Veggie Garden...

CRAZY gorgeous weather... late night trip to home depot, and my dad visiting = A VEGGIE GARDEN!!!

I am soooo super excited! My very VERY VERY FIRST Veggie Garden! The hubster picked up the wood and Dad is driving down from Jersey and building me a gardening box! My two favorite guys!

Since the hubster works an insane amount, my dad generously agreed to come for a visit, AND assemble the garden! Who cares if I had to use Charlotte as bait, right...lol!?!? We have 16, 8 foot railroad ties... so that should build a decent sized garden(I think)!

SOOOOO bloggers... what shall I PLANT? Mind you I am a gardener, a FLOWER gardener- but I have NO CLUE with regards to veggies! Any ADVICE would be greatly appreciated!

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. That veggie pic is so cute! As for veggie garden (I'm not one either) but I vote for cherry tomatoes!

  2. I'm trying my hand at veggies for the first time this year and decided to plant what we eat most...variety of berries, 2 kinds of tomatoes, carrots, peas, beans, broccoli, and a handful of herbs (in individual pots). May through in some sweet potatoes for good measure :)

  3. I love gardening! It's so therapeutic and rewarding! I started last year. Peppers and tomatoes are pretty easy to grow. I also tried broccoli, lettuce and arugula. Caterpillars love to eat those leafy veggies especially broccoli leaves, so make sure you have your pests under control! I also plant a bunch of herbs. At the end of the season when your plants start to dry, don't forget to save your seeds for next year! Have fun and Good luck!

  4. I think Zucchini(sp?) and squash sound good to me. I love fresh veggies!

  5. Last year was our first! Broccoli (agree, caterpillar ISSUES), Zucchini & Squash and tomatoes will HOG space - TOTALLY cage your tomatoes from the start too. jalapenos, bell peppers and hot peppers do well in just a pot to save garden room...herbs grow fab - just don't overcrowd - that's my 2 cents from year one... year two is maturing in a rolling greenhouse cart from Lowes!
