Monthly Avatar Theme for August: Show off your Garden!

Post  cheyannarach on 7/31/2012, 5:53 pm

Okay everybody! It's that time again and for the month of August we are going to Show off our Gardens! Here's one of mine!



This is part of my front yard garden! The pyramid is looking a little thin, I have harvested a few squares of radishes, turnips, lettuce, spinach, and beets, and the deer have helped themselves to quite a bit the last few days

Nice theme for August!
Your garden looks great Cheyanne You live in a beautiful area, to bad you have all the wildlife to contend with What a Face

Here's a shot of my 4x8 box. My tomatoes have grown outta control. The carrots need to start being harvested and my chard needs a haircut. My peppers have looked a little poopy here the past week or so too. Not real sure what's up with that thinking My eggplants have loved the heat and are doing really well. My purple beans are also starting to bloom, so hopefully real soon I'll have beans
I shouldn't be taking shots of the garden during the heat of the day, but here's my August avatar for now.

This was my the overflow setup.

Herbs, peppers, squash and the sourthern field peas experiment.
Field peas supposedly bear better in not so nitrogen rich soil.



Here is the other side.


Original thread on the experiment. http://squarefoot.creatingforum.com/t12230-field-peas-and-mm

Rooster, I did not realize that you were a cattle panel gardener too.
Looks great, I love that teeny little fence around everything, seems to keep everything in place.

Yay, what a fun theme! Here's a side shot of my garden. It's kind of bare at the moment because I just harvested my potatoes, bush beans and carrots, but it won't be long til it's green and bushy again.

I'll have to use this one for now. Just put up a new trellis so it's empty.


Can gr peppers and bush beans be moved to another location without harm?

CC, what a lovely garden. You have an interesting layout, it looks like! As for your question, the edging in the lower right box is kind of a make shift tophat, lol. That used to house my potatoes! I got a surprising amount of potatoes from 10 inches of MM Smile

I am not sure about peppers, but I wouldn't move the beans! Looking Good!

I felt like a kid in a candy store when we FINALLY harvested our red potatoes! We sowed 8 seeds and reaped about 4 lbs of tators. It was like digging up a hidden treasure! Renee rock on

Everybody's gardens look great!! I'm getting ready to plant some fall crops in the TT. The tomatoes are coming in faster than we can eat them now, lots of peppers, acorn squash, beans, and I have one of the rare black watermelons that's pretty good size.

This was taken about the middle of July. I must say that the "bush" squash has literally taken over a portion. Next year I'll put it at the end so it can roam free.



I've planted some lima beans, celery, beets and snow peas in some of the squares since then. Limas, celery (planted the end that I cut off - it works) are doing just fine so far. Going to be planting some carrots tomorrow. Any square that is close to being empty will have fall crops. Root crops are great for the winter months. Broccoli is still making babies.

Turan, what's under cover and what's in the cold frames? And is it due to heat or cold?

They are to help hold the warmth, even now the nights get too cool for good cuke and tomato growth. In the hoop house are growing ID tomatoes, basil, okra, yard long beans. In the cattle panel bowed and covered with plastic are melons, cucumbers and summer squash and a tomatillos. In the 2 shorter cold frames are eggplant, peppers, Roma tomatoes and tomatillos.

My main garden is doing good, pole beans in foreground on tepee; on the trellis left is Tigger melons then cucumbers. In the ground several pepper plants, new planting of carrots, lettuce, spinach and radishes. Not show are my tomatoes - not worth seeing. I will be at the farmers market tomorrow buying more tomatoes.
