Spring Gardening: What's growing in my garden

Awhile back I wrote a blog about what I was planting and I’ve shared about our first salad.  So here’s the Spring 2012 garden so you can see exactly what’s growing.  Just a reminder that I’m in zone 6 and we did not receive snow this past weekend, just rain.  Sorry to those of you that lost any plants/veggies in the weekend storm.  As you can see, I received my Mother’s Day gift early and the cucumber trellis is already in the ground!  The baby cucumber plants will grow up around the trellis. 

That brings me to my question for the readers.  What should I grow this Summer in the garden?  Except for the carrots and shallots (and cucumbers), everything should be harvested by Memorial weekend and ready for new summer crops.  Thanks to the elevated cucmber trellis, I can grow crops underneath also.  So let me know what you’d like to see growing in the garden this summer.  Tell me what you’ve had luck with in your garden.  I’d love to hear your feedback.

    1. Thanks for following and for your summer veggie suggestions. We add tomatoes in the garden too but you just can't beat the taste of the Jersey tomatoes just across state lines. : )
