Gardening Styles

When we talk about gardens, that could have a wide meaning as far as the style of garden. For me the "garden" was always a place where Dad planted vegetables, (heavy on corn and potatoes). Of course it rubbed off and when I got my own place I continued the tradition of growing my own veggies as much as possible. I know many of you plant in boxes or raised beds. I just go out in the yard and till up a portion of it and plant. In any case gardening has been very rewarding for me and my family. Hope it is working out well for you as well. Here is a pic of one of my past gardens.

.....and some of the goodies.

Ok...... I confess, I am doing this to encourage you to plant this season. Yes, it is time to be thinking about planting.

I would like to see some pics of your past gardens. Lets encourage the newcomers.

Re: Gardening Styles

My whole block could probably fit in your garden.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.

Re: Gardening Styles

I planted a row of onion seeds directly in the garden last fall. I just went out and looked, they are coming up.

The onions you sent me a few years back come up faithfully each spring. They are about 6-8 inches tall now. Along with daffodils they are a true sign of good spring to come.

Re: Gardening Styles

I finally got outside today -- puttered around and cleaned up a bit. Rebuilt the compost pile, etc. -- ground /paths between raised mound beds and lawn were all very wet and mucky, and when I tried to push a fallen solar garden light back in the ground, only top few inches were thawed... frozen under the mud.

But Egyptian walking onions and some other onions are up including ones I planted in a window box back in fall and left tucked against the house. Some carrots overwintered under a sopping muddy garden fleece it looks like -- hoping to get some seeds this year. :D

Re: Gardening Styles

btrowe1, Thanks for sharing your pics. This is just what I was hoping for...... others sharing pics of their gardens and gardening style.

It has been a rather warm month of March so far here. I don't usually get to planting until April, but tempted to go plant some things now. Spinach, carrots, lettuce and peas should be OK? Perhaps that is what I will do to celebrate St Patrick's Day?
