How's Your Garden Doin'?

Mine's been so so,I've planted along borders.Took over my kids old playground,and have a huge plot to work with.Everything but the corn and green onions are doing what they should be doing, growing.

Started from seeds and hardening them off was a challenge.They will soon get the final move to the ground in about a week.
Wouldn't you know it,when I thought my Roma's from seeds wouldn't make it they did,after I cheated and bought Early Girls..Go figure.I think they're messing with me :)

The garden is...
Maters
Corn,Early and Late
Cucumbers
Squash
Green Beans,
Jalapeno's
Habanero's
Yellow Bell Peppers
Red Bell's
Banana Peppers
Green Onions
Potatoes
some Lettuce,Broccoli
Garlic
Thyme
Oregano
Basil
Parsley
That about does it.

Munky.

Wow, great kitchen garden! I just have the fruit trees this year and a large plot of what I like to call "native plants", AKA weeds.

What kind of fruit trees are you growing?
I wouldn't mind a few fruit trees in my back yard..It's just finding the right type for this part of Cali.I'm always undecided.

Munky - How YOU doin'.... seriously, I wish I had the stamina to keep the local critters from a garden. Even took a couple of pictures today (crappy ones) of a new born fawn left to hide on its on i the yard while cutting grass today. Missed it by about 3'.

What the heck, here's a poor picture form my cell camera (cheap) but I can't blame it for the quality anymore than the photographer.

http://i707.photobucket.com/albums/w...g?t=1243116928 (pops) And no, it won't be too tender a deer. I hunt/fish, but I don't in my own yard.

So if you'd like to adopt me, I'll bring the meat if you bring the garden :-)

That's a great picture of the fawn.Good save! :)
My cell phone is 10 yrs old,it doesn't even take pictures or does all that texting.
Our only critter problem at the time is my golden retriever..He's a vegetarian.I had to build a make shift fence to keep him out,set penny cans out as traps he never liked those.So far he's not in the exploring mood.

I envy you. If I had the choice choosing between growing fruit or veggies.I'd choose the trees..

Munky.

The reason why I said I'd bring the meat is that I gave up on gardening. I have around 20 or so deer in the yard at multiple times a day, hawks, owls, ground hogs, raccoon, rabbit, moles, even the occasional flock of turkeys nad a fox or two, etc.

The season that I did all the precautionary things, fencing buried, powdered red pepper on the fruits, etc., I had what I assume was a raccoon take a single bite overnight out of each and every single tomato fruit I was growing... 8 plants, maybe 60 fruit at the time just shortly before turning red. That ended my gardening here. Now I do a couple of potted tomato plants sitting on top of a cord of firewood, but growing other things at the moment are not something I want to stress on yet :-)

That was evil... "one" bite out of each fruit? That was someone giving me a sign.

Wished I could have had better pictures for you. Those type pictures don't come every day. Love living in the country.

Regards,

Bob
