Stuff I'm Growing 2014 - Page 2

Looks great!

 

Every year I do less even than the tiny garden I did the previous year.

 

I can grow weeds better than you can, though!

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Finally got the garlic harvested..... I cleaned about 400 Zemo and they are in the "Onion" bags hanging in the cool room..... The new varieties look good.... Big heads, big cloves....

...about 500 Metechi.... ...about 60 "Elephant" .....


...3 new varieties for next year seed..... ....and the shallots.......



The onions "SUCK".... the dirt I put in the apple bins was like clay.... no drainage, wouldn't allow the onions to expand.... I have no idea how they can call that stuff "garden soil".... maybe in Georgia, clay is garden soil, but not here... (no offense intended to our friends in Georgia)...

Cukes are doing good in the earth boxes.... maters also.... will get pics later.....

Looks great Dave. We did onions and potatoes in a mix of coconut fiber and fine ground pine bark mulch next year I'll go straight fine ground pine bark
