Will only plant herbs and cherry tomatoes in containers on the deck. Will be busy planting shrubs, azaleas, and forsythias in the yard and tulips in the front garden.

Never planted the cherry tomatoes or forsythia - every thing else (except the dill plant) are doing well!

Still a few days away from Spring 2018. But I will be planting some green onions and garden beans on the deck area. I also plan to put it a few perennials in pots on the back portion of the yard. Not much else planned yet, except to get the lawn back in shape again... lol

I have not tried herbs as much. I suppose it is because I'm not sure what to do with them after they grow... lol.

I use a lot of herbs and spices in my cooking - especially basil and chives. I am diabetic so I use seasonings to "ramp" up the flavor without adding carbs! Nothing beats freshly grown herbs!

In that case I may have to try a few. I do have a couple window box style planters that I could use for those items. Thanks for the tip!

Yes, I use those types of planters myself - put in a very sunny area and water daily!

Do you grow a large garden or just enough to dine on when it is ready to pluck?

Very cool. Mine is small, but I enjoy watching it come up and of course the aromas from the flowers and the flavors from the garden.

I want to try parsley, green onions and cucumbers again next spring. I don't know what the heck happened this last season, but my annuals were all stunted.

And I agree ornamentmaven- nothing like fresh herbs- I'm a new convert!

I re-did a portion of my backyard this past year and only planted perennials. But, I did grow a couple of Green Pepper plants that are now inside and still producing. Have not yet decided about next Spring... :santasmile:

I have recently been trying to grow from seed. For some reason I just cannot grow grape tomatoes. But I am currently seeing spinach, radishes, and green beans come up, along with some corn that the squirrels have planted randomly in my garden- thanks guys! :elf3:

You would think with all the rain that my plants would be thriving. The ones that have survived are only a couple inches tall- and it's almost August!

Squash did not do too well this year, but I might have had them too close. Got a few peppers, but not quite what I hoped for there either... :waving:

I finally figured out what's wrong with just about everything (including the window boxes) in my yard this year- a fungal infection from all the rain. :elf2: At least I know what to do about it for next year.

I have decided now that my veggies are done for the year, to plant a nice Fall mum by my front door... :elf3:

The Squash did not do as well, so this year I will be planting green onions, regular onions and bell peppers... :jumping:

Do you think your mum will come back this year?

Most people can't wait to get out and garden. I'm dreading it. I have to treat EVERYTHING for fungal infection and should have done it already, but can't apply it when there will be rain. And it's raining frequently. :rain: I need some warm sunshine to energize me! :happysummer:

I can understand that. We are getting a mix these days. For this Spring, I am thinking green onions and peppers. That way I am certain they will be eaten... lol :jumping:

I planted seed for kale, red cabbage, purple potatoes, blue corn, yellow corn, lettuce, mustard greens, green onions and grape tomatoes. Between my cats, the birds, the rabbits and I'm not sure what else, I hardly have anything growing. I finally fenced off a small portion, just so I can have something! I was really looking forward to the corn, but I think something's taking the seeds from underneath, since I've been watching the ground for disturbance. I'm trying to deter the animals by using garlic essential oil around the plants, but with the frequent rain it keeps getting washed off. The smell is really making me want a salad, though. :gelf:

I did place in planters, green peppers and green onions. The onions came as a seed strip! Very handy. I also stuck a few kernels of corn in a very large planter just for fun. The peppers and onions are growing, we will see on the corn. I hope you get enough to have made your efforts worthwhile... :kinky elf:

I finally got one shoot of corn. I've been watching it grow and looking forward to it. I went out today and it has completely disappeared! Along with the extra corn seeds I just planted! Pretty much everywhere I plant is going to be fenced in next year! :mad:

Glad your plants are faring better than mine!
