    Share Your Garden

    I love playing in the dirt and usually have a much bigger garden than the two of us really need. This has been a cold and wet spring so some things, like these edible pod peas are doing quite well. It would fun to see what others are planting this season so I hope you will share how your garden is growing.

    nice.
    must be cool to eat salads with what you've grown on your own land.

    gotta have land to have a garden.

    I planted a big pot with some flowers on the front stoop, does that count as gardening?

    We've had such a long and still running monsoon here, the only thing I managed to get going is cantaloupes. Nothing special to show there right now. Wait until they really get to crawling all over the place. Then I will have to put up the electrified rabbit wire or I won't have any to eat.

    I'd love to share our garden, but we haven't even started it yet!

    Do you REALLY want to see what a garden looks like that has not been planted in 3-4 years?

    Planted some tomatoe seeds about 6 weeks ago. After a couple of up-pottings, I started to put them on the deck during the day. Finally made a mini green house, 3' x 4'. Bought an automatic pneumatic window opener to keep from cooking the seedlings. I started doing a thread about the build but had problems.

    Anyhow these will be expensive seedlings. I was beginning to wonder if the green house was worthwhile but then we had a hard frost this past Monday morning.

    I did plant some peas and beans about 3 weeks ago. They have sprouted and were able to withstand the frost.

    Checked for some chives today, but they haven't come up yet. Maybe there done for.

    I just finished my planting this weekend by putting in okra and green beans. I have 4 types of tomatoes, 3 types peppers, beets,
    kale, summer squash, zucchini, and cucumbers all ready in the ground.

    I hate to say this, Terry. But I am jealous!!! I am normally eating my own tomatoes and peppers by this time of year and enjoying them immensely. With all the gully washers we have been having I just couldn't get everything done. Oh, well. Fall will be just around the corner and I'll get it done for then. Maybe.

    I only have 2 tomato plants this year. Usually have some peppers too. Had plans to make a raised bed garden and grow salad fixin's this year, but ran out of time. The summer to do list keeps growing so maybe I can get the raise bed made this fall so I'm ready for next summer.

    Yours looks great Ted!
