This year we started by planting potatoes in the back of the garden, as well as green beans (fresh green beans are like candy, seriously) and then toward the front we've got the usuals, tomatoes and peppers. Let's just say went a little crazy with the peppers this year. We've got red, green, yellow and jalapeño peppers planted to encourage some great grillin' as well as some salsa later in the summer. Oh, and I almost forgot, there's zucchini as well. I can't go through summer without making Grandma's famous zucchini bread, both original and chocolate.
Are you seeing the future posts for the summer? I know I am and I can't wait to kick it off. Take a look at some garden pictures below and tell the test nesters about what you're planting in your garden this year.

We'll see what flourishes this year in the garden. I'll keep you posted. For now, let us know how your garden is going or if your hesitant about starting a garden, feel free to ask us questions. Gardens are such a rewarding adventure so if you have the space, let 'er grow!
