The Garden Progresses

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

 

I don't feel like I have really started gardening until I put the potatoes in the ground. We have been sprouting them on a counter and today we dug the trenches and put them in. Behind the potatoes are 2 cherry tomato plants under Kozy Coats. There is still a strong risk of frost in the mountains.

 

 

The garlic I planted last fall is over a foot tall.

 

 

I have put in 6 Manitoba and 4 Stupice tomatoes under Kozy Coats.

 

 

The strawberries have blooms

 

 

There are snow peas coming underneath the trellis. Behind the trellis, there are 9 pepper plants under Kozy coats. There are 6 sweet red pepper, a jalapeno, a mildly hot red and a minature orange bell.

 

 

Spinach is sprouting. I also have green onion and lettuce seeds in.

 

 

The haskaps are flowering and some of the flowers are forming berries.

 

 

The walking onions are over a foot tall.

 

 

The rhubarb is ready to harvest.

 

 

It just gets better from here!

You have a longer growing season than we do. I have to get stuff in the ground and under protection early to get a crop in our short growing season.

Thanks for the kind words. However, even if your yard is torn up you can put a tomato plant and a pepper plant in a pot and move it around as you need to. There is a variety of tomato called Tumbler that does great in a pot and produces a ton of tomatoes.

 

I am afraid home grown garlic has ruined me for the store bought variety. If you check out Dave Omak's posts, he really has a garlic production going.

 

Haskap is a very early berry that has a less sweet taste but similar to a combination of a raspberry and a blueberry. If you Google it, you will get a much better set of pictures. This is my third year growing it. I hope to get enough to make wine. Last year was its second year and I did get enough to make ice cream and some haskap pancakes. My fingers are crossed for this year.

Looks good Disco!  thumb1.gif  I am behind this year due to family issues but I did manage to get a portion of my garden plowed Friday & ran the disc over it yesterday. I've had walking onions for several years & I like them a lot  :smile:

Thanks, SB. I'm sure your garden will be great. I love the walking onions, they are small and tasty.

Actually, the squirrels weren't so bad, it was the chipmunks and birds. We get a decent crop if we keep the strawberries in bondage.

Hey Disco, Great looking Garden, I like the way you laid it out. I know we have a lot longer growing season here in Texas, But this strange weather delayed planting early, we had a couple of very late freezes. But now garden is coming right along, Been picking radishes, some zucchini will be ready in a day or two and squash not far behind. Tomato's, cucumbers and peppers are really growing, got carrots planted late, but oh well, corn is coming along .

You doing O-K ? hope you and your family are well.

Thanks, Gary. I am very jealous of your garden. The only thing we've been able to harvest is rhubarb.

 

I am doing fine but I have yet to catch up after travelling for a couple of weeks. I love vacation but it sure through a loop in my routine.
