What to plant in my garden now

Our green thumb is going back to its roots, literally, when we begin adding a true vegetable garden to our property at the end of this month. For my part, I have a lot of things that will be going into the ground, but some of them are not plants at all. They are foraging items! Hens, chickens and ducks are what we will be getting our garden fix from, but as for plants, I do not expect to be limited to the traditional crops for the northern region of our state.

Apples, peaches, pears and a pear tree will be coming in. The baby blue delphinium is waiting to plant this spring in a spot where the crabapple will be planted. The small pine that I had planted last fall has been waiting patiently for the perfect time to put forth a new growth. I’ll be adding that to my list. The meadow oregano (see photo below) is waiting to be planted somewhere along the border.

As for the bunnies, they are still hatching and raising their babies. They have been cooped up, and we would not be surprised if I find baby bunnies running around the back of the garden this week! We do have the area of fence that we are keeping them penned in contained, and it will remain that way until after the baby bunnies are weaned and at least for the summer. If I have any babies running around that area, I will do my best to pick up after them, and we will try to figure out what the best solution would be. I do not know if the babies will be weaned, or if they will be an annual addition to our yard. It’s an interesting problem to solve!

So here are some photos of what we are looking to see take root:

So why not check out my Pinterest board for some more images of plants to put into the ground this spring?

These are pretty things to see this time of year. Enjoy. Our berries are doing well here. I just posted about them too. I did see on your page you have dried strawberry powder. I’ve been looking for something like that. I think I’ll try it out. Have fun gardening!

Hi Amy,

If you find that powder helpful, please let me know if it works for you. Sometimes we try things without knowing for sure what will be best for us. If you have tried it and it works for you, then please do let me know. Have a great day!


I am a mostly a hobby gardener with plants I had laying around or donated to the local flower and garden center. They give me a chance to try out something new.

The plants you have listed do not look familiar to me. The ones I have seen in stores or bought at nurseries are the cherry plum and black raspberry. I have planted them for years. It does not matter what variety is planted, it seems to grow well in my area. We have had very cold winters, and it seems to help if you water the plants early in the morning before the day gets too warm. I water daily, every day, although it does depend on how dry the ground is. At least once a week during the spring and summer, water the shrubs.

My peppers grow well in the raised beds. I have planted hundreds of them over the years. If you need a ground cover for the peppers, I recommend creeping Perpetual Bellflower or Peas and Violets. When they start to bloom, the whole bed will be covered with all kinds of colors. I would suggest putting several in the back of the raised bed. I have some creeping Perpetual Bellflower and I have just planted a few for the side of my raised bed. I was thinking of using them for edging and probably keeping some up against the fence.

I like the black raspberry and some of the roses I have planted. The one I planted this year is the gold and black bim mini. When it gets big enough I will get pictures of it and post them on my blog.

Hope I helped. It is great fun to see how the plants grow and how well they do. It is like opening a door to a new world. I enjoy it.

Hi Sheila,

We will definitely be planting the cherry plums. I have only planted a few of them, but they are doing great. I love the idea of a bed of bellflowers. We need more options for colors. I will have to get some and plant them in the back of our yard. They are so prolific. Thanks for the information!

I have a plum tree I planted a long time ago and it has been bearing for years.

I remember when the family dog ate one of the plums and the family had a plum pie recipe. It was delicious!

Your comment reminded me to share one more plum recipe. I will never forget the one I had years ago. It’s from an old Civil War era cookbook. It’s still a wonderful recipe. Here’s the recipe: “make a clump of bread crumbs, then moisten with milk and add one egg. Rub butter over the surface and sprinkle with sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Bake in a hot oven and serve on a dish with whipped cream.”

So I would assume you are familiar with the recipe then? I would love for you to give the recipe a try and let me know how it turns out!

Thanks for taking the time to respond.
