I would have to say my favorite veggie this year to grow would be green snapping beans. I love all the things I grow but for some reason I have craved green beans since last growing season. I love growing them but hate picking them and snapping them. bye

I love eating green beans.  I have to say tomatoes cause I think they are more of a challenge.  I like trying different things with different verities, seeing what works good.  Back home we used to compete on who could get their tomatoes to ripen first.  I also like corn, but then, anything I can eat while I'm out. I mean a person could starve walking from our house to the barn,  shocked  my garden is my oasis.

Tomatoes are my thing. I've spent 3 years finding the right varieties for my area and get them started indoors late in March.  I give alot of plants away every spring, I start probably 66% more than I can use.  But everyone loves the plants.  

I had a groundhog eating all my beans last year. I'll try again this time.

Cucumbers are also my favorites. Lots of pickles around here.

I'm a pepper guy.  From hots to sweet and everything in between.
If we weren't so soil challenged here in the mountains, I would be growing a lot more stuff.

I'm a giant pumpkin grower myself. Been at it 9 years now, and still learn something new each year. It's amazing to see growth spirts of 25 pounds per day for a couple weeks. My personal best so far is 1150 pounds, but keeping fingers crossed to hit the 1200 pound mark this summer. Steve

Hi pumpkinpiper,

How much better do pumpkins do when pollunated by bees, or do bees mess with them. What kind of honey would one get from pumpkins?

I am with you Robo. I like the peppers, however I lean more towards the hot ones.

I like to grow pumkins but are soil isnt sandy enough. I grow 15 tomatoe plants and last year we probley went over the 3000 marker. I love to plant and walk around and watch my babies grow. I love to pick some plants like zucchinii and cucumbers and corn but not beans, love all the taste though.

Beets are what I tend to get most of, whether by plan or accident, I don't know.  And those are what my partner and son like the most.  My daughter likes the brussel sprouts, and they are kinda fun to grow, because they form is such a weid way.  I like peas, but I just can't seem to get a whole lot of yield from them.  Green beans are a favorite too, canned green beans remind me of the meals my mom and grandma made when I was little.

I love them too! I love it when you eat them over the sink with your sleeves rolled up and the juice is dripping down your arms into the sink.
