4/9 - turned the garden over. 16x6ft from last year. pH is solid so I won’t use lime like last year. Might expand to 24 or even 32 x 6ft this year. We’ll see.

Getting there. Tomatoes and eggplant are a little ahead of schedule. I started hardening them off today for about thirty minutes. Started some flowers and squash inside yesterday. My wife decided to turn down the heat in my grow room (spare bedroom) which killed about half my pepper seedlings so I had to start over a bit.

Someone is excited about his new bed... started some herbs, and a few peppers up on the deck.
Peas and tomatoes are ready to go in once dirt gets delivered. Looking for a few more things to go in this year. Any ideas for something a little different.


Oh have chard, kale and some lettuce started already too

My favorite from the garden is green onions.  Great as a side or for cooking.

Nice. Last year was my first year but my zucchini did really well. Basil (for pesto), and CUCUMBERS

1 hot pepper plant will produce plenty of peppers for cooking in 1 household.  (typically.  a professional chef may use more!)

Not a bad result after 12 days of just sitting on a window sill ..eggplant and jalapeño are always slow starters

my eggplant and sweet peppers finally popped after a week or so. They always make me worried I screwed something up.

 

I extended the garden a little further with some additional fencing and spread compost. I'm ready to go, but of course it's 30's and maybe snow this week. I learned my lesson and I'll wait to put anything in the ground.

I've been using this product in my vegetable garden for a few years now. I've had good results with it or I'd like to think so because it's kind of pricey.

Just got these 2 monstrosities delivered yesterday (a local guy builds them). They are 4x8, and probably 2 1/2-3 feet tall. Any suggestion of how to fill them up? I'm going to start throwing yard debris in and some sand from previous projects. It's going to take a lot to fill these guys.

wow those are tall. Lowes/Home depot will usually sell the garden soil or bed soil on sale in the spring. Takes A LOT of bags. I topped mine off in year 2 and then have been using home grown compost since.

I definitely don't want to do topsoil in the whole thing. I'm thinking about going out to our woods and picking up some of the junk logs/branches, just anything that will fill-up some of the space. Our ground is really sandy, so anytime I do a yard project, I end up with some sand in my corner pile, so that will take up some space to.

A local place (Saratoga Sod) does 3 cubic yard bags of topsoil, so I'll probably grab a couple of those to top it off.

Anything ever eat your garlic at that stage? I have above 40 cloves coming and something decided to try just one special one.

I guarantee you whatever triedit won't be back for more and he/she is going to tell all their friends to stay away from that stuff.
