So, what are everyone's gardening plans for this season?

Our gardening is seriously curtailed. Due to my recent surgery, I'm not physically in shape to do much. Plus the land where we had our big garden is being sold, and we've lost the rights to it.

Instead we're just doing a bit of this and that in raised beds and containers lined up along the driveway. Two of them are devoted to alliums (garlic in one, onions in the other) that are already planted. We've got two containers with snap peas, that are doing very well. Then, after last danger of frost, we'll put out a few tomato and pepper plants.

That and the herbs are pretty much it for this year.

Got my planting done at last! Planted everything at once, so I hope at least SOME things went in at the right time, in the right way. I did add extra fertilizer to the ones that called for "rich soil." Need to buy seeds to replace my parsley and thyme. But this year I've planted: a potato, peas, beans, carrots, tomatillos, green onions, lettuce, spinach, purslane, sorrel, salad burnet, larkspur, and snapdragons.
Depending on what happens on the tomato front, (my sister promised me a plant or 2) I may plant basil with it/them.

I'll probably just do a bunch of herbs.

Our weather seems to have finally stabalized, so I'm hoping to get everything planted by the end of the week. 

As noted, our gardening is seriously curtailed this season. I've two beds with garlic and onions doing nicely. I have to put the finishing touches on a third bed, which will be used for beans. Tomatoes and peppers will go in containers, with basil sharing space with the toms.  Cucumbers and Corsican Flat (aka Canteen) gourds will go on trellises at the back of the alliums beds.

Amish Snap peas are doing very well in containers, growing up modified tomato towers. They've been blooming for several days, and have started setting pods. 

My second-year turnips have gorgeous flower heads, and have started setting seed. 

Meanwhile, Friend Wife has done an incredible job renewing the herb garden, replacing some herbs and starting new ones as well. What's happily growing out there are chives, parsley, thyme, tarragon, hyssop, sage, lemon balm, oregano, lavender and mint. This week she'll transplant a rather large bed of calendula, surrounding the rosemary, which is in a separate location. 
But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thanket
