    My garden wasn't big enough to have a Top 10

    But, I would have to say my top #1 would be the jalapenoes I had. They continued growing into winter even after my tomato and cucumber plants died and I had put them to great use as toppings for pizza and used them in mexican food (casa diaz).

    Next growing season I am considering of planting strawberries. Anyone pro in that area mind giving me some tips on growing those?

    Got chili seeds now, but I am alittle late... Should have started them a while ago to plant outside the 1 of june (That date is deemed the earlist to be secure from frost). But I will plant now and hope for the best.

    In no particular order

    Tomatos, easy to grow lots of produce, variety of uses.

    Cucumbers, easy to grow, lots of produce

    Silverbeet/Kale - Once again it just grows so easily and if you cut the leaves rather than pull up the whole plant it will renew itself all year round.

    Zuichinni -Very easy to grow (are you detecting a trend here??) Lots of produce.

    Eggplant - See Zuichini

    Capsicum and Chillis - I like things hot and I love drying chillis

    Green Beans - Pretty easy to grow

    Cabbage - because I am German Ja!

    Lettuce mostly the Italian types iceberg is bland

    Spring Onions

    Herbs - Parsley, Sage, Oregano, Thyme
    I grew up on a belief of honour, courage and the old world values. The world isn't about that anymore, preferring to die a slow death of fast food and cheap thrills.

    All I can say is "crap" and lots of it, preferably composted and mulch the plants with straw.

    Terracing works well with strawberries.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Corgi helped in the garden then passed out. Lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, peppers, onions, chives, garlic, sweet peas, beets, and carrots behind him. We are going to try to grow all year this year because we have an extreme climate. It does freeze though here-so we will try a tarp. Someone wants me to build a greenhouse, but it's not happening today

    I have a medium sized home here in Arizona. Instead of a garden I have a grove, I have Tangelos (grapefruit-tangerines mixed), Pecan trees, and a few watermelons on the side of the house.

    My garden is fairly small, probably very small by US standards. But I like to grow as much as I can.

    1. My top two crops this year will be potatoes and tomatoes.
    2. French beans.
    3. Peppers.
    4. Lettuce and cucumber.
    5. Peas, peas, peas.
    6. Radishes.
    7. Strawberries, grapes, blackcurrants.
    8. Carrots.
    9. Lots of herbs - parsley, fennel, rosemary, thyme.
    10. Native wildflowers. Lots of them. For bees and butterflies.

    Plus cottage garden flowers such as lupins, sweetpeas, delphiniums, nasturtiums, geraniums, buddliea, lavender, peony, veronica etc etc.

    Sorry, I'm not very good at keeping myself to a top 10.

    My tomato plants havnt had any flowers yet, so dosnt look like they are gonna fruit. What should I do? They look fine otherwise, they get alot of sun since they are by the window and I water regurarly. I guess I should fertilize.
