I don’t think anyone can argue homegrown vegetables are so much better than store bought. I try to grow as much of my own food as possible, and my garden consists of 18 raised beds for my vegetables, herbs, berries, asparagus and grapes. I always go for the heirloom varieties for their superior taste, variety and hardiness. Here’s what I’ve got growing this year:
Peas–Wando (not impressed so far) and Oregon Giant snow peas (eating lots of these now).
Lettuce–Red Butterhead and Green Butterhead (flavor is okay, not as good as heirlooms) and Rouge D’Hiver
Broccoli and Cabbage (lost to cabbage loopers AGAIN)
Broccoli Rabe–goats got into my garden and totally ate this
Bush Beans–French Tavera and Provider
Soup Beans–Jacob’s Cattle
Winter Squash–Red Kuri, Musquee de Provence, Acorn
Zucchini–Costata Romanesco and Golden
Cantelope–Golden Jenny and Charentais
Cucumbers–Poona Kheera, Delikatesse, Lemon
Peppers–Aji Dulce, Marconi, California Wonder, Anaheim, Jalapeno
Tomatoes–Roma, Amish Paste, Brandywine, Early Girl, Cherokee Purple, Amy’s Sugar Gem
Eggplant–Diamond, Thai Yellow Egg, Rosa Bianca (these didn’t transplant well for some reason and I’ve lost a couple already)
Potatoes (Russian Fingerling and Red Gold)
What are you growing? Old favorites? Something new?
