How does your garden grow

Recommended Posts

Tomatoes but you will have to water

Cherry?

Grape?

Heirloom?

 

I’m fine watering time to time, I just don’t want it as a daily chore. It gets hot. Hot enough to wilt flowers and plants I had to move to other spots.

 

And do woodchucks, squirrels, skunks eat tomato plants? I don’t have to worry about deer since I’m fully fenced in

Definitely do a cherry tomato plant and then some beefsteaks or early girls. I never have problems with critters eating them

I hear RedRyder BB guns are a fun way to protect your plants from little critters.

I would go with a watermelon or cantaloupe or squash type thing that grows on vines. Sounds like your space isn’t prepped so this would be the easiest to prep.

Yea I contemplate this every year then realize we probably spend $8/week on tomatoes, so why waste all the time and effort to save $8 lol

Does weatherby make a pellet gun? Otherwise we need a new plan.

Fresh vegetables have a noticeable better taste then supermarket vegetables.

And a little something I like to call “satisfaction”. Don’t sleep on growing tomatoes in pots, you can have them near the hose if they’ll get sun

Biz and whomever. I’ve ordered from this place in the past. Seems good. They had or maybe still have plants you can order. I wouldn’t plant a melon of any kind. Tricky to get a finished product. You like kale? Grows well and easy. Not bad in a salad either.  I ordered Bulgarian carrot chilies and bumblebee cherry tomatoes seeds from this place a few years ago.

Damn, I better get moving here. Big plans this year after the BS lately .. become more self sufficient. Anyone dehydrate and store, or freeze and store there veggies/fruits etc? Like to be able to grow and sustain some throughout fall/ winter. Have plenty of room to grow, in some great black muck soil.

Crossman is only acceptable pellet gun. Co2. Everyone knows that.

I do.  Freeze and store. Got lots of apples and peaches frozen. Mrs bundy makes apple rolls. Put cored apples in vitamix or equivalent. Grind to a mush. Add honey from your bees. Mix up. Put wax paper down on your jerky dehydrator trays. Pour on mixture, level and dehydrate per your machines instructions.  I’ve got a ton of this stuff. Can use apple pear peach whatever you have.  Makes great stand or blind snacks.

started my lettuce, spinach and peppers in the seed starters. Lettuce already poking through. Raked the garden beds and fixed some fence so I can plant some corn too. Another week or 2 and stuff will go in the ground I think.

previous home owner left one of these. Problem I have is my OCD. Our garden is on the other side of the pool. To keep it hooked up, I'd have to run a hose across one of our entrance paths and I just can't have that haha. If I had a dedicated spout over there or a different setup I'd be all in. Soaker hoses work best. 

At my last house the guy had a rain barrel setup that was sweet. Gravity fed from the shed to soaker hoses. Just turn it on and let it go. no expense.

disagree, this thing as slayed dozens of critters. Single break action "pump" and you're good.

I’m not sure where Dicksville is :rolleyes:  but setting plants out in a week or two is way early.   You need to wait until all danger of frost has passed, usually mid-May or later in Central NY.  Maybe a little bit sooner in southern NYS.

I'll take that as a no on the weatherby pellet gun.
