Choosing Plants for a Vegetable Garden

We are getting ready to plan our garden for next year. This is our second year. Last year, we had a great success with broccoli, but we noticed that it was done producing by early to mid summer. What can we plant in it's place? Other items we are planning on growing so far are zucchini, green peppers, jalapenos, and tomatoes. Thanks.

You have the right idea. You can also plant any kind of peas,beans & other veggies,call your county extension office they will send you all the info you need on gardening. You can grow food all the time, greens, onions & etc in winter time & the above in summer time, good luck.

Above writer has great ideas. You can also read the tag on your brocolli starts/seeds and if it's not a hybrid let one or two plants go to seed, and then use the dry seed to start more brocolli in about September for a fall crop.
