Gardeners, what are you planting this year?

We've been in our home a bit over two years now and are finally tackling some of our garden areas.

Last year, we planted some sage, oregano, and rosemary... the rosemary really took off, and I think the sage and oregano will do fine.

This year, we've added a couple blueberry and raspberry bushes. In a couple stone planters (because they wouldn't survive the harsh winters of Alabama), I've got a new Meyer lemon tree and I'll be adding a Kaffir lime tree next week.

The wife wants to add some strawberries in the back, and this fall I'll add some bay laurel and probably some garlic.

I'm also trying to decide if I want to remove the solo fig tree (I think they're kinda ugly) or add another one (I do like me some fresh figs, but they're not self pollinating).

Home gardeners, what's on your to-do list?

After that, it's going to be a full slate of herbs, tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant and the like. I keep going back and forth on grapes, so I'm still not sure if I'll add them this year.
It takes a good 3-4 years on the grapes to start getting some decent crop. If you are thinking about it, I'd get started sooner rather than later.

Thanks for the advice. The back and forth is because of space limitations. I'm just not sure if we've really got the space for doing grapes on the scale we were thinking. I think I'll talk to my brother about using part of his place for the grapes. He's got land that he'll probably never use.

Sweet corn, green peppers, banana peppers, tomatoes, grape tomatoes, radishes, beans, and some leaf lettuce and onions is always more work than I'll want.

I'm hoping the 2 year old blackberry patch produces this year, the heat and drought really held it back last summer.

I've wanted to add some Cherry trees to the already established apple, pear, plumb, & persimmons but I need to wipe out an old strawberry bed to make the mowing easier and I highly doubt I get around to it this spring.

I cuss the work every summer, but it's rewarding and somewhat of a stress reliever.

Half mile of red and white potatoes yesterday. A couple strawberry plants, carrots, spring greens, few rows of garlic ( last fall), herbs, and some other shit. ****in plowed a good chunk for this year already. Split time last week between live stock and garden and that's tough when you have hundreds of animals. 3000 sq ft green house we put in is gonna be a hoot.

I've always thought a greenhouse would own shit, but I can't think of an economical way to make it withstand the wind.

I have a family member with several in Oklahoma and they can't either. You should see the pics they text every few months when a storm blows the shit into the fan. Once the plastic goes it throws their special little herbs and seasonal flowers all over the place.

A couple years ago a wealthy farmer in South Dakota set his 17 year old daughter up with one of the first large scale pole barn type of greenhouses I'd seen. The clear plastic panels looked exactly like the skylights on our Morton buildings, but thicker and obviously clearer. The university of Missouri used the same style of building, but much smaller, to do some research in too. I'd hate to see the initial investment cost though.

Not technically gardening more landscaping but I'm putting in some ornamental pear trees and a locust, they always look good and don't have terribly invasive root systems

Just curious, but how do you keep the squirrels out of all of your berry bushes? I've tried spray, chicken wire and BB gun (and they destroy my tomatoes also).
