All this cold weather is making me think spring, since it's not that far off either. Which I can't wait, because I'm ready to start my garden. Each year brings some thing different, but just more of the same. Last year, I had way too many tomato plants and not enough pepper plants, the cucumbers kind of took over because I let 4 plants grow instead of one. Had some onions and garlic last year too, probably won't do them again this year. They were fine, but just items I don't use much. I'm still unsure what I'll plant different this year, I'll decide when I go buy the plants.
I know for sure, 2 tomato plants, 1 cucumber plant, green bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, some other kind of sweet pepper, and I'm not sure about the rest.
In years past I have grown watermelon, corn, potatoes, many attempts at sugar pees, green beans, and pumpkins. Most of these items take up too much space, which if you can't tell from the above picture, space is limited. I wish I had a bigger space to grow those veggies, but I just don't. Most of those are easy to grow, you just plant them and watch them grow. Not much maintenance at all.
This recent cold blast has given me spring fever.
