Gardener porn.

I'm already dreaming of spring where I can dig into that lovely plot-o-land in the backyard and plant those green goodies. I've been sketching out different layouts lately and narrowing down the veggies we will be growing next year. I know, I know....it seems like such a long time off, but I've read that some plants need to be started inside in January for planting in early spring!

 
I'm trying to only plant what grows well in the PNW so you won't see anything uber exotic - just the basics for this gal (and snap peas for Stella, that dog can't get enough!) Other veggies that have made the cut so far: green beans, carrots, corn, lettuce/spinach, squash, tomato and zucchini. Also considering cauliflower and broccoli, but I'm not sure if planting 4 or 5 plants is really worth it. I want plants that generate TONS of veggies people!
 
It's SO hard to not to want to buy 5 different kinds of carrots when flipping through these seed catalogues because, you know, buying 5 different carrot seeds is totally a normal thing. Oh man, this might become an obsession.

Have you had success gardening in the PNW? Any tips you can share?
