I grow tomatoes (one slicing variety, one grape variety, and one cherry variety), peaches (freestone), and figs... and four o'clocks, irises, daffodils, hyacinths, tulips, crape myrtles, pomegranates, and wisteria. Oh... and lots and lots of weeds and cool toadstools in funny little corners of the yard.

I suppose family and all media members can't play along.

Most years, I grow tomatoes, squash, and maybe a couple of other vegetables. This year, though, it's all herbs--basil, rosemary, thyme, lavender. I had parsley and sage, but they both died. I stopped trying to grow cilantro because it always bolts--I'm interested in this "slow bolt" option and how well it will hold up to Georgia summers!

Scottie

This year we do not have a garden. We just moved and it was too late to get it in the ground. Sigh. However, I usually plant corn, tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapeños, garlic, onions, watermelon, and pumpkins. I already cannot wait till next year.

Michelle

I only have a deck garden but it's doing pretty well! I have already harvested and cooked sugar snap peas..I have zucchini coming up as well as Japanese eggplant and I'm waiting patiently for my tomatoes! I also have herbs, hyssop, rosemary, chives, peppermint, spearmint, chamomile and catnip! :))

'Natara

We just moved into this house, so I'm working at getting the garden going, but I have some herbs in pots (basil, oregano, dill, mint, thyme, chives). I'm looking at planting rosemary and lavender, and we just got a free shade tree form the city (pink trumpet or something) that's going in the ground this week. There's a spot out back where I am going to put some shelves and do more herbs in pots, possibly some flowers as well.

I have a wonderful garden this year, squash, melons, tomatoes, sunflowers, carrots, onions, cucumbers and a wonderful herb garden. After two years of not being able to garden it has made my day every time I open the back door! Eating the food I've grown makes me so happy!

Angie

I have a few small gardens everywhere. I'm growing tomatoes, peppers, cauliflower, basil, mustard greens, swiss chard, Rutabaga, Peas, beans, carrots, lettuce, spinach, kohlrabi, turnips and many more herbs and berries.

Wawa

No real garden this year, just my pot of mint that grows itself and my rosemary bush that is begging to be transplanted into the ground. We've got big plans for next year though!

Judith

You know what I have... I grow tomatoes for the birds, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, cow horn peppers, and all kinds of herbs.

Jane M

We have oh so many deer in our area that I am growing tomatoes, zucchini and cucumbers in my window boxes! I'm not getting too much of a crop, but at least I'm not feeding the deer. On my deck I have 2 huge pots of tomatoes growing and they are doing AMAZING! Next year, I'm getting rid of my deck furniture and growing more pots of veggies!

Ascelyn

I only have an herb garden this year (lavendar, two kinds of sage, oregano, chamomile, thyme, lemon thyme, and mint), but I've grown tomaotoes and peppers in years past. We're getting the soil eady for a new veggie garden next year, when my son will be a year old and hopefully a little more amenable to letting mama play in the dirt. I'm excited!

lucy

I just grow flat leaf parsley and basil! That's all I have time for! Oh and in front in my garden just for fun I have Anise, Lavender and Sage! I wanted some fragrance in my garden.

Amanda N

We garden in three raised beds and scatter a few things in the flower beds too. We have four types of tomatoes, cucumbers, okra, three types of peppers and eggplant growing now. The second planting of squash had the sme fate as the first planting, so no squash this year. Thanks for the giveaway.

Michael M.

I grow a crazed companion-plant-based garden. You'll find nasturtium, milk thistle, borage, strawberries, beans, mint, eggplant, tomatoes, basil, many different peppers, calendula, oregano, passionflower, carrots, red clover, flax, parsley, rosemary, Iceland poppies, lemon verbena, lemon balm, lemon grass, mammoth dill, cilantro/coriander, sage, thyme, bee balm, lavender, chamomile, and spinach. We also have a Three Sisters Garden (corn, beans, squash/melon), with sunflowers too!

Megan

I have a small patio garden with a couple different tomatoes, (my favorite this year is amish paste) parsley, basil, sage, blueberries, jalapenos, gardenia, geraniums, a teeny plumeria tree grown from a cutting and a dwarf lemon tree.. all in pots. Hooray!

Renee Paddock

I have a small garden with yellow and green zucchini, 3 varieties of cucumber, 8 varieties of tomatoe (grown from seed), peppers, 6 varieties of basil (can't have too much of a good thing!!) purple beans, yellow beans, green beans, and chinese noodle beans, kholrabi, loose leaf cabbage, cilantro, onions, garlic and shallots. To my horror, I have been unable to grow decent radishes yet, but hope to remedy that some day.
I even grow some lettuce and green beans in window boxes off of my porch.
We've been gardening for 5 years and some are good and productive, other times we have less success (last year was one of the worst!). I'd LOVE to have the seeds for next year's garden~!~

patty reed

I have a small garden I grow pickles, onions, rosemary, beets, chives, leeks. I'm a former farmer, I just love the dirt. i'd love the seeds as well.

Beth

I have a small garden. I plant tomatoes,basil,marigolds
and geraniums. I have some periennials-lavender,bee balm, and red beard's tongue.
I have two varieties of Iris-Japenese and a blue one.
I have to watch them so the three rascally rabbits that have discovered my garden don't chomp on the plants.

Kat

We have three large raised beds, and several other areas of the yard planted with everything from squash to sunflowers (for seeds, if we can get some from the birds), cherries, apricots, artichokes, eggplants...just everything! All kinds of herbs, lots of catnip, too. New to the whole adventure is bees!

Kat

Oh, and I mentioned the giveaway on my blog:

Zoe

I started my first garden this year. My mom flew out from Oregon to help me build some raised beds. I planted tomatoes (12 plants; I'm a tomato fiend), carrots, six types of lettuce, peas, and onions. Unfortunately, some pesky rabbits ended up eating EVERYTHING except the tomatoes. Next year I will be putting up rabbit fencing.

Pretty disappointing, but at least my tomatoes are doing well. :)

Karla McMurrin

We tried tomatoes in pots this year because we've never been very good at weeding the garden. Mixed results. Seems to depend somewhat on the variety. We have lots of yellow, droopy leaves. One heritage variety is the exception. Good experiment, but I think we'll go back to the garden next year, and mulch a lot to control the weeds.

Joanne

I grow loads of flowers all over the place, but have a small area designated for tomatoes... and this year, I have a bumper crop! For the first time ever, too many tomatoes to eat! I would love to be brave and try new vegetables. thanks for the give-away!
