We are seeing the early signs of spring around here, and around the dinner table last night we created our annual “things we want to plant and grow this year” list.

Here, then, is the list:

  • Big tomatoes (ie, slicers)
  • Little tomatoes (cherries)
  • lettuce and spinach
  • watermelons
  • cucumbers to make pickles (it was a revelation to Alistair that pickles come from cucumbers)
  • green beans – enough to eat fresh and enough to freeze for winter

I don’t think we have the time or attention to start anything from seed this year, so we’ll be heading to the garden center when the time comes.

In other news, our CSA is taking the year off from the program and devoting their energy to expanding their farm.  So we hope to get to our town’s farmers market a little more often this summer.

What are you planning/hoping to grow this year?
