  1. Dear Tatyana, As I think you probably know, I do not grow any vegetables, largely through lack of space, but those in your collage look particularly scrummy. Happy sowing, and later eating, to you!

  2. Aren't you just the most helpful today? Where was this post last weekend when I needed it? LOL....going to check it out now! Thanks...

  3. Quite a number in the list is growing in my garden. Spinach is the prolific. Their reseeding ability is so fantastic. ~bangchik

  4. Wow, you're going to have a wonderful garden. Thanks for the link, I just checked what to plant in our area and it looks good to me. The problem we have is critters eating produce right as it's about to be picked, GRRR. I'm wondering IF we could grow veggies and herbs in our screened room.

    Thanks for the inspiration.


  5. Yay..what a fabulous reference! So exciting to begin to plan and sow! Thanks T....perfect are terrific!

  6. Hi Tatyana. You can plant so many more vegetables in your zone a lot earlier than we can. You are going to have a good variety in your garden. Fresh green beans sounds so good. Happy sowing!

  7. Isn't it great we can think about sowing again.

  8. Do you think I can put the seeds on top of the snow and that they will germinate when it mealts? Just kidding! It'll take a while before I can saw anything outside this year I'm afraid, Thang god for flourusental tubes and heat maths / gittan

  9. Your veggie gardens - wow!

    I wish, I wish, but I have deer and bunnies here, and only two of us humans to eat what we grow, so we visit the local farmer's market.

  10. This will be our first year of screening those dastardly deer out of our new vegetable garden area. We have seeds or seedlings already for all of the PNW top 10, and more, now we just need to finish building the raised beds. I hope our veggies look half as good as yours once they all get going!

  11. Nice, nice! I'll be heading on over to the link.

  12. Your vegetable plantings look delicious and gorgeous.

  13. I wish I could so seed but I still cannot see the soil, just snow!

  14. I haven't done any outdoor planting yet, but I've got lots of seeds germinating on my windowsills. They'll be transplanted outdoors when the weather warms up a little more.

  15. Your kitchen garden sounds delightful, Tatyana. I have never grown veggies though lots of herbs and occasionally lettuces. I am gone so much throughout the summer, with all the varmints hovering, I would have nothing left but the healthiest critters around!

  16. Thank you!! Thank you!! This guide is so good for the noice gardener!

  17. I love your garden photos... wow! Everything is so spotlessly yummy looking. Thanks for the Mother Earth News local planting link, too. I had some people asking me about this last night and I'm going to share it with them. :)

  18. Hi Tatyana~~ Your photos eliminate any and all dispute: vegetable plants can be just as beautiful as any ornamental. Those succulent, blue leafed brassicas, domes of basil and the carrots and radishes... all so lovely. I hope you'll keep your readers posted on your vegetable growing progress.

  19. Your veggies are beautiful! Our list for this month is very similar to yours, although some things are already finished -- like peas! If I were to plant now, apparently they'd never make a crop before the heat sets in. The Pacific Northwest, on the other hand, is pea-growing paradise, from what I understand, and that list of regional favorites confirms it. :)

  20. aloha tatyana,

    wow, that is a list...i need to get my veggies started...too much rain happening lately!

    nice post!

  21. How great it is to live in this climate. I've planted peas, radish, oriental greens, arugula, spinach, lettuce, and strawberrys outside already - and I'll be harvesting in no time at the rate they are growing!

  22. As I was searching for information this week, I came across your blog. What a blessing! I am a beginning gardener but also the teacher in charge of our school garden. Half of our school garden is landscape and the other half vegetable boxes. All of the produce from the garden is donated to the local food bank. Your list really inspired me and was a great resource for our garden and green teams. Thank you!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
