What is Going in the Garden in 2012?

Our oddly temperate winter weather has had me thinking a lot about the garden lately, so I figured I might as well put that to good use and plan out our 2012 garden. Some noteable changes over the last few year is that we are nixing the peppers. Only the hubby eats them and they have such nice ones at the farmer's market and in our CSA that it seems a shame to waste the space on them. We are also going to try pumpkins again at the end of the summer (but this time under heavily fortified row covers to keep the cucumber beetles and vine borer at bay). Finally we are going to try growing onions from seeds rather than from sets. We'll see how we do.
