POTs - that's all I have room to grow in, so I plant Basil, grape tomatoes and current tomatoes. Henry's is only a couple of blocks away.

I try to time my plantings so that I can get more things in over the seasons. I've had white and yellow onions growing since last fall that'll be ready just as the okra starts getting tall. I just put up several rows of beets and potatoes making room for winter squash and bush beans I have started in pots. I still have a few collards hanging on but most everything will be gone before the winter squash and pumpkins take over. I also have two tomato plants. Two plants will make more than enough tomatoes for my family.

So I guess my list would be:

collards, onions, beets, potatoes for winter and early spring
tomatoes, squash, bush beans, and okra for late spring/summer

Good! If you have any doubts, just ask my cousin how he enjoyed prison!

If I could only grow five things it would be:

1. Tomatoes
2. Zucchini
(If I only grew two, those would be the two)
3. Onions
4. Banana squash
5. Watermelon

I would plant the expensive things that I love but don't buy often:

cipollini onions
porcinni mushrooms
morels
artichokes
fingerling potatoes

That's a good idea. I researched morels to see if that was something I could grow but it's mysterious to how these grow, why, when, and how long it takes to figure out.
The onions and potatoes would be fairly easy.

I can grape leaves--because they are so expensive to buy canned and free along fence lines, the best time to pick them is June when they are tender, canning them is easy.

Trust me, it is pert near impossible to intentionally grow morels. At least, it has not been done before. That remains one of natures mysteries. You can only find them in the woods.

5? 5? No fair! I would just be getting started with my herbs.
*Sigh*
1. Tomatoes for sure. I haven't had a good home grown tomato in years. I tried growing them in Florida and the mocking birds would eat them just as they were getting red.
2. Umm, same with Silver Queen sweet corn.
3. Onions, what would life be without onions?
4. Green beans
5. Peppers, any kind I could get my hands on. Hot,bell, etc.

And then plz someone show me where to find the cattle seed, cause I cain't live without a hamburger or steak.

This guy has been trying since 2007--still no morels . I hope he didn't pay a whole lot of moolah for his kit.

My Morels
