SG those peppers are amazing!

wow....can't believe it's been a year since we moved and updated our beds. We've harvested literally hundreds of pounds from it this past year, and are so happy Smile It's now full of broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, potatoes, asparagus, carrots, basil, beans, watermelon, tomatoes, squashes, lettuce, spinach, peppers, loads of strawberry plants and more! Hope this next year is as good or better!
Happy Gardening all!! Here is a pic from spring this year Smile

I have certainly enjoyed your progress this year and I fully expect it will be just as productive next year if not more.
You give inspiration to us trailing you.
Working on putting chips down right now, and so looking forward to next spring and what it brings.

thank you so much. It seems like it's been more than a year when I think of where we started from and where we are. It all happened so fast really! The chips work!!

It does, Marie. We have something to aim for, even if we do fall short. I love seeing other peoples' efforts.

oh you guys are TOO kind! You can never "fall short" in your own garden! It's all about what you make it Smile
We bit the bullet and covered our strawberries like in the BTE film. Seems sooo crazy, so we'll see!
We planted the garlic from that huge garlic we pulled in the spring, and it's already up! HOPE it turns into some amazing garlic next spring. 
How is everyone else's gardens doing??

Re: moved our beds

Post  jimmy cee on 11/30/2014, 11:55 am

mine here in Pennsylvania is BLAH.
Since I recently ( this fall ) elevated 4 of my 5 beds their just sitting there as bare as a frog sitting in the water.
I left a small section aside for a small cold frame, about 2 X 4 rather than that 4 X 8 giant monster I had.

Above was my old cold frame now gone
below is the beginning of my newer more improved cold frame, smaller and facing south


I'm considering making this small bed a potato patch and try growing pole beans in among them.
Might be an interesting project.

No, Thank you anyway. I have that all covered
I was actually responding to SGs post and got carried away.
Just like when I ask my wife a question she replies with an answer that's equal to a book.
I seem to do the same, only with SFG ing

Looking good SG.  I have about 25 Broccoli heads sitting on but the biggest one is only about golf ball size (planted 9/6).  Most of the others are marble size (planted 10/5).
