    Well, I don't know about you guys, but I just got done planting over 100 funflowers. Whew, now my back hurts! [​IMG]

    Soon I'll be planting some tomatos and beans.

    Curious to know what you guys have been planting for your gardens!

    Let see, I put in lots of flowers in the flower beds. I love flowers. We built raised beds this year and we planted potatoes, onions, sugar peas, tomatoes, carrots, green beans, purple beans and yellow beans, jalopene (sp) peppers, red hot chili peppers, bell peppers, okra, cucumbers, zucchini and yellow squash. I also planted early honeydew but don't think I will have much luck with it.

    Yeah, check out the easygarden.com. There's a whole thread on what people are planting!

    Well, you're lucky you live in a warm place! I just planted the tomatoes out and it's a toasty 52F outside and all white/grey skies. The sweetest corn doesn't grow here and if we were lucky, we'd get golf ball sized short season watermelons that would be frozen before the flower falls off! LOL

    Summers always late... if it ever gets here, and winter is always early. Snow peas anyone?

    I kept it simple and distilled summer to it's purest essence: Corn, beans, tomatoes, watermelons. [​IMG]

    I've given up trying to grow veggies in the ground - the deer eat everything. So, this year I only planted tomatoes and peppers in self-watering containers on the deck. Those are my "must haves".
