Rough Draft for Summer 2008

We brainstormed up a list of what we’d like to grow in the garden this summer. Here’s the start of it:

  • Blueberries, new addition
  • Rosa rugosa, new addition
  • Basil
  • Perfecta Detroit beets
  • Brocolli
  • Pole beans
  • Edamame
  • Melon of some sort maybe
  • Eggplant, 2 kinds
  • Pickling cucumbers, perhaps
  • Mesclun
  • Greens, maybe Swiss Chard
  • Kale
  • Sugar peas
  • Red peppers of the sweet variety
  • Ancho peppers
  • Pumpkins, sweet
  • Yellow squash
  • Zucchini
  • Winter squash, acorn or butternut
  • Tomatoes, including Amish paste and Brandywine
  • Sunflowers

The above would be in addition to the already established black raspberries, asparagus, mint, oregano, thyme, and rhubarb.

Yes, the list looks like a lot, but it’s actually about how much variety we usually grow. I’m excited about the prospect of trying to grow more of our own food. What are we forgetting?
