With the last frost about out of the way, it's time to get the garden ready to plant. I got my first go with the tiller done today, but I won't plant most of it for a week or so. We about always get our last frost in the beginning of May.

Let's see some gardens!!!!

Here's mine

If I didn't have the tractor to do the majority of my tilling, I'd probably just grow a few tomatoes.

Nice garden, the deer would have a field day here. I just started some ghost pepper seeds and other herbs in the aero garden and plant them later.

For the transplant do you use the starter seed insert , or the regular one ?
I waited to long with mine , and don't want to mess up the reapers . Picking plenty of Jalapenos . A lot of blooms on the reapers , no peppers yet .

Have no idea, first time for me. I will probably screw it up in the "hardening stage". I might have to get some plants from a local pepper head that I found last year.

hmmmmm, never saw that. I was actually thinking setting up a hydroponic system in the basement. Although with all my fish tanks down there, I probably should not add anymore humidity down there...

My garden is currently on a table in my office with a grow light. Maybe soon it will warm up!

Yikes, Doug! WTH?

I'm only doing 3 tomato plants this year (another thread). But I do have several starts of Nadapenos popping up from seed. They're like jalapenos, but without the heat. We'll see how they do. Seed were hard to find, and they seem to be growing pretty slowly. Took 2 weeks just to germinate.
I used to buy the peppers from a farmer near me, but he either died or sold the farm a couple years ago.

Yeah, something like that. I've been using these things most of my life, and probably had a few close calls, it's the first time I got bit, though, and when I do something, I do it right. It was just one of them things. The cutoff wheel hung, grinder flew out of my hands and into my knee. I should have gotten them to do a little repair work while they were at it since I already had it cut open for them.

Wow to both! Great start, but bummer on the leg! Glad you are healing and still at it!

Will need a new pair of pants. Guessing the knee is cut out and the backside is a little dirty after that one. Glad you didn’t hit a main vein and are healing.
