Hello Bananamelon,

glad you\'re here to the forum.

We're planning on having lettuce, spinach, chard, beets, radishes, carrots, peas, garlic, peppers (hot and sweet), tomatoes, watermelon and pumpkins.
I don't know all the cultivars by name so this is just an overview.

thanks

Bananamelon, Welcome to the Forum. glad you\'re here Since you are new, please introduce yourself under the Home page Introduce yourself. Are you using the SFG method with raised beds and dirtless Mel's Mix? Total Newbie to gardening or an experienced row gardener?

Most folks plant what they like to eat. That's always a good starting point. As Camprn suggested, start reading the Topics, especially those in your Region. See Home page for your Region. Your Country Ag Extension and Master Gardener group should have local info on line.

Post  Marc Iverson 9/20/2014, 5:18 pm

Yeah, what sanderson said. Your local MG's and extension agents will know what grows best in your area, down to not just the plants, but the specific breed of plant -- (say, one kind of lettuce or tomato rather than another). That location-specific info is priceless. They should even be able to give you great hand-outs, including charts on when to plant what. All their experience and knowledge will keep you from having to reinvent the wheel, and you'll be glad to have your learning curve dramatically shortened.

Keep in mind, too, that even many nursery pros online and elsewhere will confidently comment and instruct on how and when and what to plant, but will do so as if the whole world had the climate, soil, season length, type of pests and diseases and etc. that their own very particular place does. You could find someone who, say, plants garlic for a living telling you to plant it a month too early or a month too late for your particular area. That person may be an expert, but that doesn't mean he knows anything about your local area or conditions, or even how important the differences are. Even the pros often assume that what holds true for them holds true universally.

So try to verify ideas by seeing if you can find people from more than one source agreeing with them. And best of all, go with your local scientists at your county's agricultural extension service and the master gardeners they train. One working scientist is worth a heap of old myths and assumptions.

Well certainly, carry on then.  What a Face
but if you want to see other plans, seek the previous threads. Also check out the regional forums to find what others are growing now. 
What did you grow this year? What do you like to eat?

Post  quiltbea 1/23/2015, 4:47 pm

Welcome to the forum.  glad you\'re here

Sorry, I can't be much help.  This year I'm cutting wayyyyy back due to health issues.  My 4 x 4 SFG beds (9 of them plus three 16' long berms) will be mostly growing perennial flowers and bushes except for one bed half in Broccoli and one bed mostly Brussels sprouts.  Three or 4 of these 4 x 4's will have a trellis on the north side for sugar snap peas.  While the perennials are still small, I plan to plant bush beans here and there to get some food from the boxes. 

In my particular case, I just can't handle going up that steep hill to the back garden each and every day so flowers seemed the best way for me to go.  Another 4 x 4'  bed has a covered frame so I'll plant according to the season:  Lettuces, radishes and spinach for salads in early spring; mini tomatoes like Totem and Tumbling Tom, peppers and Basil in the summer and in the fall its scheduled for greens like Arugula, Mizuna, Claytonia, Corn salad (Mache) and Wrinkled Cress.  These greens will grow into early winter for me here because its covered with thick plastic.   One long berm is perennial Asparagus and one strawberries and the other is for kale and chard and leftover extra plants and my cold frame.
As I said, not much help.
In my flower bed outside my kitchen door, I'll tuck in herbs and greens and potted Determinate tomatoes and small sweet peppers like Lunchbox, this year.  Its much closer and no steep hill to negotiate.

But, yes, as mentioned, grow what you like to eat.  I started with just about everything 5 years ago but gave away things I didn't care for.  Learned to save my space for foods I enjoyed most, and my energy. Very Happy
I also learned that home-grown food tastes so much better than store-bought.
Good luck in your adventure into gardening this year.

sanderson, I'm back to my quilting.  I just finished a small wallhanging this month.  I call it Blue Butterfly and I'm using my favorite colors, turquoise.  Here it is:
2015 garden plan Blue_b12
And No, I'm not hijacking this thread.  For those not interested in this garden visiting beauty, please pass on by and I'll talk seeds for my garden plan.
 

I'm making a new and longer list of greens for this year to include Cressida, Kyoto, Tokyo Bekana, and Minutina and even a warm-weather Mache named Medallion.  I'm really going to get into greens.
I even went to the garage and pulled out a few bags of potting soil and seed starting soil to make up containers.  They are defrosting as I type. Very Happy

I love looking at garden plans, so here is my updated one.  CC, lovely plan, you sure love your greens.  Gorgeous quilt, QB.  I am sorry to hear you have to cut back on your gardening but you seem to managing a lot of greens as well.  In pots at the house?

I get it through Territorial seeds, pay 25$/year to host it and do all the what evers they do.  I think it is the same as the one offered by Farmers Almanac and possibly others.  Growveg.com is either the same or very similar.

I like it but consider it a bit frivolous.  Certainly I keep better notes since I started using it.  And it is great fun on a snowy day to play with.

Turan.....Great garden plan.  I tried one of those free for quite a while but made changes so much, that I found that keeping mine in pencil on paper worked better for me.  When I finally planted in the garden, I erased the pencil marks and entered names in ink so it wouldn't fade.   It was just easier for me to keep a notebook handy and get into it in a hurry than sit down and get online to find my freebie garden plan.
But I have to admit, yours looks better and neater than mine in pencil. Very Happy

Post  Turan 1/24/2015, 12:24 pm

QB, I also used to use a notebook.  I found it harder to make multiple changes in, all that erasing got muddy etc.  Some how for me moving little pictures around is much easier.  It also keeps track of where I grew stuff in previous years so as I move a plant it shows in red where it had been before.  Helps the rotations happen. 

But, and this is a big but, I can not take this 'puter to the garden.  So if I have complicated planting plan to execute I would need to print this out (or make a quick drawing) and bring a pencil to mark the changes as reality hits the plan.  I have never done this, my garden is right outside my door and I go in and out as I get seeds or another drink etc and check the plan on the puter and update it.  If I believed in every adjoining square must be something different I might need the diagram with me.
