    2020 gardens

    Who's got one in? Planted mine today. Tomatoes, beans, peppers, cucumbers, lettuce and carrots.

    Raised beds inside the fenced yard with a dog, otherwise the deer would eat everything.

        There is a run on starter plants here. Greenhouses are empty. Madness.

          That’s why you grow your own lol. A greenhouse is the way to go. No need to harden off the plants. I used to start them in the house but had a hard time Hardening them up. Never had the time to do it right.

            After last weekend's erection of the greenhouse, weather turned to shit. Snow in the forecast next few days.
            we picked up more fruit trees and lilac today though.

              We grew from seed in the house 2 years ago. It was a cluster fuck. Will look into greenhouses.

                Pretty much everyone is aware of possible food shortages. People who have never gardened before are for the first time, and a lot of them. Many seed suppliers are selling out. It's always good, but especially this year to support your local farmers.

                      Because I have a bunch of free range assholes (chickens) I have to fence off my garden so I just grow a small one.

                      I am finally growing just the stuff I like the most.

                      I have about 16 cherry tomato plants

                      12 sweet banana pepper plants

                      A few hot pepper plants

                      And I also have an onion area that is not fenced in but the chickens leave those alone.

                        We picked up some plants the other day, mom has repotted most of them. have seeds started and potatoes chitting going to container garden this year using earth tubs, and grow bags using the constant water pans method, on our back porch to fend off the rabbits. Next year I hope to have a fenced in area with deep beds for next year.

                          Spent a few hours and got all of my starts in the garden. 9 peppers, 8 celery, 6 broccoli, 4 cantaloupe, 4 watermelon, 12 roma, and 8 better boy tomatoes. I’m gonna try the plastic and see if that helps my weed situation.

                            Tomato tech:

                            A old timer showed me this method to plant your tomato starts. Cut off all the leaves except for the ones at the very end. Dig a trench and lay the plant horizontally in the hole. As your backfilling the hole bend the top up just so it sticks out of the ground. Tomato plants are strange in that if the whiskers on the stem get buried they grow new roots. This method encourages good root growth so the plant can make nice big tomato’s. The first time you try this method it feels weird cutting off all those nice leaves. I have really good luck with this method.
