Whatcha growin'

Post  ashort on 4/13/2011, 11:13 pm

So what does everyone here in the Lower South have planted right now or going in in the near future?

ME:

2 zucchini
2 straightneck
2 eggplant
6 Big Jim peppers
6 squares of onions - half red / half yellow
2 squares of buttercrunch (harvesting now to replant with tomatoes....)
1 square of romaine (also harvesting to replant tomatoes)
1 square of chard (ditto on the harvest)
4 broccoli (about to harvest)
4 cauliflower (about to harvest)
1 carrot
3 spinach (about to harvest out to replant pepppers)
2 mesculn (about to be done - peppers coming)
1 radish (coming out for more peppers)
2 squares of basil
2 squares of green beans
4 squares of cucumbers (two different types)
1 parsley
1 cilantro
1 beefsteak tomato in topsy turvey
9 strawberry plants in topsy turvey

So near future looks like this:

12 tomatoes (half roma, other half split between beefsteak and cherry)
7 peppers (bells, jalapenos, banana)
2 more squares of green beans (10 days away)
carrots and radishes in front of squashes and eggplants

New 2 x12 bed being built this weekend
8 squares of corn, 8 of okra, and 8 for my DD to plant flowers!

need another 4x4 bed soon to plant more salad greens in

Empty
This will hold the carrots it is 12 inches or 10 in depth I think.

Bed 5 1x7 6 inches
Lemon Cucumber
Straight neck squash


I have two more beds that my husband made yesterday 2 - 2 x 12s ...


I want these for potatoes. I want a ton of potatoes well I exaggerate but, I want a lot. I have Adirondack blue, Yukon and reds waiting to be planted. I need more taters, I will be hunting those down soon. I am going to do something different with these boxes. I am going to use the existing soil below the box, then as the plants grow I will add MM. I want as much depth for potatoes because of the quantity I want. It will give me time to finish off the compost I have that needs to be sifted and put in containers. I will of course feed the tater tots compost Smile

In the ground right now, I have radish 'sparkler', carrots 'red cored chatenay', sweet corn, 2 varieties of popcorn, green to orange bell pepper, violet to red bell pepper, busilis pepper. sweet pimento pepper 'lipstick', strawberries, and watermelon 'sugar baby'. I'm hoping to plant potatoes next week (red, blue, and white varieties), as well as cantaloupe, cucumber, different carrot varieties, tomatos and an early seedless watermelon. Maybe beans. And once I get my shady section into shape, I'll add dill, cilantro, basil, and lettuce, just to see how it works.

I might have extra seed potatoes. If I do, I'll let you know--I hate to throw away what I don't use! Maybe you'll want them, and then I won't have to suffer from plant guilt! Wink

Oh thank you thats nice. I will keep folks posted about the progress Smile I have the beds down in my garden stacked at the moment and not in place, Im experimenting with planting with the almanac this year as much as I can, the 17th -20th is root crop planting Smile I hope to get the beds in place today and ready for the 17th. We will see there might be a few storms today. We work around them though.
