I love using basil, oregano, parsley, and garlic in an ice cube tray covered with olive oil. I froze them and then add one to two cubes when I brown meat or saute vegetables. They are wonderful and easy to use. The herbs taste fresh.
Lemon cucumbers and geherkin cucumbers are also at the top of my list. I try to plant the tiny geherkins somewhere where they are easy to see, but find they do better if they are running rampant and are hidden under the lemon cucumbers or beans.
I also plan on planting more of these little acorn squash. They worked great on the grill this winter. I have two left and I wish I had a few more. They were the perfect size and tasted great.
Loofahs are again on the list. I grew one once 3 years ago and haven't been able to replicate the success again. The loofa was wonderful and I used it of a long time. I want to grow several and give them away as gifts. Maybe this will be the year.
I will again grow my pumpkins in the green house and let them crawl out the top. I still have my platform incase one grows on the roof again.
Last, but not least, I plan on continuing with the sunflowers in the washtubs. They looked great this summer and it was fun to watch the goldfinches eat the seeds this winter.
That is a few of my gardening plans. It was nice to relax and think about warmer weather. I am feeling much better and even painted the upstairs bathroom this weekend. I also took Ella for a much needed snowshoeing trip.
What are you excited to plant in your garden this year? Do you have something that is tried and true and then something you haven't tried before?
