Spring PlantsEdit

A list of plants to have in the garden in 2009

Bold = What we need to order

SummerEdit

  • Okra -- Too much last time, grow half amount (From meeting at Open Eye, 1/17/09)
  • Southern field peas
  • Bush Beans -- (From meeting at Open Eye, 1/17/09)
  • Chinese Red Noodle Bean -- these are the long red beans that we grew summer before last that were gorgeous, unbelievably prolific, and very popular as an easy stir fry bean. I'm going to make a small seed order from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and would be happy to get these if anyone is interested.
  • Rattlesnake pole beans -- an heirloom flat, varigated green bean that did really well in the garden two years ago from Baker Creek.
  • Luffas -- Not used last time, will try birdhouse gourd instead (From meeting at Open Eye, 1/17/09)
  • Birdhouse Gourd (Grow along fence)
  • In place of the luffa, I would also suggest trying Mirliton squash (Louisiana name) or Chayote, its more common Aztec name. They are prolific, delicious, and grow in the same habit. Highly tolerant of heat and humidity, as well as drought.
  • Basil -- Preference for other varieties other than Iraqi Basil (From meeting at Open Eye, 1/17/09)
    • Genovese (DJ 2008)
  • Summer Squash
    • Cucurbita Pepa Yellow early crookneck (BI 2008)
  • Butternut squash (DJ 2008)
  • Muskemelon (CCGC 2008)
  • Watermelon (CCGC 2008)
  • Hot Peppers -- (From meeting at Open Eye, 1/17/09)
    • Less habaneros (two plants)
    • Serrano (From meeting at Open Eye, 1/17/09)
    • Jalapeno (From meeting at Open Eye, 1/17/09)
  • Peppers -- (From meeting at Open Eye, 1/17/09)
    • Red
    • Green
    • Banana
  • Eggplant
  • Herbs
    • Golden Seal
    • Burdock
    • Mullein
    • Arnica
    • St. Johns Wort
    • Peppermint
    • Lavender -- not worth planting unless you bring in rocks and sand and plant it high and dry (April)
    • Chamomile
    • Echinacea
    • HUGE sunflowers and Cleome (spider flower), lots of zinnias, marigolds, and nasturtiums -- I think the garden could use more flowers this year, possibly near the entrance, or along the fence somewhere. I'd be happy to work on that as a weekday project since I still can't do Saturdays.- April
