Anyone plant anything new for this years veggie garden? I got some rutabaga and parsnip seeds o try. Then I'll have the 'usuals'. Tomatoes, peppers, hot peppers, beans, cukes, garlic, onions, taters, eggplant, summer 7 winter squash. Herbs too. Cant wait for pickle season!!

I would like to try some blueberries this year, if I get around to digging up a new plot for them. Otherwise, the same old for me this year. Im going to plant less now obviously there is no need for 12 tomato plants..hehe..so I will cut way back on how much I will plant and then maybe I will try something new, always wanted to try eggplant.
Course Im still several weeks away from planting anyway because the weather is still crazy here, still cold at night. We had a few really warm days, but it didn't last.

hugs, Nancy~

I've never tried to grow arrugula. Spinach is pretty easy. I have some of that in too.
Blueberries I didn't have luck with. Dug them up & gave them to my neighbor.

hi, This is only my second year growing vegtables so that explains why I have never grown spinach before This year it looks to be an easy crop to grow but everything is two weeks or more behinde shcedule becuse of a very cool start to spring. arugula looks to be a very easy vegtable to grow and it's ready for harvest in only 35 days so it's a quick one as well. Tomatoes eluded me last year and never produced but this year I'm trying again so we will see how they do.

I am doing the usuals but I'd like to put a Strawberry patch in. Anyone grow Strawberries? Are they hard to grow, need any special conditions or treatment?

DLF, need any advice on maters feel free to ask.

Strawberries are easy if you start them as plants, not seeds. Never tried by seed. They like elbow room, good loamy soil. Critters & birds get more than I do.

Not sure yet what dad and I are going to plant on the garden this year yesterday he tilled it up so not sure. The boys are going to have their own again in a small part of the yard so they are excited.

The only new veggie I'm trying this year is cucumbers... I had no luck last year with them, hoping the new garden will be better.
Here's my layout this year... with my $37 raised bed!



I've got sprouts from everything but the carrots... supports are up for the beans and the peas now too.

The first spring we were in our home, I planted EVERYTHING in containers, and had my garden on our 10x10 upstairs deck. It did wonderfully! I planted the tomatoes in 5 gallon buckets, and the peppers in a rubbermaid storage tote.

Hey there kim. I dont even think my deck is 10x10. I do hope tho that my plants take. They have tons of sprouts in their tiny pots & I'm gonna have to transplant them soon. I hope they dont die out when I do.

Hi Sharon, tomatoes need a lot of room for root growth so plant them in the biggest containers possible, like Kim mentioned, 5 gallon buckets and make sure they have drainage holes. Use good soil, add your favorite fertilizer, and water well when you transplant and they should be fine. And, of course stake them when the get tall. You can transplant tomatoes when they have more than one set of leaves. Good luck.

I haven't even been able to get out and rake out the garden yet. We have a very short growing season. I try to plant by May 15th but sometimes it has to wait longer. We still have very cool nights. I know there is like a blanket thing you can buy to put over your seedlings but I can't afford that right now. Just do the best I can with what time I have.

This year I want to change my flower bed over to all perennials, too. Ive got so much work to do it isn't even funny! But, the weather has not been cooperating.

hugs, Nancy~

I have gatherd from my garden. I got my fist pickings from it.. I got some tomatoes, cabbage, corn and some peppers picked... It was great to actully grow it my self... My hens are laying eggs also which is great cause my sister cant eat the ones from the store but she can eat the ones my chicken lay cause there are free ranged, I guess.. I am so very happy to be to able to do this, its always been my dream to have a farm/ranch.... Thank God for answerd prayers... Now we also broke ground on the house this weekend, I am really hoping to be in a house and out of this 26 ft. travel trailer by Oct...... Please keep praying on that....
