This year's Garden.

A friend told me about this amazing online garden planning tool. I had so much fun playing around with different configurations for my two 4x8 beds. And until I visited, I had no intention of planting nearly this many things! We’ll see how it actually pans out in real life.

The beans will be half regular green beans and half soybeans (the crop I’m most excited about). In fact, the majority of these vegetables I’ve never tried to grow before, so this will be an adventure. Since we’ve been making an effort to eat more vegetables lately, I thought I should try growing things I wouldn’t normally buy — like eggplant and summer squash. Now, if they grow, we’ll have to eat them in some form or another. I’m hoping to make this one of these days.
