Default Garden progress

We've been pretty well socked in with the wet weather since Monday. The garden is about 1/2 in - wish we were farther along, but still making better progress than the two previous years. Everything that's been planted is up and looking pretty good, so far. Still need to get tomatoes and peppers transplanted and some melons and squash in the ground. How's everyone else doing?

doing about the same as you. The sweet corn, "critter corn", and cowpeas are all a few inches tall. I'm just waiting for a break in the mud season to get the squash, broccoli, tomatoes, brussel sprouts transplanted. I also need to get the melon seeds in the ground.

Ranger, I think it's safe to say you had a bit of a head start on us. I'm actually kinda glad my maters aren't in the ground yet. Supposed to get down to 35 tomorrow night, so they'll be sleeping indoors, of course! Corn, cabbage, lettuce, peas can handle it. Beans are in the ground, but not up yet. Figure it's bet they don't pop up till Saturday...everything else is better off without the cold snap.

well. . . i haven't ate anything
from it yet.
yall may kick me on the harvest amount.
after the spring rains stop for the summer,
i won't be getting anything 'till it cools off
for the fall. i think the northern growing season
and climate allows for a faster maturity
for your vegetables.
i'm looking forward to that first grilled cheese
with freshly harvested thin sliced maters
and onions. ;D




( i wonder where the watch-toads from
last year went ? :-\ )

you may need a load of sand
if your spot is soupy.

I've got most things planted. I'm just waiting for the weather to warm up so things will grow. 34 degrees last night didn't help much. At least I didn't see any frost. Gonna need to dry a little so I can get some weeding done. I've had a few radishes but they were mighty small.

Everything here is a little soupy now. We got several inches of rain over the past week. Soils here drain well enough - we just need a little sun and wind to dry the top few inches off. The only real problem will be the cold snap tonight, but it'll warm back up soon.

My wife is using 'greenland gardener' raised bed boxes and some large containers. She planted on Good Friday and everything is coming along nice. I planted too in my raised beds, but am putting in more compost to help my plants along. They weren't looking good and I pulled some up. I intend to replant this next week. Apparently I need much more compost than I thought.
