    I am so proud I did it all by myself, planted onions and peas today, never had much a garden before, I am just a city girl gone country or redneck as my family puts it. so what else can i plant now in pennsylvania. my garden space is 17 feet by 7 feet. unemployed for the summer so I have way to much time on my hands.

    You're so lucky! I've always wanted to plant a garden, but I really don't have much room here. Enjoy!!! [​IMG]

    yay! I'm so excited for you! You'll be hooked in no time at all! For crops you can toss in now in the cooler season, you could always do radishes, carrots, lettuce, spinach, etc...then when those harvest, you will be able to use that space for other crops as well.

    Aaaahhh... gardening. Next to chickens, the most therapeutic thing on Earth. [​IMG] Ever heard of Square Foot Gardening? It's insanely awesome, allowing you to grow a LOT in a very little space. Head to a library and check out the book - it is SO worth a short trip.

    Quote:I just planted today too. I planted onions, lettuce, spinach, broccili, carrots, radishes and sometimes this week I need to go buy seed potatoes. Potatoes get planted when the daffodils bloom and the dandelions start to grow. I live in Indiana.

    It all depends on how much light your garden gets.
