  2. Lynne says:

    I am growing a mix of leaf lettuces and spinach, and of course tomatoes (though it is too early to put them out, we got snow last night !!) I will also plant pumpkin seeds — both big ones and little ones. I have lots of herbs…..chives, spearmint, sage, parsley…to name a few. And then flowers :) In addition to the perennials, I will plant seeds for bachelor buttons, sweet peas, nasturtiums, larkspur, snapdragons….and anything else that I just must have! I always have lots of greenhouse annuals, too — I do love flowers!

  3. Jeannie says:

    My garden will have tomatoes, zucchini and lots of herbs - all grown in pots! I have new herbs which include lavender, cilantro, 2 types of basil, thyme, rosemary and oregano…to make the garden even prettier, I included pansies and gerber daisies! Its a Smile Garden!

  4. Kathleen says:

    Trying Sun Gold tomatoes this year. They are so sweet, it’s like eating candy.

    Tomatoes, Corn 2 varieties, jalapeno peppers, potatoes, and tons of flowers all over the yard.

  6. Melody Sorrell says:

    We planted cucumbers, zucchini, tomatos, herbs and lots of flowers.

  7. Cindy says:

    I am growing tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, carrots (so far). I just picked the rhubarb and the strawberries will be next. I also have lots of herbs, parsley, rosemary, lavendar, different varities of mints in containers (and some that have jumped out!) dill, bronze fennel (for the butterfly larvae), lemon balm, bee balm, catnip, and oregano. And lots of flowers. Blooming right now are poppies, peonies, some roses and a few annuals such as petunias and pansies. Cindy

  8. Joan Blum says:

    I’m in Minnesota and May has been unseasonably cold and damp. My perennials are up and growing but that’s as far as I’ve gotten. I hope to plant more flowers, herbs and maybe some peppers, etc. but it may be a couple of weeks yet before it’s warm enough to get my garden in full swing!!

  9. Melody Sorrell says:

    We planted cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, lots of herbs and flowers in our garden. I am looking forward to cooking with herbs.

  10. MICHELE PARKER says:


  11. Becky says:

    I just finished planting the veggies today! Basil, Green beans, Roma and Celebrity tomatoes, squash, cucumbers and zucchini and slim red, jalapeno and Ancho peppers.

    What a sweet giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win.

  12. Darlene says:

    In my garden this year I am growing beets, three varieties of heirloom tomatoes, plum tomatoes, green beans, broccoli, basil, curly parsley, lavender, sage, banana peppers, green bell peppers, cucumbers, and lots of flowers!

  13. Janet Sisk says:

    Last year was the first time I ever attempted vegetables. I had 3 tomatoe plants and a couple of pepper plants in the ground. Well, let’s just say it wasn’t quite a successful year for veggies. I ended up with ONE tomato! Now that is sad. I figured out too late that I was overwatering them. This year I am doing one pot of tomatoes and one pot of peppers. I haven’t decided if I will put them in the ground or not. Anyway, thanks for the chance to win a great prize. :D

  14. Our family planted a cute little salsa garden in our backyard! The kids have had fun watching the onions get bigger, watering and even pulling weeds. We are waiting for a nice rain storm right now! I am going to go and post your link to my blog now:)

  15. Thea Chambers says:

    The collection you are giving away looks cute and useable.

    We’ve planted nasturtium, begonias, bluebonnets, Shirley poppies, marigolds, zinnias, vinca, roses, tomatoes, eggplant (beautiful blossom-today) new strawberries, swiss chard, cabbage, peas, beets, onions, parsley, cilantro, and Hollyhocks from seed.

    Now I have to mulch a lot of this to keep it through the summer.

  16. Janice says:

    So far in our Western Oregon garden, we have planted a variety of herbs, a few tomato plants, lettuce, peppers, peas and a large potato patch. We are waiting for some consistent warm weather to plant corn, beans, squash, a variety of melons, pumpkins, strawberries, carrots, onions and other desires of our gardening hearts!

  17. Fran D says:

    I am growing Roma and Yellow Pear tomatos. In the flower beds, the daffy’s have come and gone, but the roses, heavenly as you walk up the front yard the scent hits you..of course the Johnny Jumpers are all over. My confused Christmas Catus is in full bloom? The Kadoa Fig is doing well, more jam for Christmas gifts! Thanks for the fun drawing it’s great reading what other creatives are doing outside!

  18. Mickie Miller says:

    My herb garden is full of herbs that I use for recipes and the big garden is full of peppers and tomatoes (will have to purchase onions as mine didn’t do to well this year) to can my favorite stewed tomatoes. Next there is the cukes for my famous pickle relish. Then there is the yellow squash, green peas, okra and my hubbies favorite water melons. Wow, that will keep me busy all summer!

  19. connie wasserman says:

    We planted the earliest garden aver for northwestern Ohio. Had to cover things last Sunday cause of frost. Everything did fine. Potatoes, peas, corn, greenbeans, radishes,lettuce,spinash, tomatoes, broccoli,onions, and zucchini, some herbs, stevia plant, new this year a root beer plant. Then some flowers.

  20. Rheannon says:

    We have our first garden this year and have 27 vegies and 48 flowers either planted or waiting in line! Broccoli, 4 heirloom tomatoes, potatoes, beans, snap peas, zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers… that’s all I can think of right now. We’re so excited.
    Thanks for this great drawing. Your images are priceless.

  21. Heather D says:

    I won’t be planting this summer as we will be moving and leaving my beautiful garden - but if I could I’d finish I’d add some of the giant gorgeous hostas I saw at the garden center the other day, a few more forget me nots, a miniature hollyhock, and a few more rose bushes. Then for the veggie garden it would be tomatoes, spaghetti squash, potatoes…oh so many things.

  22. Pat C. says:

    Can’t wait to get started planting our vegetable garden. The garlic is already up from last year and some parsley as well. We love tomatoes so there will be lots of them, big and little ones. We like to make salsa so some peppers both sweet and hot will go in. I want to try swiss chard this year and have seeds for the colorful Bright Lights ones. Sunflowers and beans will also be planted. Now all we need is some good weather and SUNSHINE !!

  23. What am I planting..well, my garden is a potted one!! I have hydrangeas..all different colors!! I love pansies and snapdragons, but I can’t get them to grow.
    Add my name to the list of hopefuls wanting to win !! Such a fabulous drawing..tahnks for the opportunity!

  24. Trish H says:

    What aren’t I growing? I always buy more vegetables, seeds and flowers than I can find room for or have time to tend to. Somehow the bounty is always delicious and we always have 10 times what we can eat. The neighbors love us, lol!

  25. Marilynn Hawhee says:

    This year so far we have planted tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, potatoes, herbs, cucumbers, eggplant and squash. We still have to plant beans and a few other things that grab our fancy. This year we have had a very wet and cold spring in the foothills of the Sierra in California. We haven’t had to water anything we’ve planted so far because it seems to rain about 3 days a week.
    I have enjoyed this web site very much and download the free downloads each month. And I have ordered items several times.

  26. deborah345 says:

    New house and lots to garden/landscape. Flowers and just a few veggie’s this year as I have more large trees that need to come down for better sunlight for the veggie garden space. Thus far in the ground are onions and rhubarb and some herbs for this year, next more sunlight and more goodies. Flowers are simple as our winters are pretty cold and our soil around the house area is too sandy for most things plus we are on a slope so I can’t even do grass - rock garden moslty with scattered evergreens and flowers, veggies are in the flat area.

  27. Sharon says:

    Here in Phoenix, we are experiencing a late start to summer. Although it has not reached 100 degrees yet, and we are enjoying the mild weather, we know the ‘blast furnace’ is right around the corner. What that means is that our growing season is basically done. I am now picking my pansies and putting them in my flower drying book to preserve them for some later-to-be-determined craft project and watering well the plants that are remaining (I have asparagus fern, elephant’s food & a small palm) in hopes of bolstering their hardiness to the upcoming heat. I am so jealous of those that live in areas where plants actually live through the summer! <3

  28. Marilyn Wolk says:

    I will be growing chocolate mint in my garden this year. My next door neighbor gave me some cuttings. It smells scrumptious.


  29. Mary Lou says:

    This year I am hoping to get a cheery, happy look with various vines. I am growing scarlet runner bean and purple hyacinth bean. As they grow, the vines get frilly and this creates a cozy addition to my cottage garden.

  30. Jo Haymaker says:

    Every year just gets better as we learn and dig more garden area. So this years hopeful bounty will be…strawberries, blueberries,raspberries,potatoes, beets, oodles of tomatoes, eggplant, leeks, cukes, basil, thyme (don’t we all need a little more “time”), lettuce, kale,
    squash of all kinds, spinach, green beans, some very slow moving peas, and lots of pretty flowers. Really the largest crop we seem to be reaping is the lessons of life that we learn together from working, laughing, fussing, and just enjoying God’s good earth!

    Oh, I forgot weeds too!

  31. Chris Aiton says:

    I have 2 tomato plants (and they both have tomatoes already) and herbs - rosemary (a huge bush), basil, and mint. thanks for the chance to win

  32. Liz says:

    No veggies this year, as we may be moving. But the our iris are beginning to bloom here in northern Indiana, and after them come our daylilies–about 2 dozen varieties! Red and orange and yellow and creamy white. It’s an absolute joy to drive up the street and see them all peeking out from the side yard. Impossible to have a bad day with all that color greeting you!

  33. Melinda says:

    I’ll have zucchini, tomatoes, acorn squash, and several different peppers in my main garden area. Then oregano, parsley, chives, and a few other herbs in a smaller garden along a walkway in my back yard. So far the only thing planted is one lone zucchini plant. I don’t want to plant too early as we’ve had some unusually cold weather for us, lately. I did an herb garden for the first time last year, and loved it! Looking forward to that again this year.

  34. Debbie says:

    We will be growing memories of my wonderful Dad who passed away last year on the 4th of July. We have a special “memories” seed packet we received from Hospice with a lovely perrenial flower mix…now his memory will live on not only in our hearts but also in our beautiful garden.

  35. Olivia Wolken says:

    I just harvested snow peas. I have tomatoes, zucchini and green beans blooming. I also grow garlic, herbs, potatoes, peppers and asparagus.

  36. Adrienne says:

    This year I am growing lots of things…tomatoes, basil, chilies (several types), thyme, curry plant, nasturtiums, radishes (almost ready to harvest!), and then the flowers - pansies which are just about finished for the year, snapdragons, sweet alyssum, cosmos, california poppies, arizona desert bluebells, brittlebush, and wow! all sorts of preennials and desert trees…

  37. Gracia Schlafly says:

    I have only container gardens: one for herbs, one huge pot of geraniums. I can cultivate, weed, feed, deadhead, all while sitting in my patio chair drinking wine!

  38. Anne says:

    Raspberries!!! (Along with my regular vegetable garden of goodies.) But my new passion is a big raspberry patch.

  39. julie m says:

    i will be planting beans, radishes, cabbage, kholrabi, kale, corn, tomatoes, peppers and flowers. then if the deer don’t jump over the fence and stomp thru the garden eating everything we will enjoy eating it all.

  40. Darlene J says:

    This year will be a small garden, but will have a few tomatoes, squash, peppers, and a new cucumber, that is called Lemon cucumber, is small, very yellow, looks like a large lemon. Grew a few last year, and they are very sweet. Also will have a few blueberries if the birds do not get to them before I do.

  41. Ganell says:

    I am new to gardening so I started small with a few varieties of flowers and I have some tomatoe plants, spinach, onions and beans out back. Thanks to my friend who help me start.

  42. Julie says:

    I have a foundation of perennials in my beds which I augment with annuals spanning the early, mid and late summer. It always makes me happy to see the perennials come back each year.

  43. LoriD says:

    In my vegetable garden I’ll be growing lettuce, tomatoes, peppers and jalepenos. And I love to grow lots of flowers- purple coneflower is my favorite.

  44. Claudia says:

    I am growing as much zucchini and as many varities as I can find room. I could eat it cooked or raw every day.

  45. I will be planting pumpkins this year. I will also be planting a lot of poppy seeds in the planters in my backyard. I have a small white iron frame child’s bed that I will be putting into the ground and planting flowers in it to make a “flower bed”. I have a nice backyard that I can sit in the shade of my avacado tree and enjoy watching the birds and lizards. I would also like to try growing raspberry bushes again. I tried several years ago but they never took.

  46. jeanne says:

    squash, tomatoes, green beans all in containers. Every spring I start out with my own compost. And my love for Sunflowers have them all around the house.

  47. redzinnia says:

    I am a flower fanatic and already have 6 different roses, peonies, evening primroses and Shasta daisies currently blooming. So I will be planting purple coneflower, blanketflower for the first time, more daylilies and tiger lilies, petunias, sweetpeas, morning glories, moonflower and (surprise, surprise) zinnias. Then if there is enough room I will plant lettuce, chives and at least 1 tomato plant. I just love the growing season!

  48. Nancy Goldstein says:

    My garden is mostly perennials. I am also planting tomatoes and basil and Italian parsley which are the mainstays of our summer dining.

  49. Ute Scherer says:

    Butterflies, butterflies, butterflies! My girls love butterflies! So I will be growing everything which butterflies love - lots and lots of nectar-rich flowers. And where there are butterflies, there must be caterpillars - so I’ll leave a little patch of nettles for them. I’ll also be growing lots of different berries for me and my girls - and the birds, of course

  50. Sandra says:

    I am growing tomatoes, chives, parsley, basil, sunflowers, geraniums, panseys, lavender and all kinds of leaf lettuces. I can’t wait for harvesting so I can have a truly fresh homemade salad with most of these ingredients. No, I don’t have a big space either, most of these plants are in containers on my patio.
