We set aside about 1/3 of our yard for this, so it is a pretty good sized garden.  Here's what we (I mainly mean I planted, but dh helped with the onions):

 

Onions (white and red)

Garlic

Red Potatoes

2 Raspberry bushes

1 Blueberry bush

1 Blackberry bush

2 rows of green beans

 

1 Row each:

Peas

Ornimental peppers

Tomatoes

Romaine Lettuce

Leaf Lettuce

Eggplant

Orka

Broccolli

Swiss Chard

Pumpkins

 

2 hills each:

Cantalope

Zucchini

Spaghetti Squash

 

1 each:

Artichoke

Hot Pepper

Cauliflower

Red Cabbage

 

 

The one each thing was dh's idea.  My garden is long and narrow, so the individual rows aren't too long.  It took me several days to plant this stuff.  I sure hope it grows.  Dh's onions and garlic are taking off like wildfire thanks to the rain for the past two days.  I think the asparagus and strawberries he planted died.  He also plans to plant carrots.  i have no idea where.  I think things are pretty packed as is.

Looks good :)  So far the girls have planted zucchini, carrots, melons, eggplants, sunflowers and wildflowers in the yard.  

We also planted strawberries.  We still plan on planting tomato's, green peppers, cucumbers and eggplant in my hanging planters.  Haven't gotten around to it yet.  I plan on doing those after payday.   I don't really have the money to buy the plants right now so it just needs to wait. :)  

Let us know how you do.

From the looks of the stuff you have on your garden I think your planning on running a farm. lol . Seriously though, I wish I have the time to do these tasks. Just could hardly find a time to do it. Poor me.

That's awesome! A garden is on my list of things to do with the kids this summer. But seeing how it snowed yesterday I'm not ina  hurry to plant.
