Lots of Veggies and Barley Soup (DF)

This comes out REALLY thick... CHOCKED FULL of veggies.  I actually like it thick and I like the flavor with so many different veggies.  It also makes a GREAT topper for a baked potato since it is SOOO thick !! 

1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 sweet potato, sliced or chopped
1 white potato, sliced or chopped
1 cup carrots, sliced (I actually used a can of sliced carrots with liquid)
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 can green beans (with liquid)
1 can tomatoes, corn and okra (with liquid)
1 10-oz package frozen spinach
1/2 to 1 cup dry pearl barley (the more barley the thicker it will be)
2 to 3 cups water or vegetable broth (I used tomato juice)
1 Tbsp minced jar garlic
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried rosemary
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 bay leaf
1 Tbsp dried parsley flakes

Put everything in a crockpot and cook on low for 10-12 hours.
