I finished planting my garden today with the exception of the heirloom tomatoes which are about ten days from being planted. I reworked the soil in my beds this past winter. They now consist of about 50% soil and 50% composted sawdust and horse manure. I was concerned about putting so much sawdust in the soil because of the possibility of depleting nitrogen as the wood decomposed. The beds have a very active worm population and the plants that are growing are doing very well.
This is the garden as it looks to me. Very small in other words. I will need to expand it for the fall garden or next springs garden.
This is what one of the hoop beds I made from pvc pipe and tulle netting looks like. Very easy and very simple to make and it should keep the vine borers off my squash plants when they germinate and grow. The "Texas Super Sweet Onions" are doing well in the bed and should grow really large.
This is my garlic which was planted last fall. Some of the leaves are 36" tall. This bed will also hold my Bell peppers, yard long green beans, and Prudens Purple heirloom tomatoes.
This is my new bed which currently holds more onions, the hybrid tomatoes I planted today, and jalapeno peppers. It will also hold the heirloom tomatoes when I plant them.
This is my cucumber bed/trellis. The cukes are planted, but haven't sprouted. You can see the Romaine lettuce I planted last fall, but didn't grow more than three inches all winter. In about two weeks, it is has grown to almost twelve inches tall. This is a miniature variety called "Little Ceaser". The opposite end of the bed has been planted with a full size variety, but the plants are tiny.
Lets see your garden.
