This year's garden

We always plant our "reliables" plus a few new things that we try...last year was Jeruselum Artichokes and white sweet potatoes.

Not sure what our new things will be this year, but our regular items include:

tomatoes (lots and lots), peppers, winter and summer squash, white potatoes, sweet potatoes, garlic, green peas, cabbage, and sunflowers and peanuts for the critters.

This year I'm going to give up on onions, they just rarely do well enough to make the effort worthwhile. They taste great, but production is never very good. I gave up on sweet corn a few years ago, but may try one last time this year...dunno.

Our main vegetable garden is about 75' x 300' so I get lots of room for experimenting.
