.
Hi Corinna. I have my berries in a raised bed and some grew over into a flower garden near by. Both are producing very well. I've seen strawberries in hanging pots and in pot on porches. Just make sure they get enough sun. To over winter potted berries, put in your garage after watering very well or but a bunch (and I mean a bunch) of hay or straw around and on top of the pots and put in a wind guarded area.
I've got cucumbers sprouting, as well as broccoli, lettuce and onion. I want to get eggplant simply because I hear it's a beautiful plant. Also I have a three tiered bed each with a different variety of tomatoes (cherry, roma, and Early girl)
Now, where to put my Strawberries. Can I plant them in the rose bed?
What are you going to plant this year? Me, Beans, tomatoes, a variety of squashes, onions, beets, carrots, parsley, basil,... Gosh, How boring ! the same things as Usual !!! I guess I should find something new and interesting to plant this year... Any Suggestions?
