What We Plant in Our Vegetable Garden

Our Vegetable GardenNo food in the world tastes better than the food you grow in your own vegetable garden.

We have planted a vegetable garden on our homestead every year, for as many years I can remember.  I love having produce, fresh from the garden, to cook with.  Plus, I enjoy having canned, frozen, or dried fruits and vegetables that came from our garden all year long.

We are getting ready to plan this year’s vegetable garden.  As we were looking over last year’s crops, we thought it would be fun to share.

Here are some of the vegetables we planted in last year’s vegetable garden:

Sweet Corn


Green Beans


Green Bell Peppers

Cayenne Peppers


Butternut Squash

Summer and Zucchini Squash

Peas-Shelling and Sugar Snap


Bunching Onions

Yellow and Red Onions

About Nelle

I am Nelle. I grew up in rural, small town, Ohio. When I was young, I learned a lot about homesteading from my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, 4-H, FFA, and others around me.
Now, I’m all grown up, have 6 children of my own, and plan to teach them everything I know.

Here on Mama’s Homestead, we talk and write about homesteading, homeschooling, and kidsteading (homesteading with kids). We teach our kids about survival, self-sufficiency, gardening (vegetable, herb, flower), orchard, beekeeping, home keeping, soap making, harvesting, cooking, food preservation, livestock, nature, crafts, homesteading tools and wares, and more…
