Hello from SouthEast Indiana

Post  JohnCalvin on 3/30/2017, 5:00 pm

Hello all.  My wife and I have been doing SFG for 5 years. We're in our 60's and due to health problems, are totally redoing our garden this year with both taller beds and elevated (29" high) beds.

Looking forward to participating.

John

Hopefully the after photos will be taken next week. 1 Elevated bed left to build and then 12 beds worth of Mels Mix to make and fill in.

My favorites would have to tomatoes, okra, peas, lettuce and kale. Realistically though, I just like them all.

I'm trying a lot of different tomato varieties this year, trying a different okra (Burmese instead of Clemson Spinelesss #80), 5 varieties of peas (sowing them tomorrow, maybe), way too many different lettuces, and quite a few kales. I'm trying to get a kale that overwinters well. My collards did very well over the winter, and I'm surprised to be enjoying them more than my kale. Some of my favorites are arugula, ground cherries, lettuce, rutabagas, winter squash, and Chinese artichokes (an obscure root vegetable) - but there's plenty of others I'd be sad to go without! I agree w/CC - nice avatar! Very fitting.

John,
Welcome to the forum from Coastal NC.
Also, welcome to the wonderful world of TableTop beds. I have an abdominal growth that inhibits me from bending over (aka my belly) and I love my TT's. Just a word of advice/caution...you may want to make a bed or two in the 12-18" range for any taller plants. I think my 4x4 is 36" high and when my cherry tomato plants grow 5-6' tall, my DW needs a ladder to harvest. Razz

Planning that. Half will be table top and half will be 12". Can't imagine peas or bean in a table top.

Beans and corn in table top. Very Happy I tried to find a photo of winter pole peas but I guess I didn't take one.  The trellis was the height so I could pick peas on my tip toes.

Ditto on the avatar.  Welcome aboard.  Southeast Indiana has some memories for me.  My wife and I met some very good friends in Versailles, when we made our Loneliest Road in America trip (US 50) 20 years ago.

I hope you harvest in abundance.

Actually, they were not too bad because you can train them to go up and down or across. The cherry toms are what killed me since they are on a stalk vs a vine I couldn't do much with them.
Regardless, the 12" boxes will be great for those tall plants. I think that will be my next size/height I build.

Nice. I may need to try that next year.
