Our garden

It's been a while since I've thought about plans for the garden, but now that April is here, we need to plan, start digging, and generally get ready to plant stuff come May.
So, here are a few things I'd like to grow:
  • a fruit tree - apple?
  • tomatoes
  • green beans
  • cucumbers
  • spinach (I think that should go in the ground soon - maybe a planter box?)
  • sweet potatoes
That's probably a good start for this year. I do need to get a few more herbs too. I really like the herbs both as useful in the kitchen and because they smell pretty and usually take little care. 
I think if we get an apple tree, we either need to plant 2 or see if any near neighbors have one that will help cross-pollenate. A dwarf variety would be best both for size and because it would produce fruit sooner (3 years versus 10 for a full-size tree.) Time to start researching trees!
