Veggie Grow List for 2010

Okiedawn OK Zone 7
14 years ago

I've planned and plotted, made and revised lists, added 'this' and dropped 'that' and finally have arrived at the list of veggies I'm going to plant in 2010.

If the list of varieties seems so much longer than previous years, that's because it is. I haven't broken ground for much of the "new" expanded garden area yet, but will do so just as soon as the ground dries up a bit...assuming it ever does. I do have the ground broken for the new potato garden so I'll have space to plant all the potatoes I want.

So, for better or worse, and with careful succession and interplanting in order to squeeze in the maximum amount of plants possible in one long growing season, here's what we'll be growing and eating in 2010:

BEANS: Yes, this is an insane amount of beans, but I have lots of fences for them to climb. We didn't have a huge bean crop this year, although we had a decent late crop. For me, 2010 is going to be the year of the bean. With this many beans planted in close proximity, I doubt I'll attempt seed-saving unless I wrap seed bean plants in row cover fabric to keep the bees away.

To make room for this many beans, I had to cut way, way back on melons and peppers.

I haven't even compiled my flower, ornamental pepper and herb list yet.

I'm sure the dogs will plant/have planted their usual ornamental gourds around the dog yard fence and I have an envelope of the "Gremlins" gourd mix to add to whatever the dogs planted.

I don't know which plants will end up in the ground and which will be in containers, but I am planning to have more containers than last year even with the extra square footage in the new beds.

OK, I've shown you my list of varieties for 2010. Now, show me yours!
