Our list at this point:

garlic
tomatoes- beefsteak, cherry, grape, roma, possibly the yellow variety we grew last year
peppers- green, red, jalapeño, hatch chiles ++
zucchini
leeks
cantaloupe
watermelon
squash - butternut, acorn
gourds
pumpkins - pie and jack-o-lantern +
corn
beans - yellow and green bush
basil
mint
cilantro
onions
potatoes
spinach
mesculin mix
romaine
cabbages (usually end up being only for the chickens)
jerusalem artichoke
beets
cukes - pickling and english
raspberries
blackberries
black caps
celery

I am sure I am missing something and there are always last second add-ins...

Re: what are you growing this year?

Honestly I haven't looked through my seed stash yet. I'm trying to not order any seeds and just use up some extras from last year. I won't be starting seedlings inside, everything will be either be direct seeded or purchased as starts from the farmer's market. We live in a good climate for direct seeding and honestly most things do best that way!

There is a possibility that we may need to move this summer so I am not planning on going all out with gardening in the case that we don't get to harvest everything. I definitely will be planting a nice kitchen garden though. Our large garden plot (5000 sqft) that we used last year is being turned into a goat pen for our buck and his wether buddy. I know for sure I'll be planting lots of lettuce, kale, carrots, onions, zucchini, sweet peppers and tomatoes. The peppers and tomatoes are going to be purchased as starts and planted in pots so we can take them with us if we need to move. I probably won't do a ton of those, just enough to have fresh.

Re: what are you growing this year?

Our spring garden was a failure last year, so we're skipping that this year to get ready for new goats and chickens, and our summer garden which will include:

Corn (probably Howling Mob from RH Shumway's)
Green Beans
Sugar Snap Peas?
Tomatoes
Okra
Zuchini
Yellow Squash
Cucumbers
Peppers?
