My lot where my house is, is 1 5/8 acres. This is where my gardens are. I do have other acreage, but grow no veggies there. Its a mountain, really.How many acres do you have?
It's OK.... check out my post at the bottom of this thread, about what I grow from 200 sq feet of veggie gardens:Northernfox wrote:8000 sq feet is 1.75 times larger than my property.
I had no time to take any pictures during the party, so I asked my 40+ guests to help me out, and no one has emailed me anything yetTheWaterbug wrote:So we had the third annual Pick and Paint Pumpkin Patch Party, and my two Atlantic Giants weighed in at 88 lbs and 142 lbs. The big one was the one I thought I'd killed two pages ago. I'll try to post some pictures tomorrow.
I cut my largest pumpkin to take out the seeds. It had nice 3 inch deep flesh. I decided to take some in and try it for dinner. Frankly, I was disappointed. It had no flavor at all. Bleeeegh. Now I know why they are decorations.So now what happens to your 100 pound pumpkins? Is anyone going to eat them?
I do very much enjoy my small garden. The 32 lbs pumpkin was grown in a 2' by 2' box of 2/3 winter compost almost no degradation when I planted and 1/3 grass to keep the smell down and soil to start in. It grew on a trellis 3' off the ground and was the only pumpkin I got from that plant.rainbowgardener wrote:It's OK.... check out my post at the bottom of this thread, about what I grow from 200 sq feet of veggie gardens:Northernfox wrote:8000 sq feet is 1.75 times larger than my property.
If you are growing 32 # pumpkins, you already know you can do a lot with a little space.
