It has been quite a few years since there was a veggie garden here!
Here's what I'll be planting/sowing this year:

Heirloom Radish 'German Giant'
Radish 'Round Black Spanish'
Lettuce~ Grand rapids looseleaf~and Romaine
Tomato 'Bush Beefsteak'
Zucchini 'Black Beauty' (one hill)
Cucumber 'Marketmore' (one hill)
Bush Bean 'Greencrop' and 'Improved Golden Wax'
Swiss Chard 'Bright Lights'
Squash 'Waltham Butternut' (one hill)
Parsnips 'Hollow Crown Improved'
Kohl Rabi 'Early White Vienna'
Parsley 'Moss Curled'
Root Parsley 'Hamburg'
Basil 'Cinnamon'

I will expand the upper garden in the next couple of weeks by another 6 or more feet. Cutting and pulling sod is very labor intensive since I move the sod where there's a bare patchs!!

Dang Ron that is hard heavy work but the garden spot will be beautiful. You sure are planting a lot of great veggies. My mom loved parsnips and I grew them for her every year.
Love the parsnips and the Swiss Chard . Ron that looks great. Please continue to sebnd us pictures.
Randy, they are so easy!
I pull them when they get to the size of a baseball!
You can either steam them, mash them, or grate them!
They do make a wonderful kohl-slaw! it is a very mild cabbage flavour!
Oh, I have tasted them and I think they would make an excellent additive to about any salad. But I could eat them just sliced and relish them.
Oh Kohl Robi is sooo good. I like to cube it and stir fry until it starts to get golden brown then toss in the chopped up leaves and fry them until very wilted, add a little garlic to the pan as you heat the oil.
