The list


All this time thinking and reading about the garden, and where have I gotten to?

The list of things to plant this year. I first wrote up a list in the first week of January, but here's the edited version, with additions in italic, cancellations struck out:

  • Asparagus
  • Onions - bulb, green
  • Shallots
  • Leeks
  • Kale
  • Carrots
  • Potatoes
  • Tomatoes
  • Green beans
  • Lima beans
  • Black beans
  • Peppers
  • (more) Blueberries
  • Lingonberries
  • Wintergreen Corn (Silver Queen? King?)
  • Squash - winter
  • Pumpkin (pie) ?
  • Corn Salad
  • Claytonia
  • Lettuce
  • Black Currant (Titania)
  • Juneberry?
  • Hardy Kiwi
  • Hops
  • Mulberry
  • Broccoli
  • Cabbage
  • Celery
  • Celeriac
  • Endive, for forcing
  • Chicory
  • Collards?
  • Cress?
  • Cucumber
  • Dandelion (the other kind)
  • Eggplant
  • Kohlrabi?
  • Parsnip
  • Hamburg Parsley
  • Peas/Snow Peas
  • Radish - daikon?
  • Spinach?
  • Chard?
  • Zucchini?
  • Bok Choi
  • Tat Soi
  • French Sorrel
  • Rhubarb
  • French Tarragon

A number of these are things I hadn't tried until recently (like parsnips), or things whose values we've learned through local eating, like Bok Choi, which we can get from Finger Lakes Fresh. A few (notably the berries, wintergreen, mulberry, rhubarb, asparagus, and french sorrel) come from the hope that we can get some tasty perennials into the mix.

Next step: figuring out which of these come from where, and which variety. That'll probably end up being a much nicer table instead of a list. I also get to figure out where they'll go, especially the things that need or want trellises.

(And suggestions are welcome - just remember I'm in USDA zone 5, on the north side of a hill.)
