I got myself totally mixed up on this today. I thought I was going to grow mostly green beans this year, cuz I THOUGHT I only had about 10 qts. left. Well I found more-I actually have about 25 qts. So now I don't need to plant green beans, cuz if I just need to can a few I can get them from my DM or my DGF.

 

We'll plant a couple of tomatoes, some jalepenos and aneheims, potatoes, cucumbers, maybe some broccoli and cauliflower (a friend said she'd buy all I grow).

 

I'm thinking now maybe alot of onions. I used the last of them last week and it's only Feb.

 

Still thinking 'bout it.....

We are getting closer to planting in the gardens-

got seeds started in mini greenhouse : some for the flower beds and some for the vegetable gardens.

helping out at the Amish Greenhouse and getting our plants going there too.

Lots of Weeding and turning over the dirt in the raised beds as the weather warms up.

Lots of things coming back in the Herb Garden- always a good sign!

Peas going in soon

ordering potatoes, onions

garlic up already.

Our neighbor was just nice enough to till our whole garden. We havn't planted it in a while to let the nutrients to return. We have a friend who owns cows.. nuff said right? We had a lot of posts and chicken wire but our neighbor pulled them all out. Now our garden is about 3/4ths of an acre. Not bad for starters. He loves his tractor.

 

I honestly don't know what I'm planting.. ACK.. I'm just getting into gardening. I normally just do the flower thing. I went to the store the other day and bought some seeds, but I don't remember what exactly I bought. These are what I'd like to plant (if it's not already too late)

 

Strawberries

Rhubarb

Corn (sweet)

pumpkins

pole beans

potatos

cauliflower

brocoli

cucumbers (my boyfriend hates them but they're nummy)

dill

radishes

carrots

sage

parsley

celantro

tomatoes

chile/bell peppers

 

We also have 3 bing cherry trees, 3 apple trees that we don't treat because they're the deer's favorite, a plum bush and a pear tree. We also have 4 really lovley rose bushes. One is sweet, one smells more like a london rose lotion and the yellow one doesn't smell but is far prettier than the red ones and any others are babies.

 

We also have over 5 acres of blackberry bushes.

CAREFUL MOMO - they're uh.. they're tough to get rid of! They also spread like crazy. We get out our machete and pretend we're in the amazon!

 

Anyone have any clue what to do about gophers? The deer are easy.. we just hang dial soap off each post and it actually is a deterant. They hate the smell. Gophers leave my lawn more dirt than grass because they push up half of china on my lawn. We've tried traps, but they're smart! We also tried flooding the holes, but after leaving the water on for like an hour, no holes even started to bubble. Any natural.. but cheap deterants I can put around my new garden?

Amanda, I will ask dh about the gophers, he has gone through this before.

 

Last week added 6 cabbage plants and added more beans and carrots. The garden is looking spectacular I might add. Added a few flowers to it...and some interesting items to perk the area up. The wood chips were an excellent addition to the pathways. Yesterday, I dug up another patch of garden. Had some potatoes in containers as well but wanted all the potatoes growing in the garden so transferred those in the ground with the others.

I'm planting beans and carrots for the second time this year, the bunny's had some friends over for a small intimate buffet. I will have to come up with a different covering for them. The inner-city animals are crafty, and get thru alot of fencing.

Went to DM today. You should see HER garden! The green beans are just stems, every other sweet corn plant has been chomped right off, the tomatoes have been topped off-TWICE, cabbages are just starting to grow back, the strawberries disappear daily. It's a veritable gourmet feast for the furries. There's rabbit and deer tracks EVERYWHERE!! You can pretty much follow them around the garden. I told her 'Well, at least you're fattening up the meat for this winter!'
