We finally got around to planting this week. A bit later than normal, just didn't have the time earlier. We put out peas, potatos, onions, carrots, corn, and beans. Just after I finished today, we got about 1/2 inch of rain to settle everything. The strawberry bed is looking like it will be good crop again.

Last several years we didn't keep track of what we planted the year before. So we would just grab some seed and hope its good. So this year we got it all wrote down. Hopefully it will make next year's selection easier.

I hope your garden does well this year.  The rain is a good way to start.

Your list matches ours pretty close.  You've just forgot the tomatoes.  What is summer without garden grown tomatoes?!?

Still too early for planting here. I think we had frost every morning last week.

We didn't forget the tomatoes. Wife got tired of trying to grow them, we had heavy rain and rot one year and fungus the next. With our poor track record, she thought it might be best to skip it this year. I think it was about 3 weeks since we had frost. It was just staying on the cool side for a while, now this past week it was in the high 70's. Yesterday was 79*, just right for gardening.

Have not done mine yet. Was going to this week, BUT... we are forecast'd for a couple more nights below freezing. I wonder if I well get one in this year at this rate. Sure hope it does not kill the fruit trees I planted with buds on them. Going to be another very short summer. Good luck with yours.

I was down checking the garden this evening. The plants are starting to pop through. Weeds are growing the fastest, again.

Just got to figure out how to keep the dog from playing in it, she loves to just rip through it.

We got out taters and onions in now, still too early to put plants in. So far my trees have survived which is a huge relief.

Good luck with your garden, nothing is better than munching on your own veggies/fruits.
