Tomatoes, of course. Garlic, green peas, potatoes, asparagus, green beans, corn, lettuce, onions, yellow squash, couple of kinds of hot peppers, beets, carrots, green peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, fava beans (yuck!) for my lady. Cucumbers, cantaloupe, water melon, pumpkins. A few butter beans (limas) for a taste of fresh limas. Kale and mustard for greens.

The wife is planting parsley, chives, and basil.

But I'm not orangello near mine.

Got seeds planted for my garden this season. Have to plant seeds in peat pots this early in NE Ohio. Leave the trays out during the day and bring them in at night until last few days.
Working on Snow Peas, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, and Assorted Chile Peppers. In another week or so, I will transplant the seedlings into my raised bed gardens and Earth boxes. My development was built on an old horse farm. My yard is clay. Sucks to dig in so I put in the raised beds and brought in garden soil.

Lon- the raised beds are nice. You doing the "Square foot gardening" thing? we did that when living in Colorado- limited room, but you can grow a LOT of stuff if you plan it.

Gotta admit, the beds were here when we got here, but I've always been a fan of raised beds. Not familiar with the "square foot gardening" thing, though. What is it?

The nice thing, too, is that each bed is irrigated with it's own hose bib with soaker hoses. Makes it so easy to water. Have composting bins right next door, too, but even though it's the right thing to do, it takes a lot of discipline and is a pretty big PIA.

WOC, we do about a half acre for the veggies- but if things turn real crappy, can easily double that, plus do another acre of just potatoes (hey- the Irish LIVED on them!) Also grapes, blackberrys, raspberries, gooseberries, apples, pears, peaches.

Lon, check out one of these- http://www.amazon.com/Square-Foot-Gardening-Garden-Space/dp/1579548563/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1304079973&sr=1-2

Concept is you plan what you will plant in each square foot- and you plant each seed deliberately, not in rows or scattering. You might have one tomato plant in a 1x1, surrounded by 12 onions, or 4 dozen radishes. Plant a high item, and a low item- and you never step on where you are growing plants. we found we could grow cukes vertically by planting near a board fence that had some wire mesh fence hanging from it.

My Neighbour was out fixing his Craftsman riding lawnmore...He hit a stump and broke the cast-aluminum part that holds the blade on one side...Anyway..It broke a spring also...When he when't to get the part from Sears they said they don't make them anymore...The riding tractor is only 13 years old..He said he got it in 1998...and they don't make parts for something that is only 13 years old???.....I guess your supost-to-throw away everything now days...Who's got $$$Money to do that???...He's going to look on the inter-net and see if he can find something....Everything is throw-away..nowdays....
