April 2012 Season 2

Post  WolfHeart on 4/26/2012, 6:27 pm

So I finally got my life somewhat back together and got som photos of the gardens today along with my first attempts at vegetable starts.

The new garden I call Sunny



This was one of my first year SFG, I have to admit it looks a lot better than last year:



My second year trying Potatoes, Last year I over watered and they rotted in the dirt. This year i just bought some cheap topsoil and threw them in:



These are my starts:

Egg plant and bell peppers



Tomatoes (Cherokee Purple and a Lemon Oxheart)



Surgar baby watermelon (back) and Zucchini (cannot remember the cultivar):


I have heard that it is difficult to transplant Zucchini, is that true? or is there a special way to do it?

Well I will try to get better about updating I am finally down to two jobs so i will have some free time Very Happy

Shocked And you started things from seed too?!

Everything looks so great! What's in the middle of Sunny, is that garlic? Looks like you have some leaf lettuces planted around the broccoli - good use of space. My potatoes are in planters like that and I watered them last week and every time I check them the soil is still wet. I drilled lots of extra drainage holes and covered the holes with landscape fabric so they wouldn't get clogged. Not sure what's going on but I bdetter figure it out before tuber development begins. I don't want rotten taters! Thanks for the heads up on that.

I don't know anything about zucchini so I hope someone else chimes in for you. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your progress!

Update May 17

Post  WolfHeart on 5/17/2012, 2:18 pm

Gwennifer,

Thanks for your comments. in the middle of sunny are red and yellow onions. the lettuce was a trial run this year under the broccoli. next year I will plant the broccoli first then throw down some lettuce. I forgot to leave a space for the broccoli and had to disturb most of my seeds that I had planted. Live and learn.


So I am finally accustomed to my day shift for the summer and thought I would catch you all up with what is happening in the gardens

First of all, zucchini. I am not sure what people are talking about this palnt being difficult to transplant. Here is what mine look like today:



What a Face Shocked What a Face

I might be in for some zucchini later this summer, hope the neighbors like zucchini Laughing


This is sunny from the East and West sides of the garden:

Facing West


Facing East


I have to brag just a little about the tomatoes you see there....I GREW THEM FROM SEEDS!!!! What a Face What a Face What a Face What a Face bounce bounce bounce bounce
Just sayin', I am a bit excited!


This is the other box from my OP.



This is from a similar angle as the original post and yes that is a bolting broccoli, I thought I would try to collect seeds if they show up. Never done that before so thought I would try. It is a Pacman variety so I am not certain it wil produce viable seeds. I also have Di Ciccio (?) in this garden but I started it too late, I am going to try more in the fall.



This is from the other side, I have red romain in the front and some paris island in the back that is coming in nicely. Not sure why my lettuce is not doing as well as some I see here on the boards but it is better than last year, so an overall improvement.



And I finally have peas! these are Lincoln Peas from Baker's Creek

And Finally I have my summer garden going.



Yes there are cabbages there in the front, not summery but when my dad showed up with a few plants I was like, Ican make space tongue

The rest are Sweet pepper plants, a variety of colors, not sure which it came in one of those multi color packs. I am hoping for at least one white, I think that would be cool. There are also some eggplant in there as well as garlic and carrots. Oh! and some green beans in the back.

I forgot to take a picture of my taters but they are doing pretty well too.

Thanks for looking!
