What's Growing This Season

I almost called this post "Round-up" of what's growing, but that brought to mind weed-killing chemicals flying through the air, so this is just a plain old list of some of the new and interesting vegetables we will be growing this year. Over the weekend we planted the rest of our summer seeds.

As always, we're growing tomatoes, peppers, squash, pole beans, cucumbers, and herbs. As I was outlining my garden plans several months ago, I decided that I wanted to branch out and try some different crops, so we have added tomatillos (both green and purple!) to our list, as well as the following peppers from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds:
Top to bottom: Bronze D'Amposta onion, Jupiter sweet pepper, Purple Beauty sweet pepper, Sweet Chocolate pepper

I'm so curious to see what the Jupiter pepper really looks like, as there were no actual pictures available. And I keep a running list of what we're growing on this page.


  1. Hello. I found your blog on Blotanical. Nice job. I wanted to pass my encouragement of the tomatillo. I have been growing them for a couple of years and love them. I hope you do too.

  2. Interesting selection of peppers. I've never seen anything but yellow, red and green in my part of the world. You have me thinking about the Chocolate Beauty. It's beautiful and I hope tasty. I think I'll try it with they yellow and red this season.


Hello, and thanks for stopping by my garden site. I appreciate the time it takes to read posts and comment. Happy Gardening!
