The Plan Includes...

Here's what the plan calls for. Although, when Jamey handed me the list, he said that it doesn't include the things he's not telling me about. When asked to elaborate, he told me that he plans on planting some things I told him I didn't want. He has a planting addiction, I think.

peas
lettuce- a variety
broccoli
cauliflower
spinach
eggplant
swiss chard
zucchini
bell peppers- red and green
jalapenos
garlic
onions
tomatoes- romas and slicers
green beans
potatoes- white/gold, red
squash- butternut and acorn
basil
parsley
corn
carrots
dry beans- black and kidney
watermelon
cantaloupe
beets
cucumbers
sweet potatoes
pumpkins
sunflowers
cabbage

Then, there are those things we already have established: red and black raspberries, asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries, pears and sour cherries. We also have eight apple trees and four peach trees that were two years old when we planted them a year ago.

Ok. So, does that sound do-able with a newborn? Please pray for us. Or at least come when we call and cart produce away when we're swimming in it.

  1. Oh Gen,

    Gardening with a newborn! I remember our sweet corn was in full swing when Isis was born. I was exhausted and hysterical. I cursed at Chris and told him he could throw it all in the cow field for all I cared. :) I will pray that you have better coping (and social) skills than I did. You guys will do fine. You are amazing.

  2. I just read your "Why we do what we do" section. Makes perfect sense to me! And I was wondering...would you be willing to share your pickled beet recipe? They are one of my all-time favorites and I'm going to grow beets specifically to pickle them! You can email me directly if you'd like...moonshinelane@aol.com. Thanks!

Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
