Well…I yanked the last of the tomato and pepper plants. We had a few nights where it dropped down to the freezing and my ‘maters froze.
Here’s a list of all the veggies I planted this year:
Red Leaf Lettuce
Bush Green Beans
Sweet Italian Peppers
Red Carribean Haberano Peppers
Mexican Grey Squash
Yellow Crook-neck Squash
Yellow Pear Tomatoes
Things I will do different next year:
Sugar Peas ~ I think I’ll pass on the peas next year. I don’t have the room to plant the amount one needs to get a good crop yield.
Tomatoes ~ No more wee tomatoes. My mom gave me two of her Heirloom tomatoes and I took the seeds out of one (then ate the tomato! Yum!). I’ll start plants from the seeds…definitely need plants in spring, not seeds.
Corn ~ Definitely more corn! It was very tasty and I didn’t plant enough this year. Excellent seed starters, do not need plants.
Onions ~ I’m going to pass on the green onions and plant yellow and red onions. Garlic too! The garlic will be planted this fall.
Radishes and Carrots ~ Yes! Excellent seed starters, do not need plants.
Squash ~ I think I’m going to just go with the Mexican Grey Squash and only two plants. I love that stuff and it grew much better than the zucchini and crook-neck. Excellent seed starters, do not need plants.
Of course Pumpkins…I’ll plant only two mounds and put them out front where they grew the best. Excellent seed starters, do not need plants.
I’ll only plant Green Beans next year and put them where I had the pumpkins in the back (that didn’t grow too well)…it’ll be a great place for them where it’ll be easy to stake them. (see picture below) Excellent seed starters, do not need plants.
More cucumber plants…this time I’ll make something for them to climb on. Excellent seed starters, do not need plants.
Yes to Cayenne Peppers and then I’ll plant New Mexican Hatch Green Chiles too. I seeded both of them and will start the seeds early so I have nice size plants to transplant in the spring…it takes too long to start them by seed in the spring.
Potatoes ~ I’m going to plant potatoes next year. I KNOW that they grow great in northern Nevada. I’d like to try Cabbage too.
I’ll move the basil out front where the parsley and thyme is. Rhubarb plants stay where they’re at. The Romaine and Red Leaf Lettuce didn’t do all that well as the squash plants over-powered them. If I plant them next year it will have to be in a place all by themselves.
