This summer was my first ever garden. I posted pictures in the "introduce yourself" forum, but I thought I should bring it to the proper place.
I planted tomato, squash, onion, eggplant, okra, corn and green beans. Everything did well with the exception of the corn. There were a couple of ears per stalk, sometimes 3, and they were nice and full a little over half of the way inside the husks, then they became all... Island of Dr. Moreau weirdly deformed looking... the rest of the way. Dunno what happened. We didn't use any chemical fertilizers at all... only mushroom compost and fish emulsion... and no insecticides, just picked off any critters we found either by hand or blasted 'em with the waterhose!
There's some asparagus in there too. Thought I'd give it a try. It was just little and wispy in these pictures, but it's quite robust and has ferned out nicely now. I'm anxious to see if I get edible spears next Spring! WooHoo!
I did find out that sunflowers are pretty darn easy to grow! LOL!!!
I'm starting on my first Fall garden, and would LOVE some suggestions for fall/winter crops that would like the NW Florida climate. So far, all I've figured out is spinach and strawberries.
Thanks in advance for any suggetsions!
