If I had my own vegetable garden this year…

At the moment, I don’t have a backyard in which to grow vegetables. Additionally, I’m moving to a new state in the middle of the summer, which throughs another wrench in this year’s garden plans. Nevertheless, a favorite pastime of mine (and a form of self-torture?) is dreaming about which vegetables I would be growing.

Now, this is not my *dream* garden obviously…the list of vegetables (and varieties of those vegetables) that I want to grow in my backyard someday is extensive. But if I could just grow a few vegetables this year, these would be the ones I would pick.


Walla Walla Onion
Boston/Butterhead Lettuce
Zucchini
Sugar Snap Pea
Sungold Tomato
Butternut Squash
Winterbor Kale
Lemon Cucmber
Beet

This was really hard. I considered leeks, potatoes, carrots, rhubarb, asparagus….sigh… someday.

What would you grow in your garden?

  1. Wowww, Boston/butterhead lettuce beat out rhubarb and asparagus? That’s a shocking upset–I know how much you love rhubarb and asparagus. My top 9 would be potatoes, corn, asparagus, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, sugar snap peas, and chestnut trees. Chestnuts are a vegetable, right?

    • I decided that asparagus and rhubarb shouldn’t count because you can’t just plant them from seed and expect to harvest that season.
      And, no, chestNUTS are not vegetables. That’s cheating.
