    I am planning on having a garden, hoppefully soon, I like to have a little bit of everything the land can give me in my little corner of the word, broccoli, peppers, onions, lettuce, etc.

    I was wondering who is growing what in this forum.

    I am sure theres got to be some avid gardeners in here, am I right?

    I helped my grandpa plant a variety of greens this year for his fall garden. Darn bugs got to some of them, and the water washed away some others, but there's still plenty for them to eat.

    I'm gonna plant a spring garden next year. I'm gonna plant okra, cayenne peppers, banana peppers, and other things I haven't thought of yet. My brother says I should plant Habaneros, but those things are too hot for me to eat. I want to try to plant some things that my neighbor doesn't plant; he usually shares his produce with us, so I'd like to have something different, and share it with him.

    BTW, there is a gardening section on the BOC; it's just not as well traveled lately:

    allright acatfisherman and a gardener. Great post. I grow the usual corn, squash, tomatoes. Right now getting ready to dig some sweet potatoes. Here in the imperial valley we can grow all year long and fish most of it too. Good to hear from a gardener. Tks

    Good to see a few gardners out here.

    Cattrick1 I am in Yuma so we basically have the same weather, what are you growing now?

    I have some peppers and I just killed some broccolli plants but that was just round 1, I am coming back for round 2.:wink:

    I enjoy groing peppers (hot ones), tomato, lettuce, and beans. Nothing like a good 'ol mater sandwich during the summer. Also try mixing in those home grown canned maters in some macaroni.

    I didnt grow anything this year as we bought a new house and moved. But I am getting things ready for spring. I will plant a small area this first year just 20feet x26feet should give me enough of what I want.

    It must be nice to grow a winter garden. Under a foot of snow up here in Michigan that wouldn't work too well. That is where the Aerogarden comes in handy. Expensive, but worth it if you are a gardener and would rather grow more than house plants in the winter months up north...

    I just set up the Aerogarden for my mother, hopefully I get some pics of the cherry tomato progress in the Aerogarden thread soon. Right now it looks a little bit boring, just non-sprouted pods in a hydroponic Aerogarden like the pic I posted before in that thread.
