The Garden is Planted!

It’s a week late but we finally got everything planted in the vegetable garden. I used to plan it. I really like this software. It’s easy to use and covers everything I want in a planner and then some!

We have tomatoes! New Girl, San Marzano Giante, Jersey Devil, Cherokee Purple (my fav) and Jolly Elf. Peppers–Early Jalapeno, Joe E. Parker Anaheim and California Wonder Bell. Also, Rocambole Garlic, Patterson Yellow Onion, Black Beauty Eggplant, Zucchini, Butternut Squash, Double Yield Pickling Cucumbers, Jade Bush Green Beans Tyee Spinach, various mixes of Lettuces and Kale. Oregano, thyme, lemon thyme and rosemary are planted in containers and various locations throughout the landscape.

I’ll be adding carrots and cabbage when the garlic and onions come out. I’m still undecided what else to plant for the fall and winter garden. Maybe more cabbages and kales. I’m new at cabbage and a little confused. The seed catalogs don’t seem to say which season goes with a particular variety of cabbage. Some are very quick growers, others can take 5 or 6 months, but are they winter, spring or fall cabbages? If anyone has clues, please post a comment.

Growing Up Jersey Garden – May planting.

Here’s a link to the layout, plant list and planting schedule. I’ll post the garden layout changes as the season progresses.


I did my annual tomato plant give-away on Freecycle. I always plant extras because I have the greenhouse space and lots of these varieties aren’t available in the nurseries. I went a bit overboard and had 150 extra plants, but there were plenty of freecyclers willing to give them some garden space.
