Just thyme, parsley and basil and just started ginger root, nice and hot!

I'd plant the whole thing to tiny red peppers to share with all my friends!

Prime rib and ice cream. Way to think outside of the box, Lyndee! I am with you, girl!

Prime rib, potatoes, corn, and ice cream! :)))

Sharon-We call your rockmelons cantelope. They are SO sweet and juicy! Num num is right! Laura's beefsteak tomatoes are so big and delish....you would LOVE THEM!
Thanks Robbie! Do you also grow your own herbs?

Robbiel

Fun puzzle Suzy, thanks! Potatoes, onions, carrots and sweet potatoes are the staples for our garden.

Not sure if it would get warm enough in your springtime but I would plant Rockmelons. Num num. I had to look up LauraJane's beefsteak ...didn't think she would plant a cow. Geez!!

Raised beds, Patti. They work wonders! :)
Toto-I can taste those freshly picked berries already. Can't WAIT!
You have a good list going, Laura. :) It all sounds good to me!
Thank you Cathy. Would love to see a puzzle of your Russian kale.
Thank you, Florrie. This photo (or one of the set from Monticello) always become my desktop this time of year. It makes me believe. ☺

I love this photo - it's that point in spring when you really begin to believe in it.

Nice picture and survey Suzy!! I have Russian kale plants that wintered in my garden. They are growing like mad right now!!!

laurajane

Beefsteaks, zucchini, pumpkins, butternut squash, Kentucky Wonders....for starters.

Toto

Strawberries!

Anything low maintenance!

Way to start those plants, Joe! :)
You can grow your garden in big containers, chickie. No aching back that way!
I agree smllpkg. Snow in the air here today on and off as well. Soon!!!
My garden is being sketched out on paper. Time to dream of spring, Ginger!

All the ones that will like the cooler weather Suzy. Hubby is already planting in his mind.Ha, ha

I would love to be able to get out there and clean up under the shrubs and rake up the leaves that didn't get bagged in the fall. But it'll be awhile yet. It's snowing right now.

chickiemama

Oh, my aching back! LOL Only tomatoes, basil and peppers if I was ever to have a garden again.

PutterDutt

Joe's had baby tomatoes growing on the kitchen window sill for a few weeks now. Then green beans and squash and loads of other stuff!!

SandiT- I am anxious to plant as well. Although there are some bare spots on the ground, my gardens are still snow covered, and nights are cold. :( Not sure what's to the left of the onions-maybe an herb of some sort? This was taking at Monticello back in 2008. Jefferson's gardens were exceptional.

Peas and spinach, Beekay! :) I'm wondering when we'll be able to "work the soil" for the peas?!

Ah, madhat! Those of us itching for signs of spring shall live vicariously through you!

madhat

garlic. lots of garlic. I already planted potatoes, bell pepper, tomatoes, and pole beans.

Beekay

Usually snow peas and spinach are the first to be planted in my garden. What are your first items?

SandiT

I'd plant spinach, lettuce, onions and perhaps potatoes. I'm so anxious, but it was 27 degrees here this morning, so there will be no planting for me, except in my greenhouse. What is growing in the row to the left of the onions?
