    Fruits and vegetables... Can be something better? Growing them takes a lot of time and a lot of work to do, but effects are stunning. It is nice to see big trees or little seedlings with fruits on them and picking them is just a pleasure. Unfortunately, I haven't got a chance now to have a big garden with such things in it; howowever, it is my dream! What about you? What fruits and vegetables have you got in your gardens?

    In the future, I will sow various vegetables as here: https://gardenseedsmarket.com/vegetables-en/

    I put in one large grow bed. It is 8' wide and 24' long (2.5m wide and 7.3m long)
    I have planted:
    • Bunching onions
    • Carrots
    • Purple Onions
    • Banana Peppers
    • Okra
    • Zucchini
    • Cucumbers
    • Tomatoes
    • Squash
    • Corn
    • 2 Watermelon Vines on one end
    Not too confident they will do good this year since Winter lasted so long and we are already having highs of 95 degrees (35 Celsius)
    But right now they are growing like gang-busters!

    I have tomatoes and peppers in containers on my deck. Also have 3-4 varieties of fruit trees (peach, plum and apricot). I need to fertilize and prune the fruit trees BADLY!! They have been neglected for a few years...

    Began this year with tomatoes and peppers, about 25 total containers. These days I am attempting beets, collards, cabbage, broccoli and radishes.

    I have never tried any of these before and am excited by the challenge! Youtube has been helpful for quick tutorials on each and every variety so I feel confident for success but there will be casualties along the way

    Sorry Carolyn, ginger and garlic are two separate vegetables, I just left out the commas in my list.
