I got 23 tomato plants in Saturday, have around 30 to go. My raddishes will probably be picked by the weekend and my beets, peas, onions, garlic, lettuce and cabbage are doing well. I stopped picking aspharagus a week ago. I have 100 pepper plants waiting, not sure how many I'll put in. Still need to get in carrots, beans, zukes, cucumbers
Finished expanding our garden to triple the size from last year today, and all on a rare day off. This is only year #2 here and the soil needs some composting work but this was a big step. Donned the rain gear this AM (skipped turkey hunting) and got the fence up and raked up all the mud and rocks from the edges.
Even got the foot high grass mowed during the lull from the rain in the afternoon.
The buggy is my next door uncle's and man has it helped get stuff done around the house- will somehow have my own in the next year or so to move wood and expedite yard work/ hauling. Some plants were already in and have lots more to plant in the next couple weeks. Can't wait for the watermelons again!!
This is my bag garden. The soil is rocky with a few more rocks thrown in. I put down 6" mulch than bags of top soil, the top soil still in the bags with drain holes cut in the underside. More mulch to even up the area and support the bags with the panels removed. Tomatoes, beans, matermelon, cucumbers, peas, and other things.
I like how you added a potted flower too, in the garden. Should help with the pollination.
A lot of people in the Washington, DC area are doing their gardens this except they are skipping the mulch: taking a bag of top soil, slicing the one side, flipping over the bag and then planting tomatoes, peppers, melons, etc.
What's interesting is they are doing this on their front lawns.
Cool idea with mulch! A relative used to dig holes, line with a trashcan and insert potted shrubs so he could change the look without digging up shrubs in front of house. Keep garden pics coming, Ill try to add some too.
With a break in the rain, I finally got the rest of my plants in today. I put a thin layer of mulch overtop of the seeds I just planted, so hopefully they don't have any trouble coming through. I guess I'll find out in a week or so!
I was able to get that last of my seeds in last week and currently almost everything I had previously planted is up. In my first attempt at potatoes 13 of 14 planted have popped through so I'm pretty happy about that. Tomatoes and peas are really taking off. Should be a good garden this year!
