  1. I am growing spinach, radishes, carrots, lettuce, beans, peas, arugala, tomatoes and squash.

  2. Mary Palmer says:

    I’ve planted lettuce, chard, mesclun, beets, eggplant, and flowers in containers, baskets & the ground. Flowers include pansies, impatiens, a mixture of different begonias that I overwinter each year, coleus, roses, gerbera daisies, licorice plants and ivy for accents, diascia, geraniums, dianthus, martha washington geraniums and I’m not done yet.
    This is my favorite time of the year! I love when I can put all my houseplants outside. I love making new container arrangements and trying new plants and new flower colors. I shop many nurseries with a gardening buddy of mine. We are always on the lookout for something new to grow. Yeah for spring!

  3. Jacque says:

    In my garden are many herbs that I planted next year, as well as newly planted herbs and perennials that I am adding this year. We have 16 Knock-out rose bushes to plant, 12 miniature rose bushes, and pots and pots of annuals. I also have a little faux greenhouse made from old windows that I train vines on and place a hardy succulent plant inside. We are having a lot of landscaping done (stone) so we shall see if we can plant some tomatoes and peppers when it is finished.

  4. Carla H. says:

    I am limited to planting containers which are terribly hard to keep alive when Okla becomes so blazing hot, but again I’m trying flowers, vegetables and herbs..we’ll see how it grows this year. Beautiful blog giveaway, gardening at its best, as art!

  5. Mylyne says:

    I don’t have a lot of room for a garden, but this year, we are growing tomatoes. I say tow-may-tow, you say tow-ma-tow! :) Btw, I just adore your Garden Gift Set.

  6. Janet says:

    My husband does a lot of the cooking and is growing his own herbs and veggies this year. :)

  7. Maggie says:

    We planted flowers, flowers, flowers. I’d love to plant my grandkids there so I could see them any time I want.

  8. This year among the flowers in our perennial gaden are irises and tiger lillies. My favorite plant is what we believe to be an unexpected red- bud tree. In 2008 a redbud tree growing in another part of the yard was badly damaged in a storm. In 2009 we had the tree removed. The new little redbud is thought of as a gift from above.

  9. Beal says:

    I don’t have a garden — my back yard belongs to my sweet rescue dogs. :-) I did plant some potatoes, though, in a corner that the dogs don’t trample (so far!). I think I’ll try planting some rosemary next because I love they way it smells. Thanks for the giveaway!

  10. I have a smaller garden this year, but am growing basil, cilantro, rosemary, lavender, sage, oregano, kale, lettuce, geraniums…
    The roses, lilacs, wisteria, camelias, peonies, iris, daffs, viburnum and butterfly bushes are coming along nicely from past years of work!! We too have not had much sunshine—it actually snowed this week! So I probably will buy my tomatoes from the farmer’s market this year!

  11. Cindy Pointe says:

    I’ve decided to stick to just growing flowers this year after a flock of turkeys ate my tomatoes last year! The worst part was that they waited…lulling me into a false sense of security…until they were just about ripe before they devoured each and every one. They even ate the green ones. This year I’m just going to get my tomatoes from the Farmer’s Market!

  12. I seem to be growing weeds lately lol. My husband would love to find just the right roses to grow.

  13. Cindi says:

    My family and I grow a garden with my dad every year. He will be 92 years old this year and still loves to grow a vegetable garden. Dad also likes petunias planted in several containers throughout his yard. We grow, tomatoes of various kids, eggplant, green
    peppers, green onions, various lettuce types, spinach, collards and chard.
    Great prizes…Many thanks, Cindi

  14. Carol says:

    We always have strawberries and herbs. I’d like to grow some tomatoes too.

  15. Donna says:

    My husband said he’d plant a garden when he retired. He’s been retired five years and planted tomatoes and onions this year for the first time. I’m not able to do that myself so I’m happy and excited over this small effort. I plan on giving him all the support and encouragement I can and hopefully he’ll plant more items next year.

  16. Carolyn says:

    Lot of dill, basil, rosemary, cilantro and blueberries. Yum Yum!

  17. Kathy J says:

    This year I’m growing tomatoes, bell peppers, sunflowers and okra. Also a group of herbs for seasoning. Great prize packets, thanks for offering them in the contest. Can’t wait to get my other things out of the greenhouse. I love spring!!!!

  18. Joyce says:

    Our garden isn’t in yet (only onions) because when it is nice out, my husband is busy planting his acres & acres. After that… then my garden. :)

    I’ll have lettuce, spinach, & chard. The onions are already out - some for eating right away, some are long keepers for winter. Then green beans, tomatoes, zukes, cukes, watermelon, and a variety of peppers. Some mild & some hotter. ;)

  19. Loris Mills says:

    This looks like amazing gift sets :-)
    Thanks for the chance to enter. And I will definitely put a link to the contest and your blog on mine. As to my garden, I have cleaned most everything else out except for daisies that I love and some nastursiums that are growing from my neighbor’s yard. I am actually going to replant a seedling of another bush (?) I have growing of yellow flowers that the deer don’t eat…the bush has a really pungent smell. I have one bush and several new seedlings of these starting. And soon I’m definitely planting some sunflowers and more black eyed susans. I dream of planting more but that is for the future.

  20. Lilia Singh says:

    We’re growing three varieties of cherry tomatoes and one new plant, a yellow tomatoe. Also planted basil, parsley and one cucumber plant.

    My granddaughter comes for a month from TX to GA in July to stay with her Nana and PopPop. We tend to the garden and eat the tomatoes while we water and weed.

  21. Iris Soscia says:

    My “garden” will consist of a gerbera daisy planted in a big pot. Iris

  22. Sherri S. says:

    Cute giveaway! I’m currently growing artichokes (on their way out, but amazing to grow if you can); heirloom tomatoes; herbs; and star and moon watermelon (which I’ve never tried before!). And a cutting garden that has sunflowers, poppies, and sweet peas in it at the moment.

  23. Annemarie says:

    I am currently growing weeds. We will see what sprouts this fall when the pumpkins that I let go to seed try to grow. The only other things that have ever grown here are potatoes but had to move before they matured, so I dug them up so my 5 year old could see what happened.

  24. Marilyn Collins says:

    I am growing all sorts of flowers that will add beautiful color to my garden in the front and back of my house.

  25. [...] The Vintage Workshop is having a giveaway and they asked what is in my garden.  (I love their designs & books.  My altered denim jacket idea and images came from their books.) [...]

  26. Anna says:

    I am planting flowers this year and hoping to keep them alive! I don’t have a very green thumb.

  27. Barbara says:

    In previous years I just did tomatoes, basil, and a couple of herbs. This year I decided to heck with the deer and I’m going all out and save money. I’ve
    cleared an area in my flower beds and putting in a variety of edible vegies I
    normally buy. My deer fencing is up and so far so good. (My husband is just shaking his head)

  28. CJ Armstrong says:

    We will be planting lettuce, spinach, beets, carrots, yellow summer squash, zucchini squash, pumpkins, acorn squash, sugar snap peas, several varieties of tomatoes and peppers, eggplants, yellow and green snap beans.

    The SEEDS will be planted in the next week or so, but because we ALWAYS have a late frost in early June, the plants will not go in until about the 10th of June . . . yup, the 10th of June!!

    We live in SW Colorado at high altitude!

  29. Stephanie Mansdoerfer says:

    I want to plant lavender for the first time this year. I’ve been planning to do so for awhile and this is the year! I’ll also have Jersey tomatoes since I live in Jersey now and a variety of herbs. I’ll probably also plant a few peppers for my husband and for some pepper jam at the end of the summer! A few new flowers will probably round out my little yard. :)

  30. Janet Arons says:

    I have Big boy tomatoes, green beans, okra, peppers, melon & cuke, have had a garden for years. I pass the bounty along to friends and neighbors.

  31. Linda D. says:

    HI ! Thanks so for sharing!
    I’d love to plant “Sweet Peas”, the sweetest of plants; however we live in the Rocky Mts. and they don’t like it here; neither the heat nor the deer. Still I have my memories of childhood days in Kansas and the Sweet Peas grown there. Love, Linda

  32. Arleen Schindler says:

    This year we have expanded our garden to grow great veggies/herbs, etc. for our growing grandchildren. We have all the great vegetables, herbs, and now beerries too.

  33. RWoodcock says:

    I’ve planted geraniums, petunias, marigolds and have a beautiful potted fuschia. Bring on the sun!

  34. Siobhan says:

    I am trying an “Italian” garden this year with lots of different varieties of tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, eggplant, basil, mint, oregano, and thyme. There also seems to be a cat growing in there but that is just Brownie sitting on the sundial supervising my work…..maybe she is wondering when the catnip goes in?

  35. Carol says:

    Just planted sunflowers today. We grow mostly flowers with some strawberries and rasberries. Thanks for opportunity to win.

  36. barbara hopkins says:

  37. Nicki Stein says:

    If I had a garden to plant
    I would plant all that I can’t
    Apricots that blush
    All that is lush
    Love that would gush

    If I had a garden to grow
    I would plant all that I know
    “Lettuce” all have peace
    Kindness that would never cease
    Prosperity that would increase.

    If there was a garden to be had
    I would make sure no one would feel bad
    Everyone would feel “plum” fine
    Sickness would be on the decline
    Everyday the sun would shine.

    We can have such a garden today
    If there would be goodness in all that we say
    Watered by all our love
    Planted with faith in G-d Above
    Peace and Tranquiltiy shining all day

  38. Gina says:

    What a lovely site:)
    I am growing freshly planted Poppies and petunias! I wish to plant an herb garden, we will see how far I get!
    Wram regards, Gina

  39. Natalie Capps says:

    I am planting beans,peas, tomatoes, peppers, squash, flowers and herbs.

  40. kristi says:

    Thanks so much for the generous contest!

    This year my grandson and I planted container gardens - herbs and strawberries. We also made a terrarium he calls his “fairy garden”. My husband planted tomatoes - salsa is the plan for these!

  41. MARY CIPOLLA says:


  42. Paula Wharton says:

    I have a vintage rose that is a climbing variety of Dr Dan Fleet. My Mom had the real Dr Dan that had been her Mother’s. Every time I see it, I think of my wonderful Mom.

  43. Kim Campbell says:

    We don’t have the room, but I would do a vintage Victory Garden!!

  44. Shelley C says:

    I have gardens every year…veggie and flowers and we also have a roadside stand of corn and pumpkins. We’ve got our onions, garlic and potatoes in so far. If I ever get to the point where I can’t really garden any more, the one thing I HAVE to have is swiss chard…isn’t that weird? Have all the other regular stuff going in…will try cabbage as a new this year. Got a rhododendron for Mother’s Day, so that’s whats new in the flower gardens….hope it can take this cold climate~

  45. Kathy Kauth says:

    I am growing snow peas. 4 different types of lettuce, carrots, parsnips, herbs, beets, flowers.

  46. Kathie Brownlee says:

    Wow! This is my first summer in my new house. I’m out in what used to be a soybean field so veggies should grow well here. My sons built 3 above ground boxes for me and we had soil delivered to fill them since all the soil here is clay. Then I proceded to fill them with several types of lettuce, several regular and heirloom tomato plants, patty pan squash, herbs, lavender, eggplant, leeks, and catnip. We are all excited to watch the garden grow and hope we get lots of nice things to eat.

  47. Debra Bopp says:

    I will be planting a variety of flowers as well as tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. My garden space is small so most will go into containers and put up high so my two french bulldogs will not make a snack of them. They love vegetables and get a variety of them each day with their food!

  48. Jocelyn says:

    I am growing Tomatoes and onions this year. We had a larger garden last year, but it was too much to handle. So four little tomato plants are already blooming. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway.

  49. Trish says:

    I would love to win one of your fantastic give-aways!

  50. Cheri says:

    I am planting mint so I can enjoy sun brewed ice tea during our 100+ degree days of Arizona summer!
