Recommended Posts

Just started some seeds last week.

 

Tomatoes- sweet 100, beefsteak, purple

Jalapeño and basil

Cucumber(2 types), zucchini squash(green and yellow) beans and some other herbs to be planted directly in the ground later.

 

I’m also going to try and reseed my very neglected lawn but I’ll save that for the Biz lawn thread if he’s still here after his move

Sweet I'm going to have to start some seeds soon. You southern NY guys start growing before me up here by the Canadian border. I usually can get stuff planted safely after memorial day weekend. I've started by may 15 before but gotta watch  for Frost and snow. If my starters don't take my neighbor owns a green house so I can always get some stuff if he's not sold out. Last 2 years with covid people took up gardening as a hobby and things went quick.

2nd year at gardening. Tried too much too late in the season last year. 

Built a grow box this year just waiting on my light fixture to arrive on Monday.

The box will be horizontal and 50"x24"x21", should fit (4) 1020 trays with extra room for a few small pots.

Trying (2) potato towers, 1 sweet potato, 1 blue potato

The garden is (3) 3'x6' beds. Did soaker hose last year, which I didn't like much. Going drip line this year.

I have Asparagus and Celery germinating. Peppers will get started after dinner tonight. 

The big change this year is an eight foot wire garden fence being installed. After two years of fighting with the local deer heard it was time to spend some money on a real fence. 

Okra is a new one for me hope it grows well.

Lots of stuff can handle the cold. carrots,greens beets and some others can be planted once the soil gets to the upper 40's.

I do enjoy it. I rarely get to go though. Currently stuck fishing the banks of the Hudson come striper season. Years ago I used to fish the Shinnecock Inlet every other day.

I had very good luck with okra last year. It was my first try growing it. We breaded and deep fried it and also. Pickled it dilly style.

Is that because of the calcium in the pill? I use tomatoe tone and egg shells

It’s a type of acid that triggers a early response to a disease before the plant actually has it.

Garlic is coming up I counted out 120 of the 130 cloves I planted are up.

Peppers, okra, celery, eggplant, tomatoes, Asparagus and flowers are probably a week away from being transplanted. So far so good on my end.

This is my second favorite thread to the Beer one. With my move to CT, I need to do more prep work than last year but I pretty much have a slightly sloped spot picked out.

Just for Water rat. Zero for ten on brussel sprouts on my first attempt, ten for ten on my second attempt.

Asparagus is suppose to take three years from seed but there are already spears forming I don't understand that.

Peppers are slow to grow this year except for jalapeños they look great!

My neighbor mentioned something similar to me regarding asparagus, 1st year do not harvest anything, 2nd year take only 1 cutting, then 3rd year harvest normally. Something to do with letting the plant establish good rooting.
