What do you grow in your yard?
Do you grow vegetables in your yards? Which ones?
Yes we do, in our backyard we grow, grapes, oranges, peaches, guava, cucumbers, tomatoes and beans. We never purposely grew guava; we believe the birds seeded it for us; and it has indeed thrived.
I like that all your plants are in "plural form" :-) It tells me that you have lots of them. Good for you!
Maybe I should have mentioned that our front yard is a National Wildlife Foundation (NWF) recognized Urban Wildlife Habitat...
We grow several varieties of tomato, pepper, melon, and cucumber.
Plum, peach, apple mulberry, grape, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry.
Corn, potato, lettuce, tomato, rocket, pumpkin, squash, parsley, onions, shallots, radishes, ginger. Maybe more but tired of thinking.
Our yard is a certified backyard wildlife habitat, so we grow for animals and humans. Our front yard is for the animals with nectar plants, host plants, water and nesting boxes. Our backyard is for growing food for us. We have grown lettuce, radishes, tomatoes of different varieties, squash, potatoes, sweet potatoes, chives, and peppers. I am a wanne be homesteader, so we are trying to grow a large amount of food.
We have flower gardens in the front of the house and in the back we have two areas designated to grow food items. we have oregano, dill, sage, lettuce, tomatoes (cherry and romas) pumpkins (that are taking over everywhere) and in the back space we have potatoes, green beans, squash, carrots, peas and sunflowers...next year it will be bigger and more planned out seeing as this is our first year here.
what you can grow in your garden depends on the soil and the altitude. Where I live now, Western Peloponese, we can grow anything in appropirate soil. In my yard I have a lemon and a fig tree and rose bushes. In my village which is high up in the mountains we can grow anything from potatoes to garlic. But citrus trees and sensitive plants can't prosper due to the altitude (too cold)
Tomatoes, peppers, corn, squash, cukes, strawberries, pecans, cabbage, broccoli, onions, and herbs for cooking.
