We're busy planting here at Two By Two Farm. We decided on two gardens for vegetables, the first of which was planted late last week, and the second of which will be planted today/tomorrow.
So, what are we growing this year ?
Lettuce (Buttercrunch and Blackseeded Simpson)
Spinach (Bloomsdale Long Standing)
Tomatoes (Marglobe, Cherry, Roma, Krim)
Peppers (yellow purple and red bell peppers, and 1 jalapeno)
Squash (yellow, zucchini, spaghetti, scallop, butternut, and acorn)
Corn (silver queen)
GreenBeans (bush variety)
Herbs - lavender, parsley, basil, oregano, chives
Watermelons (icebox size and Dixie Queen)
And pumpkins -- the small "pie" type, and some mammoth pumpkin seeds that promise a 200-300 pound pumpkin.
We have seen sooooo many rabbits here that we're concerned we'll be battling them for our harvests. So any recommendations on keeping the rabbits from devouring our gardens would be appreciated (we've already decided that next year we will fence the gardens for sure).
What's in YOUR garden ?
