Planting a Garden This Spring? Be Careful if You Plant These!
With us getting through the first year of COVID-19 in Missouri, this last year brought many people outside to plant gardens. If you're looking at planting one this spring, be careful if you are putting out some of these plants.
About six or seven years ago, my wife and I rented a house on 15th street by Bothwell Regional. It was a smaller house but we truly loved it. One particular year at that location we came up with the brilliant idea to plant some tomato plants. Now these weren't your usual variety of Beefsteak or Roma, no we had the bright idea to plant Cherry tomatoes and we had the even more brilliant idea to put out about six or seven of them.
We later found out that probably one, or maybe two, of the plants would have been enough to supply us with enough of the little boogers to last us through the summer. Needless to say, since that epic year of cherry tomatoes on 15th street, we haven't given it a second thought of doing it again.
We must have had at least enough of them to supply every household in a four block area. So with it being the time for many to start a garden we asked on the KIX 105.7 Facebook page this question-If you were to have a garden this spring, what would you plant?
Here's some of the answers we received:
Samuel D.P. - Tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, peppers, green beans, watermelon
Sherri E. - Tomatoes squash green beans carrots onions cilantro watermelon
Carol D. C. - Corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and cantaloupe. Is what we have seeds for
Diana S.Q. - Tomatoes. Cucumbers radishes. Lettuce. Green beans. Hot peppers. Bell peppers.
And I think this was one of my favorite answers. It came from Shirlene H. - I will eat out of your garden.
