Choices, Choices: What to Grow?

I wanted to write a post about how to choose what to grow in your garden, but I simply don’t think I can do a better job than Erica at Northwest Edible Life has done.  This post is particularly helpful for those who’re starting out with their gardens, or those who easily become overwhelmed when confronted with several hundred pages of vegetable seed catalogue that all begin to look alike.

The only thing I would have added to her recommendations – although she covers this in a subsequent comment – is to include something new in your garden every year.  It’s always worthwhile to experiment, because you never know if you’ve got the best lettuce variety for your space and your taste unless you have something to compare it to.

How To Pick Your Vegetable Seeds Without Going Crazy“Last year I just planted and prayed, stuff worked or didn’t. Now I have seed catalogs and am so overwhelmed I don’t know what to order.
