What will you plant in your garden this spring ?

I am thinking about what I am going to plant this year in my garden, & I was wondering what others here plant.
This year we will plant: tomatoes( beef steak & cherry tomatoes), zuccinni squash,butternut squash, carrotts, corn, pumpkins, green peppers, & my garlic is already in.
So what's in your garden this year ?

star I have just a small yard

I plant tomatoes, green peppers, kale, parsley, chives and lettuce. Also sunflowers around the edge. The back yard is in the sun a good part of the day, so all these things do great.
I used to do a garden at the community gardens, but got tired of having others reap what I worked so hard at to grow. I do herbs in my kitchen window (basil, mint, thyme and rosemary)

I was going to ask the same question! I am getting so antsy to get out in the garden!
We will plant: lettuce (mixed leaf & romaine), radish, carrots, kohlrabi, green onions, sugar peas, yukon gold potatoes, red onion, white or yellow onion, sweet corn (we're going to try Gotta Have It hybrid this year), big bertha bell peppers,
hot peppers: jalapeno, chiltepin, cayenne, peter, & pequin. I have all of those pepper seeds planted in our basement hoping they will come up soon...I'm "patiently waiting"! We will plant Big Boy, (or Better Boys) Roma & Beefmaster tomatoes for sure & I have tomato seeds started in my basement:
Mortgage Lifter
Hillbilly
Cherokee Purple
SunSugar (yellow cherry maters)
Heinz &
Yellow Brimmer

Tomato seeds planted, but not yet sprouting:
Yellow Brandywine &
Florida Pink

The perenials in our gaden are rhubarb & asparagus. Mom plants 2 rows of marigolds at the front of our garden every year ~ supposed to keep bugs away!

We do our gardening at my parents house. They have had a large garden in their back yard since...gosh before my 36 years & now they are getting older & don't want to hassel with it. They were going to plant 1/2 of it in grass seed & we didn't want to see that happen, so my hubby & I took over the garden. We plant it & take care of it, but if they feel like they want to go out there & pull weeds, or pick veggies, it is there for them to do. It works out really nice. Of course anything we plant, they are more than welcome to eat or preserve! There is always plenty to go around! Now I'm REALLY Excited!

Holiday sounds like you really have a great big garden, that's nice that you took it over for your parents. I know D/H & I love working in the garden together every year.

strawberries are really easy.. just give it a try...they only need water and when the berries appear just put some straw around the plants that the berries dont have direct contact with the ground... let them grow and enjoy.. last year I could go almost every evening and pick some ...

Mmm fresh strawberries - yum. I put in a few tomatoes and pepper planys and have sown seeds in large pots for lettuce (works well). But our yard has sooo many flower beds that I just don't have the room for that many vegies. However as I mentioned in another post, I have a fab herb garden.
