The plants are all up and doing fine. The garden is a lot smaller than I am accustom to. The okra is growing very slow as okra does. I have always wondered why corn is always 6 ft tall by the time okra is knee high. Tomatoes will even out grow okra for a while but once the temperature hits 100 degrees okra takes off growing.
The garden is very compact.
First 5 rows are silver queen corn, rows are 1 ft apart.
Next row is okra.
Next row 2 kinds of tomatoes.
3 kinds of squash in this row.
2 rows of blue lake bush beans.
Last row bell peppers and melons.
Back left side of photo is the Grape arbor with 4 Grape vines. To the left is an Orange tree and to the left of that is a Nectarine tree. The 21 degree winter weather killed several desert plants so I replaced them with a Peach tree, Pomegranate tree, and Plum tree. Bushes around the pool all died too so they were replaced with Blueberry plants and Hops. 2 dead palm trees and the ever green tree are about to be replaces with 2 Pecan trees and Black Raspberries. The oleander bush is going to become a Blackberry. I still need to buy an Apple and Pear tree. If I can't eat it I don't want it in the yard.
I hope to have a winter garden. Cool weather will be great for a winter garden I just don't know how the short sun light days will affect the plants. I think I will plant potatoes, onions, carrots garlic, and lots of greens.
