Garden is in. Hubby planted lots of different peppers, beans, carrots, cucumbers, two types of onion, kale, squash, potatoes, and my cherries are blooming well. The rhubarb and strawberry plants are coming along.

I bought 4 package of seeds at Dollar Tree yesterday - to try them. I'm going to start them soon - inside - and see what happens. Lettuce, carrots, can't recall what else - but 4 different things. I don't plan to grow too many different things - a lot of potatoes and just a bit of this and that.

I am going to do cherry tomatoes in big pots in the yard. They freeze well, if we get a bumper crop. I'd also love to find some bush cucumbers because they will do well in large pots. Leaf lettuce will grow well in something shallow like a wash tub, and a net over and some bamboo skewers will keep cats from using it as a potty.

I've started my seeds indoors for this year's garden - squash, carrots, chard. I plan to plant a lot of potatoes as well - and probably not too much more. It's been several years since I've been serious about growing vegetables and I need to start out small and not bite off more than I can chew.

Starting small is a great idea.
