We live in Northern California, so far this year we have planted:
tomatoes
cucumber
zucchini squash
crookneck squash

Planning to plant kale and cilantro, just haven't done it yet

We start the seeds in the garden windows in our kitchen and move them outside when they are big enough. My husband really is the gardener, I help out some but the arthritis in my knees and lower back doesn't make gardening much fun for me, plus I can't be in the sun that much so chose to walk outside for exercise more than garden.

My name is Carolyn
(Whitney is my last name, I'm a retired high school biology teacher = WHITNEYTEACHER)

I moved to Grants Pass, a small town in Southern Oregon in January, 2014.

I just planted my garden for this year. Had to stop and think about all the plants I'm growing--- some are perennial, so it's quite a lot! I've got tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, potatoes, broccoli, onions, chives, mint, thyme, cucumbers, strawberries, blackberries, daisies, jerusalem artichokes, sunflowers, and pinks. And I'm going to buy some petunias for the front porch. I love working in my garden!!!

I planted 2 rows of lettuce last Monday, then came rain and 2" of snow. It shouldn't hurt it--in fact should help. other than that, I'm waiting for the weather to warm up (it's only in the 40's) so I can plant the rest of the garden

Hello from Cayuga Ontario! We have 75 acres, mostly farm fields and some bush. Thirteen years into this gardening project and each spring it's the Amazon-school of gardening. Hack, slash and burn. One more dump truck load of mulch to spread once the weeds are pulled. Save the trees from drought. Check. Protect the perennials. Check. Now for the vegetable garden...pumpkin, gourds, corn, tomatoes, and yes, zucchini too. Make sure the pump is set up so I can water from the pond....

Nothing planted yet, but it won't be long now! emoticon
I'm not sure how big i'm going to put my garden this year.
I'll plant what I usually plant :potatoes(red+white), tomatoes(last year I planted heirloom varieties+roma,yellow pear,cherry), carrots,beans(yellow,green,purple),leeks,o
nions,kale,spinach,lettuce,peas,squash
,pumpkins,beets.
I also do a herb garden right besides my front door.
And I have blueberry plants, rhubarb,raspberries and asparagus + 2 pear trees.
I'm not sure if I'll plant strawberries or not this year.
Every year, I try a different vegetable in my garden-not sure what it will be this year.
I know it's a lot of work,but totally worth it when it comes to eating! emoticon

I have herbs, blueberries, a mulberry, and a pear tree.
Lots of grass and weeds that have to be tamed, we've had a lot of rain so I'm behind in my work.

My husband and I love to garden, but in our Colorado drought we don't even try. For that matter, we were having snowstorms less than a week ago - it's going to be June before we can even think of planting anything, and then the growing season would be over around the first of September.

Being in MN. and still having snow, no one has done any outdoor gardening yet. I used to grow our foods but have turned the garden into a perennial garden. We still plant tomatoes for our personal use.

I have tomatoes growing in my garden window that need to be planted outside, hoping to get that done tomorrow. Have planted snapdragons, stock and some other flowers. Glad that summer weather has finally arrived. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Dandelions - already!?
At the same time as my beautiful daffodils.
And my plants that try to be hyacinths - just 1 pair of leaves, so far.

I haven't planted anything yet, but will be getting in all my herbs this week. I haven't done any food growing, but think I'm going to try tomatoes and peppers in containers this year.

I love to garden, but have to do it for only about an hour a day because of my back and hips. I planted green beans, peas, and carrots and have a hanging strawberry plant. I'm also planning on getting a Roma tomato plant and a cherry tomato plant. Also have four knockout rose bushes and lots of perennials and four potted planters filled with pink, white and purple annuals. The only time I count it as exercise is when I'm weeding the whole time or pruning the rose bushes the entire hour. Otherwise, it's just moving and getting some fresh air!

I used to and loved it and now miss gardening so much. But now live in a senior apartment.
Rules are no outdoor plants not even hanging.........bummer :(

I was wondering who uses gardening as an outdoor workout, food source, and is planning on growing some healthy choices this new season. Do you garden and what's growing? emoticon

I am growing:
roma tomatoes
patio tomatoes
Marigold tomatoes
Green peppers
chili peppers
habaneros peppers
bush cucumbers
bush green beans
cherry sweet tomatoes
butter nut squash
yellow summer squash (straight neck)
Zucchini squash
blackberries

And to brighten it up for butterflies and hummingbirds- zinnias and verbena
