Grow buckets, some with coconut coir ready for peppers.


Small ground plot almost ready. Just needs a little more soil/compost added and lightly tilled again.


Trellis plot is ready for peas tomorrow and cukes later

Looks like you are taking full advantage of the space you have available to plant.

You would not believe the amount of long beans i got out of that trellis plot last year. I had plants around 8ft tall and beans over a foot long.

I have more on the deck. Mostly herb boxes and a couple pots with stuff like cilantro. I got the long herb box planted yesterday with 2 kinds of thyme, 2 kinds of oregano and rosemary. Another has salad burnet (taste like cucumber) and tomorrow a misc salad mix is going in a planter or two.

I have been harvesting green onions for a week or two here in the Midwest. Lettuce is just coming in and the beets are promising. Tomatoes are in the ground. Okra, pole beans, summer squash and cukes are planted and up except for the okra. My garlic will be ready to harvest in a week or two, the elephant garlic in about a month. I quit harvesting asparagus a couple of weeks ago.

I finally got my garden turned over. With all the rain we have been having the ground has been too wet. I broadcast fertilizer on it a few days ago and I am going to rake it in today and get my parsley planted. I will not put my tomatoes, cukes, bell and jalapeno peppers in until after Memorial day.

It has been in the 90s here for the last week so I jumped the gun and got my tomatoes in yesterday. Next week the peppers and cukes will go in. I put in my flat leaf parsley two weeks ago and my rosemary held real well from last year, my thyme has been in for about 5 years and just keeps getting better, same with my chives.

Has anyone ever planted San Marzano plum tomatoes? How did they turn out. I planted some this year because I buy them canned to make red sauce. We make a lot of tomato juice and I am hoping they will be a good addition to it.
