ke4est,I tried growing some broccoli last year and it produced pretty well but the dang bugs were a nightmare.Any tips to keep them from getting eaten alive?Really don't want to put any pesticide on my veggies.

For some reason last few years, I have not had a real bad bug problem, and I am not really sure why. But not complaining:D
I don't like putting Seven-Dust on that kind of stuff either.

Cabbage and maters are starting to come in, and as usual I plant way to many peppers. Looks like I will have lots again this year.

Had some spring lettuce and onions but,that's about all.That elevation makes a world of difference.

I have my methods of dealing with squirrels ;), but have always heard mothballs and/or dip rags in vinegar and hang near the plants, re-dip once a week.

Friends-fans to a kitchen garden also that on it we will grow up. With a holiday of spring of all. Snow will soon thaw and it is time to work on a kitchen garden.
About vegetables clearly - for each climate the vegetables. Together with berries that at us grow. You know that itself the big berry-it a water-melon.
And what berries grow on your kitchen garden.? And you love what berry more....?
At me on a kitchen garden grows. A strawberry. Wild strawberry. A raspberry early and a raspberry late. A water-melon. The Currant-red and black. A gooseberry. A blackberry. A guelder-rose. A cherry. Plum. Grapes. A mountain ash.
Each berry is tasty on the. And from various illnesses it is good.
But itself that valuable berry-it that grows in wood. It is the Bilberry. A blueberry. A cowberry. A cranberry.
Raspberry wood. Sea-buckthorn berries.

I am SO jealous. And, BTW, my green gooseberries were so small they weren't worth growing anymore.

Brussels sprouts? Are those still legal? ;)

My friend with the terminal cancer, the only vegetable he likes, oddly enough, is Brussels sprouts.
