I've still got a foot of snow in my garden! I won't even be able to till until early June. But Yukon Gold potatoes, sweet peas, carrots, and that should do it for me. We get long daylight hours through the summer, so stuff does grow. It's just such a late start and early finish in southcentral AK.

I am just starting on my garden for this year, since we may still have some frost before summer gets here. I am planning to grow most of the same things I grew last year. Those items were:

Tomatoes (several varieties)
Yellow squash
Zucchini
Peppers (several varieties)
Cantaloupe
Corn
Eggplant
Lettuce
Misc. Herbs

In addition to those things, I am planning to grow several varieties of bush beans, peas, cucumbers, and whatever else comes to mind. I don't have a whole lot of space for my garden, so many of these things will be grown in containers, which worked pretty well for me last year.

Default My gardens 2007

I just started my plants inside this week.
My garden will have calorabi, sweet peppers, pickle cucumbers, lettuce and snow peas for peas in the pod. I also have a herb garden and lots of flowers. We finally hit 50 degrees today.

Me too - not planting anything this year. I'm trying to decide which ones of my plants to bring with me. Probably only a start of the swamp sunflowers. Love em, love em.

We will do tomatoes, cuks and peppers. I might try lettuce this year because the stuff at the grocery store is AWFUL. We have a lot of rabbits though so I don't know how well that will go over. We have another 2 months before we can plant outside though. We might get out early this year though, it was 68 yesterday and supposed to be in the low to mid 70's for the next few days.

Catknap, you have a beautiful garden! It's just lovely.

If you've got critters eating your tomatoes, and if you have a pet, try scattering some of the pet's fur around the tomatoes. The rabbits and squirrels have been put off a little by all the cat fur I spread around.

Keeps the fur out of my lungs, too!

I'm going to try a suggestion I read last season and plant muskmelons in the compost heap. That may prompt me to keep the compost moist ... LOL.
