Another (unrelated) post I read today had me trying to list all the things I am currently growing in my veggie garden. I thought it would be interesting to hear what everyone grows and has success (and failures) with. I know many of you grow things specifically for your flock and most everyone has a compost pile. For example, I am growing 3 varieties of green beans this year in an attempt to find one that 1) the rabbits won't eat and 2) tolerates the heat and 3)is prolific and 4) I can save seeds from to use next year. It sure would have saved me a lot of time and money if I'd have been able to draw from someone else's experience in the first place. Here's the veggies I have planted this year: sweet corn, peas, carrots-(no luck on this last year), cukes, okra- (found the one I'm staying with finally!), kidney beans, black eyed peas, various tomatoes-(hunting for the perfect slicer and cherry variety), various peppers - bells & hot, brussels sprouts, asparagus, cabbage, cantaloupe, watermelon, zuccinni squash, summer squash, acorn squash, green beans-(rabbits wouldn't touch the yard long variety, but they ate everything else!!), onions, shallots, strawberries, leeks, spinach Herbs: basils, oregano, marjoram, tons of mints, chives-garlic and onion, garlic, dill, rosemary, catnip, cilantro Other: aloe vera-(good for just about everything!!), nasturtiums, mammoth sunflowers (for seeds) We also have fruit trees/vines: peaches, fig, kiwi, orange, lemon, lime, 3 varieties of grapes Hope to start/try: bananas, apples, lettuces, avacado, broccoli, cauliflower we also plan to start coastal on a few acres to bale for the horses and maybe to sell some. I'm in zone 9- so if anyone has any tips on good varieties, please share!!
