    We planted in February-- and have had a lot of losses thanks to a squirrel-- apparently the garden is bird-proof but not squirrel proof. We have tons of broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, green beans are in flower, corn is about 6 inches tall... squash and melons etc. I'm growing leeks for the first time this year and they're doing well.

    I live in PA, but more north-central - not far north like Colored Egg Farmer. I've planted radishes, peas, onions, garlic, and carrots so far in the veggie garden. I planted a few sunflowers, purple coneflowers, and marigolds (all seeds) so far.

    I'm about to go out and plant some more seeds! I do have a bunch of different veggies started inside. My husband just got me a mini greenhouse (4 shelves) for our anniversary, so I'll be having tons of fun with that!

    I wish I didn't live in town, I'm a country girl at heart!

    I can't until the house sells and I move. [​IMG] I would totally fill my old pots and planters, but... Lets face it, I have no where to put them that doesn't make the house look like a crazy person lives there.

    Soooo I bought some starters including spearmint, rosemary and French lavender.

    I started English lavender, garlic chives, and peppermint from seeds.

    I desperately want to get strawberries, but I know they don't do well in pots. Anyway, it's a decent start for someone who may move at any time.

    I put potatoes in the ground in February, plus onions and leeks soon thereafter. I have a few kohlrabi and cabbage planted, plus some tomatoes and peppers started from seed.
